I always make puto at home, especially when my daughter craves for it. Puto is a Filipino Rice Cake that is even more delicious with your favorite toppings like cheese, salted eggs, or butter.
I am making them using jelly cups, muffin trays, and round pans. But it doesn’t look the same as the traditional puto in the Philippines. I want it just the right size and shape, and this puto molds would do the job perfectly, just the way I like it.
I want to have this puto molds. They’re really cute and colorful (the color doesn’t matter though but it’s really attractive isn’t it?)
I want to buy these puto molds. I hope I could have it before May comes in. My friend is going to have a baby shower very soon, and I am thinking to make puto or puto pao to bring on the said occasion. Can someone please tell me where to buy these colorful puto molds? I couldn’t find like this here in New Zealand but there’s one on Amazon. It’s not colorful but I guess it doesn’t matter…
This is a part of my daughter’s activity at school. They learned how to make unleavened bread, and so in the weekends, my daughter taught me how to make it too. Unleavened bread is a flat bread that doesn’t use leavening agents. These flat breads holds special religious significance to adherent Judaism and Christianity.
Jews consume unleavened bread such as matzo during passover.
Unleavened bread is used in the Christian liturgy when celebrating Eucharist.
Now, after some knowledge about it, here is the recipe in making unleavened bread.
In some countries like New Zealand, cake flour is not available or maybe I just can’t find one. But, let’s not pass a great recipe just because we don’t have ingredients on hand. Here is a handy substitute for cake flour…
1. Mix 1 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour with 1/4 cup of cornstarch. This yields 2 cups of cake flour for your recipe.
2. An easy way to do this is to put 2 tablespoons of the cornstarch into the bottom of a 1 cup measure, then fill to the top with flour.
3. Sift the flour withyour dry ingredients as usual.
