The Filipino Puto Cheese

Photo by: the Author

A Puto is a Filipino muffin or cake. Traditionally, Filipinos loved to eat puto with coffee or hot chocolate. It is an everyday snack, mostly in the afternoon, especially to the oldies. The word Puto derived from an Indian dish “Puttu” – a breakfast dish of steamed cylinders of ground rice layered with coconut. Like the puto, it is made of rice flour and steamed in a circular molder.

In todays generation the puto has been called Puto Cheese because of the cheese toppings. The puto cheese is more fluffy than the original puto, and more sweeter. Some puto cheese uses 1st class flour, others are 3rd class.

Try your puto cheese at home. Make sure it is 100% Filipino made (because nationally we have different tastes). 😄 You can order this at Citibread Bakeshop located in Oroquieta City, Philippines.
