Recipe Ingredients for Chinese steamed buns

3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup warm water
1 tablespoon margarine
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 1/2 serving red bean paste sweetened

Recipe Directions for Chinese steamed buns

  1. Combine the ingredients and mix well. The dough needs to be somewhat supple for streching and shaping, so add a little extra water if necessary (I added a couple of extra tablespoons).

  2. Knead by hand for approximately 10-12 minutes or by machine for 5-7 minutes. Set aside in a covered bowl and let rise for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

  3. Divide the dough into a dozen pieces form each into a ball. If you are going to fill them, as I did, let them rest for 5 minutes or so before flattening them to fill them.

  4. Once they are shaped, let rest for 10 minutes. During this time, bring the water in your steamer to a boil.

  5. Red bean paste can be made from scratch by cooking and sweetening azuki beans. I was pleased to find canned red bean paste at the local Chinese market.

  6. To fill, flatten the balls of dough into circles and place a tablespoon of filling on top.

  7. Close them up and either reroll them seam side down for a smooth bun or pinch them to the top if you want them to tear open on top. I personally prefer the torn look.

  8. Place each ball of dough on a small piece of parchment or wax paper and place in the steamer. Cover and steam for approximately 15 minutes. Remove from heat and serve warm.
