Success!!! I Did It!!!

I have been craving the puto espesyal of my brother back in Philippines. He makes puto espesyal so delicious and no one can't just simply resist to grab one, two, three or even more! In fact, every time we have an occasion back home, Puto espesyal of his is always present as a dessert. And now that i craved for it, i decided to make some. Actually, i made some long time ago when i just barely got here in America, but it didn't turned out so good like what i expected it because i used wrong ingredients to it. I had no cream of tartar to mix it with the egg white and also the flour i used was just an all purpose flour. The result, gewy, and wet! I so hated it and ate some, hubby ate some of it too but i threw the rest because i was so disappointed about my cooking, it's failed!

So, when i was able to chat with my sister who is the master of the Puto Espesyal, who also taught our younger brother on how to make it, she told me not to use the all purpose flour. I've got to use the cake flour and i've got to have the cream of tartar for the egg white. So i did! Hubby bought all the ingredients i need and couldn't wait until tomorrow to cook it to see if it will turn out good this second time around, and of course i am bragging about it now because it is indeed a success! Just take a look at this photo i shared below! I had different kinds of shapes because i used different muffin molds for it. Actually, since i really don't have muffin molds that are meant for Puto Espesyal, i was so clever to use the ice tray, isn't that sounds funny? But it turned out so good though! Take a look at it! Yummy yum yum!!!
