Pulboron is a staple in most bakeshops and is a favorite Pinoy candy-cake mix. While there are so many variations available, making your own polvoron makes you choose the ingredients of your choice and the flavor you love.

Here's a basic recipe for Pulboron.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup melted butter or margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup powdered milk
  • Flavoring/variation (Optional) - chopped kasuy (cashew nut), pinipig strawberry, chocolate coated, ube, peanut and cookies-and-cream, etc 
  1. Toast flour in a pan over medium heat for about 10 minutes or until light brown. Mix constantly for even toasting.
  2. Add powdered milk and mix for another 5 minutes. Remove from the pan and let it cool.
  3. In a bowl, place the cooled flour and milk mix then add in sugar and melted butter. Mix thoroughly until it can be formed or shaped. Test a small portion of the mix if it retains its shaped
  4. (Add your flavoring options here. Make sure the mixture remains almost dry yet holds on to shape even after the additions)
  5. Using polvoron molder, shape the whole mix them into bite-size cakes. Make sure it is very compact
  6. Wrap in cellophane or Japanese paper.
  7. Place in the fridge for about an hour.
