• 2 cups rice flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups coconut milk or fresh milk
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 180g Cheddar cheese
  • Sift the rice flour, salt, baking powder and white sugar together.
  • In a large bowl, add the coconut milk to the sifted ingredients and blend until the mixture is smooth.
  • Slice the cheddar cheese into thin rectangles.
  • Carefully pour the mixture into the individual puto mold (greased with butter beforehand), then place the sliced cheese on top of each puto mixture.
  • Steam for about 20 to 30 minutes.
  • To check if the Puto is already cooked, insert a toothpick into the center of each puto, make that the toothpick must come out clean.


  1. You can change the puto color by incorporating food colors in the recipe.
  2. Instead of cheese, you can use a different topping like salted egg (itlog na pula)
