Puto is a steamed bite-sized cake popular in the Philippines. It is usually eaten as a dessert but can also be eaten for breakfast with a cup of hot chocolate. It is also perfect with margarine as a topping. Others are eating this together with Dinuguan or Pork blood stew. It can also be eaten without anything on it, its taste is already perfect.
