Tips For Making Better Puto
Here are some tips and tools that can make your puto-making experience even easier:
Use the right tools: Invest in a good steamer basket or puto molds that can withstand high temperatures. This will ensure that your puto cooks evenly and comes out perfectly shaped.
Measure the water accurately: The right amount of water is crucial in achieving the perfect puto texture. Be sure to follow the instructions on the Maya Pancake Mix box and measure the water accurately.
Add flavorings and toppings: The Maya Pancake Mix is a versatile base that you can add different flavorings and toppings to. Try adding grated cheese, coconut, or ube flavoring to mix things up.
Store the leftover batter: If you have leftover batter, you can store it in the refrigerator and use it for up to 2 days. Just make sure to cover the bowl with plastic wrap or transfer the batter to an airtight container.
Use a rice cooker or instant pot: If you don’t have a steamer basket or puto molds, you can use a rice cooker or instant pot to steam your puto. Just pour the batter into a heat-proof bowl that fits inside the cooker and steam on the “steam” setting for around 15 minutes.
With these tips and tools, you’ll be able to make delicious and fluffy puto rice cakes in no time using the Maya Pancake Mix. So what are you waiting for? Grab your ingredients and start steaming!
