Puto with Cheese

I love puto but I seldom cook this at home because the recipe that I have yields 26 pcs of puto. That is too much for two people since my son is not really fond of kakanin.

Last week, I decided to make puto with cheese using Maya pancake mix. Since there is no recipe at the box, I just followed the recipe of pancake. 


1 medium size egg 
2 tbsp oil (I used melted butter) 
3/4 cup water 
1/4 cup sugar
1 250g Maya Hotcake Mix


1. Beat the egg. Add oil (butter), water, sugar and hotcake mix.
2. Mix the ingredients and put the batter in puto molder, I use silicone mold.
3. Add cheese on top of the batter. 
4. Place the molder in the steamer. Steam for 10-15 minutes depending on the size of your molder. 

I love the result of puto with cheese and I will definitely use hotcake mix again. Next time, I’ll add salted egg.
