What do you associate puto with? When pork was still part of my diet, I associated puto with diniguan. I dunk the puto on the thick sauce, then eat it together with the pork pieces. Another puto memory is pairing it with hot chocolate drink. Puto is a great pairing food with many of our Filipino dishes. Puto is very easy to make. You can even use all-purpose flour instead of rice flour if one cannot find the latter. In this recipe, we will use all-purpose flour

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour (or better yet rice flour)
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups thick coconut cream (the first press. See How to Extract Coconut Cream or you can use coconut powder and follow instructions to make thick cream)
1 teaspoon aniseed

Directions

1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.

2. Add coconut cream to the dry ingredients. Mix until smooth.

3. Add Aniseed

4. Pour into banana-lined muffin tins.

5. Steam for 15 to 20 minutes.
