Puto Cheese Recipe

Puto Cheese Recipe


  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 100 ml evaporated or fresh milk
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup grated cheese
  • strip of cheese for topping


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar and baking powder.
  2. Add the milk and egg and mix with hand or stand mixer at medium speed only until batter becomes smooth.
  3. Add the water, butter and vanilla extract and mix well for a minute or two. Lastly add the grated cheese and fold in slowly using a spatula or spoon.
  4. Grease each mold with butter and fill the molds with batter up to ¾ full. Add a strip of cheese on top of the batter.
  5. Place the molds in the steamer and steam for about 10 to 12 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • While mixing the ingredients, avoid using high speed of the mixer or the Puto would rise too much and become airy. 
  • You may also mix by hand using a whisk but also at moderate speed.
  • While steaming, I place a cheese cloth or clean kitchen towel in between steamer racks and the top cover to avoid water from dripping to the batter.
  • Just double (or triple) the recipe to double the yield.
  • Silicon cupcake molds can also be used.
