Freshly and Lovingly Steamed on : 22nd Feb 2014

My oven is giving me tonnes of issue these few weeks. Every attempt at baking turned into episodes of disaster. I am at the bottom of the valley. I needed a helping hand but the electronic plate which Bosch technician said it is a must to replace will take weeks to arrive.

I have endured weeks of non activities. I missed the smell. I missed sinking my hand into the dough. I missed producing pieces of work here.

It looks like I will not be able to use the oven for a while. So I resorted to steaming. I have never been able to produce very flawless steamed buns before. Since my oven is down, its God’s will that I try steaming these buns again.

I was pacing up and down this little space of mine while waiting for the end result. You cannot imagine the joy when I lifted up the wok cover to see these pillowy pigs. Just totally happy. Okie, I shall leave this recipe with you and get on to prepare my night out with the girls.

Ingredients(材料):

300g + 2 Tbsp Hongkong Flour
(300克 + 2 汤匙 水仙粉)
3g Instant Yeast
(3克即溶酵母)
3g Baking Powder
(3克泡打粉)
40g Granulated Sugar
(40克细砂糖)
160ml Water
(160克水)
15g Canola oil
(15克玉米油或植物油)

Directions(做法):

Mix flour, yeast, baking powder and sugar together in the mixer bowl. Mix well before pouring in the water and oil. Stir with a spoon to combine before kneading it for 10 mins.

把水仙粉,即溶酵母,泡打粉和糖放人搅拌器里拌均。然后加入水和油,混合均匀。之后揉十分钟。

Cover it and let it proof for 1 hr or until double in size. Once that is done, divide into 45g dough. Round these up and placed it on square pieces of parchment paper. The ears, nose and tail are made of 1g each of dough. Eyes are simply sesame seeds.

面团揉好侯用保鲜纸盖上。让面团发酵1小时或直到面团发至两倍大后进行切割。分成45克的小面团。整理成圆形。鼻子,耳朵和尾巴的面团各1克的重量, 也整理成圆形备用。眼睛部分是用黑芝麻形成。把猪猪照型做成就可进入第二次发酵。

Let it proof for 15 mins. During which, hest up the water in the wok. Ensure the water is boiling before placing the buns in. Steam for 12 mins at medium heat.

整理后的圆形面团让它再度发酵15分钟。在等待时可把在锅里的水煮开备用。面团第二次发酵后就可放入蒸锅里以中火蒸个十二分钟。

Do not lift the cover once you off the heat. Let it rest for 2 mins.

蒸好后不要立刻把锅盖拿开。熄火后让馒头在蒸锅里休息2分钟后再把锅盖掀起。

This is a plain bun because I am testing recipe. You can put any desired fillings in if you wanna to attempt it. :)

这是个基本馒头做法。如果你喜欢的话可包入红豆等等馅料。可自由发挥创意。
