Puto (Cheese Puto)

 My first ever made puto! Puto anyone? I can't remember the last time I had puto. I guess it's been years. Thank goodness I bought a pack of puto mix when we went to an Asian store a month ago. Today, Akesha and I attempted to make puto for the first time. I'm glad it turned out well...very very well!
Right now, I'm enjoying my new steamer machine!
What is puto by the way? Puto is a steamed rice cake popular in the Philippines. Steaming, a popular cooking method in the PI along with boiling and roasting, was incorporated into Filipino cuisine and cooking by other Asian countries. It is usually eaten as a dessert, but can also be eaten for breakfast dipped into or paired with a cup of hot coffee or hot chocolate.

When I read your post about home made puto, I remembered my late mother who used to baked delicious puto and siopao whcih I really relsihed whenever she offered them to me. Her steamer was the old fashioned one made from sliced bamboos. Great that Akesha and your hubby get to taste puto as a remembrance from our country. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
