My husband has craved for this particular rice cake from our hometown in Philippines but I haven’t found the recipe . I tried different recipes but still it is not the one he was looking for until I tried this recipe and he said he loves it, it’s “delicious” and it is quiet close to the puto he’s been craving for a while now. So I’m happy to share the recipe and hope you can try it for yourself:)
1 cup rice flour
1/2 cup cake flour
2 1/4 teaspoons double acting baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup + 2T evaporated milk
2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
Pinch of food coloring, if desired
Small chunks of or finely grated cheddar cheese
In a medium bowl, sift dry ingredients together. Add in the wet ingredients and mix just until combined. Do not over mix.
Heat water in bottom pan of steamer until water boils rapidly. Wrap steamer cover with a towel.
Grease puto molds or mini muffin pans then scoop puto batter into molds, 3/4 full.Top with grated cheese and salted egg. Decrease heat to medium then steam puto for 20 minutes. Let cool slightly before removing from the molds.
