How to make Puto Cheese

I am not much of a baker but if there’s something that I like, I can’t sleep well till I know how to make it. So today I am making me a Puto Cheese. A famous filipino delicacy.

Here’s what you need:
•4 cup all-purpose flour
•2-1/2 tbsp. baking powder
•2 cup sugar
•2-1/2 cup water
•1/2 cup butter, melted
•1 cup evaporated milk
•1 egg, at room temperature
•slices of cheese

What to do:
Prepare steamer with water. Prepare and grease individual molds (I used muffin cups); set aside.
In a bowl, Mix together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder and sugar.

Pour mixture into individual molds, filling about three-quarters full.

Place the molds or muffin cups in the steamer. Top each with slices of cheese. Steam for about 20 minutes.

(If you’re using Quickmelt cheese, put the cheese slices at the end of steaming. Steam for another 2 minutes, just to melt the cheese on top.)

Remove puto from the steamer. Unmold and arrange in a serving platter.
