It is a reality that not all Filipino households have Ovens. And this is the reason why most of the native desserts in our country are steamed. Almost all homes have tiered steamers we all grew up seeing.

Anyway, this post is part of’s series of posts on food items that can be sold for extra income. I have earlier written about no-bake sweets, gelatin-based desserts, as well as chocolate-based desserts that can provide a side business for moms like us.

So for the third issue in this series, I am suggesting to you some

Steamed Filipino Dessert Recipes for Business:

  1. Puto Leche / Leche Puto– Although the name is kind of weird, this is one happy dessert that you can sell. It is basically your usual puto in steroids because its base is made of custard-like leche flan, and the top portion is the usual native puto. You can color the rice cake any color you like too so that it will look all the more presentable and happier! Here is a very easy recipe to follow.
  2. Leche Flan – Leche Flan is one of the most popular desserts in the Philippines, and you can sell it either by the llanera or by small cups if you plan to sell it as an individual dessert. Anyway, there are a lot of Leche Flan Recipes out there – some are disappointing too – this one is really close to what my Inay makes – super creamy and smooth Leche Flan.
