Puto (Rice Muffins)

November 06, 2010
I grabbed this recipe from Cooking Mama (By the way, huge thanks for the molds!)

Ok here goes the recipe:

You need:

* 2 cups rice flour
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 3 teaspoons baking powder
* 3/4 cup white sugar
* 2 cups (400ml in can) coconut milk

Optional: cheese, butter, grated coconut


1. In mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Mix well with fork or hand mixer.

2. Add the coconut milk and mix until all ingredients are blended and smooth.

3. Fill-in Puto molder at least 2/3 full or if you have food coloring/flavor for the cakes/pastries just divide the mixture first in separate small bowls then add drop(s) of coloring/flavor. Mix well and fill-in Puto molder.

4. Cook in steamer. Check out after 30 minutes by inserting a toothpick in the center of the muffin and comes out clean.

5. You can top the muffin with cheese. Put the cheese on muffin when almost done, or top with butter or serve with grated coconut.

Ok, verdict time. My puto wasn't as colorful as Heids' output. Maybe coz I used my icing food coloring. (Haha.. weird?)

Anyway.. it was too coconutty for me. But hubby managed to dig into around 5 pieces per eating. So good enough. :)

I suggest you put more drops of your coloring and use coconut MILK instead of cream. The coconut cream have stronger coconut flavor :)
