This is a nice light snack. Steam times are estimates... sorry, I haven't made these and my friend didn't write down the steam time and it seems not enough instructions on how to steam a muffin pan; they were the size of small muffins. I’ve been getting comments regarding the ingredients not being authentic. This is just another version of the recipe of which there are many all over the internet…including this one. All I know is that a friend shared this with me because I enjoyed it, and I thought you might too.


  1. Combine ingredients together; mixing well.
  2. Using muffin pans or egg poacher for molds. Grease pans with butter or Pam spray. Ok, I found a similar recipes on other sites -- they used muffin cups (I hope this helps).
  3. Pour mixture into pans (half full).
  4. Steam for about 10-15 minutes.
  5. Makes about 15-20 large muffins or 25-30 small ones.

Puto is made with rice flour not Bisquick. I can't imagine this coming out anything like what puto should be

I am sorry but my Filipino mother thought this was more like bland cupcakes. She said authentic puto is made by soaking rice overnight (OR making galapong) and liquifying it in a food processor or blender to make a thick batter. A hint of star anise would have been more appropriate rather than vanilla. She also said there are many variations but this was closer to mamon- not puto. I thought I remembered eating puto in the Phils. with cheese or salted egg on top? IDK I was 12 years old and it was too long ago. The search continues...
