Last weekend something lovely arrived from The Spoiled Mummy herself, Grace Barbers-Baja last weekend! And of course, it was fabulously packaged with a sweet handwritten note! Love it!
The moment I opened it, it smelled soooooo good! According to the instructions we are supposed to resteam for 2minutes or microwave for 30 second. Nobody even waited for it to be heated! LOL!
DiploBaby who usually doesn’t eat puto, was really attracted by the look and delicious smell. I told him it was a muffin and he totally dug in! He finished 2 in one sitting!
WHAT IS PUTO?
Puto is a Filipino steamed rice cake, traditionally made from slightly fermented rice dough or galapong.
It is eaten as is or as an accompaniment to a number of savory dishes, most notably dinuguan which I don’t eat because it’s made of pigs blood. But puto is something that is universally loved. Dinuguan not so much.
Puto is an umbrella term for various kinds of indigenous steamed cakes, including those made without rice. It is a sub-type of rice cakes or kakanin. Source: Wikipedia.
Ube is purple yam, while Pandan is a tropical plant with fragrant leaves that are widely used for flavoring in South East Asian countries.
Puto People don’t use preservatives in their products that’s why it only lasts 4-5 days refrigerated. Where to order them below.

Thank you again Grace and Puto People for this wonderful weekend treat! I’m always super happy when I get to teach my son to eat local delicacies!
