Puto Ube

Craving for an ube flavored puto but there is no ube in my place :(  I just used the ube flavoring, but still the real ube is the best for this.

2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
20 ml ube flavor concentrate or 1/4 cup ube powder
2 cups fresh milk or evaporated milk
cheddar cheese for toppings

1.Combine the flour, sugar and baking powder then sift it.
2. In a mixing bowl combine together the sifted ingredients, ube flavor and milk then mix very well until the batter is smooth in texture.
3. Fill the puto molder with the batter around 3/4 full then top the cheese and steam for 20 minutes or until done.
4. Let cool before unmolding it then serve it with a smile :-).


  1. Can I use evap milk instead of fresh milk?

  2. Can I use the ube powder that was being used in shakes/zagu?

    1. Thank you so much for the reply mam. I forgot to ask yesterday, what is the ratio of ube powder to cup of flour or how many tbsp or cup or ube powder per 1 cup of flour. thanks...
