Cheese Puto Recipe

This fluffy after-school staple is surprisingly easy to whip up at home!

Puto is a familiar rice cake that's usually eaten as a snack or merienda, or paired with other Filipino food favorites such as dinuguan (pork blood stew) or pancit

The classic puto is made with rice flour but this easy puto version is one you can make at home: you can use all-purpose flour. This version (one of the most common, too) is topped with cheddar cheese but you can also top it with bacon or salted egg. The flavor and toppings are endless! 

You also don't need fancy equipment to cook this kakanin. It's simply steamed; you can even use a rice cooker to make these fluffy rice cakes.
