Buttered Puto is a variation of the famous steamed rice cake, Puto. This steamed mini cakes are usually eaten as dessert but most prefer to have them during breakfast (with hot coffee or chocolate) or mid-afternoon snack (usually eaten with dinuguan or blood stew). This Puto variation uses ordinary flour instead of rice flour (not even galapong) and is so easy prepare. The ingredients used in this recipe are so common that you could find them in any grocery store (you just need to have the molds and steamer to get everything done).
