  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ tsp lye water
  • Anato or atsuete (dissolved in about 1 tbsp water)
  • 2 cups water
  • Grated coconut for toppings


  • In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients: flour, sugar, lye water, anato, and water. Whisk until it's all properly mixed together.
  • Use a strainer to strain any lumps.
  • Boil a good amount of water in a steamer.
  • Rub some oil on the molds to avoid the mixture from sticking. And it’s easy to take out from the molds once cooked.
  • Put a good amount on each mold.
  • Steam with LOW HEAT for about 30 minutes. Again, it should be on LOW HEAT.
  • Let cool and remove from molds.
  • You can sprinkle some grated coconut meat or cheese. Now it's ready to serve!
