STEAMED MUFFINS ~ We call them “PUTO” in the Philippines. This is a slight modification of my dad’s unwritten recipe. They are my favorite afternoon snacks. I like to serve them warm with butter.

    • Thanks, Linda! They are very simple to make. You can add cheddar cheese on top or mix a teaspoon of aniseed. You can also add different colors! :)
