Yes, you are looking at the right photo. It was Chinese steamed bun with yam served with cheese and veggies sticks we had for breakfast. Sliced bun was pan-fried with tinny bit of butter till golden brown, slightly crispy on the outside and soft inside. Never expected yam and cheese is such a good combination.
First time made steamed bun with bread flour and milk, quite happy with the result even though my buns did not turned out as fine as I wished.
Recipe is from here available in Chinese version, translated to English as follows:
Ingredients (makes 5 jumbo buns):
500g bread flour (100%)
50g fine granulated sugar (10%)
4-5g instant dry yeast (1+1/4 tsp, 0.8% - 1%)
275-300g milk (55%-60%)
15g unsalted butter (3%)
250g yam, cut into 1cm long thin strips (I used cubed yam) and air-dried
- Mix together all ingredients except yam, knead till soft and smooth dough is formed. When pull, thin film of dough can be seen.
- Add in yam strips, knead into dough till well combined.
- Divide into 5 equal portions and shape into a ball. Place shaped dough on a piece of non-stick paper and place directly into steamer rack. (I made mine into smaller size, more buns)
- Rest for 20-30minutes.
- Steam with medium heat for 20 minutes. (I preheated my steamer)
Look at this super springy bun!
