Puto (Rice Cake)

We Filipinos call it as one of the "kakanin." Puto or rice cake is one of our favorite food for merienda or snacks and can be eaten as a dessert. We usually eat it with Dinuguan or Pork Blood Stew (Puto and Dinuguan). But I just love eating it alone without the Dinuguan. Above is a picture of my friend's Puto. It was served on her daughter's birthday party. It tasted good! By the way, you may add cheese as toppings. It may be called Puto Cheese too.


1 c. rice flour
1 stick butter
3 eggs
1 1/4 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 c. Bisquick
1 (19 oz.) can coconut milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. milk
1/2 tsp. salt

Mix all the ingredients to form a batter and pour in a deep baking pan (round) 2/3 full and cook in a steamer for 45 minutes. Source: Cooks.com
