    Serves: 18 

    • 500 g (4 cups) all-purpose flour
    • 400 g (2 cups) white sugar
    • 15 g (1 tbsp) baking powder
    • 6 eggs
    • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
    • 355 ml (1 1/2 cups) water
    • 255 g(2 1/4 cups) Edam cheese, shredded

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Grease small cake, puto molds, or ramekins for use in a steamer. Mix the flour, sugar, and baking powder together in a bowl. In a separate, large bowl, scramble the eggs with the evaporated milk and water. Fold the dry mixture into the eggs until evenly blended. Fill the prepared molds 2/3 of the way up with the batter and top with shredded cheese.
    2. Fill a wok or a sauce pan that will hold a steamer basket with a few inches of water. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat. Place the molds into a steamer basket and place over the boiling water and cover.
    3. Steam until a toothpick inserted in the center of one of the putos comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack and serve warm or at room temperature.
