Meet my eager helper. He’s always having fun doing things with me in the kitchen. He loves to eat and he know that helping me would make baking and cooking faster, therefore, he can eat soon too.

We made puto last week. It was a request from the kindergarten…yes, some of my Austrian friends love this Filipino treat so I obliged. However, poor me doesn’t really know how. lol. It was because another friend would bring puto every summer fest that they got to know about this yummy, soft “cake.”

Since the kids love this too I tried but all I can manage is a ready mix I bought from the Asia shop. 😀

Yes, I baked them instead of steaming them because – I don’t have a steamer. 😀 I read about other bloggers baking puto so I gave it a try. I used both silicon cupcake molds and tin molds – all smothered with butter by the little boy.

Pardon this forgetful Maus for not remembering how high was the oven set. It didn’t took long for the batter to rise and well, those in the silicon got a bit deformed. Those in the tin got a lovely form.

Not the usual and extravagant puto but…still is puto! 😉 Simply yummy!
