Classic Puto

One Friday afternoon, I thought of cooking Pancit Palabok. And thinking, it must have something to compliment this delicious dish, so I made the Classic Puto. I want to have flavors like Ube or pandan but I am short of its ingredients.



The recipe is very easy to follow and quick to do. My family loved it and I made the second batch as soon as the first was finished. I added cheese on top for a bit flavor.

Try it and its great!

Sharing you the recipe. If you have the book, it is on page 59. Otherwise, here it is:
