Puto Keyk

I just got done eating chicken and vegetable salad with my kiddos. Our kitchen is a little bit messy right now, lots of things going on with egg coloring hehehe. For the meantime, here's the picture of the snack we made. We call this puto in the Philippines, it's made from rice flour mix with added sugar and cheese. It's our version of cupcakes.
Oh, the word cake is Keyk in tagalog.

I use the ready mix flour Diane and I only add oil and sugar. I found this one online.


All about Eggs
Original recipe makes 3 dozen
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups white sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
6 eggs
1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups water
2 1/4 cups Edam cheese, shredded


Grease small cake, puto molds, or ramekins for use in a steamer. Mix the flour, sugar, and baking powder together in a bowl. In a separate, large bowl, scramble the eggs with the evaporated milk and water.

Fold the dry mixture into the eggs until evenly blended.

Fill the prepared molds 2/3 of the way up with the batter and top with shredded cheese.

Fill a wok or a sauce pan that will hold a steamer basket with a few inches of water.

Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat.

Place the molds into a steamer basket and place over the boiling water and cover.

Steam until a toothpick inserted in the center of one of the putos comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack and serve warm or at room temperature.

30 mins
50 mins

If you do not have access to a steamer: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven. Pour your batter into greased muffin tins and place the tins into a large high sided pan; place onto the rack of the preheated oven. Carefully pour boiling water into the large pan, so that it reaches half way up the sides of the muffin tin. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 35 minutes.
