To Top

Puto Cheese

Puto looks more like a muffin. It is a Filipino snack that is traditionally made of rice. It is fluffy, soft and sweet.

Puto cheese is simply puto topped with cheese but this kind of puto is now made of all purpose flour instead of rice. And the usual puto cheese is topped with a single strip of cheese but in my own version. I use grated cheese because I think it makes it tastier.

Find out how simple it is to make a puto cheese.

  8. Top each half filled molds with grated cheese.
  9. Steam for 15-20 minutes. You will know it's done when it rises, cheese melts and toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  10. Carefully squeeze the mold to pop out the puto cheese.
  11. Serve and Enjoy!
  12. Tip: For the best taste you can add egg, vanilla extract and butter. But if you don't want to spend too much for a snack, follow this simple recipe you will only have to spend $2 for 40 pieces.
