Grocery Find : White King Puto Mix

Posted on Nov 18 2015 - 7:22am by tweenselmom

I am just so glad to try making puto (steamed rice cake) for the first time and be successful with it. I am very fond of eating puto partnered with dinuguan (pork blood stew) or pansit bihon. But most of the time, I don’t like the taste of the puto that I buy. They have this “maanta” taste that I thought, why not make my own!

I discovered White King Puto mix which costs only P25-35 a box and I saw on the box that I will only need water with the mix. I thought, there’s really nothing that much to lose so I tried making puto at home.

White King Puto

Here are the ingredients and the so simple way of making your own puto at home:

White King Puto


  • 1 200 g pack of White King Classic Puto Mix
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • 1/8 cup cooking oil
  • cheese, cut into strips
  • butter for greasing your puto molder


  1. Grease your puto molders with butter. ( I didn't have a stock of butter last time so what I did is I just brushed cooking oil on my molders)
  2. Dissolve White King Classic Puto Mix in water. Blend well and then add sugar and oil gradually.
  3. Pour puto mix up to 1/2 of molder.
  4. Put cheese strips over the top of each puto mix.
  5. Arrange puto molders in steamer and then steam from 25-30 minutes.
  6. Brush butter on the top before serving (Only if you have butter. It tastes good already even without butter.)

White King Puto

You know what, my kids love my puto. They aren’t fond of kakanin but I am so happy they told me to make some more. Don’t you love it when your family really likes what you cook, diba? I’m planning to make more this coming Christmas because my mother in law cooks delicious dinuguan. I am very sure my puto will be a hit with that dish.

Hope you enjoyed this post! Have a great day!

    I’m using instant pancake mix to cook puto, I just add sugar and cheese strips and steamed. 🙂

      Nice idea though I wanted kasi yung white puto taste talaga, not the pancake. Thanks!

    I love puto and so do the kids. Would love to try this. Will a pressure cooker work?

    Puto is such a healthy alternative to sweet goodies. I love puto, I remember my mom making bunches in different colors during special occasions. Yes, I remember how tedious it is to make them. I am so happy things are now easier nowadays.

    This post makes me want to have some puto 🙂 Dati gumagawa din ako ganyan and ang sarap nya pag nilagyan talaga ng cheese and itlog na maalat. Yummy!
