Want some puto but have an allergy to eggs? You will be happy with this eggless puto recipe! It’s also very easy and can be done in 5 steps.
Puto Cake is the Filipino version of rice cake. It can always be found in celebrations, and available in markets every morning. Pandan is a good flavoring for it that brings color and a good aroma. My children like them because they’re green food but not vegetable haha.
This is very easy to make and you dont even have to have an oven. A steamer will do. I’d like to point out to take special care in steaming by covering the cakes with cloth so that the moisture from the cover does not fall in your cupcakes.
