今天试做蛋黄香菇肉包,非常成功! 赶紧选几个似摸似样的秀一下。

This is my first attempt at making bao. There's definitely room for improvement but I'm rather pleased with the result. 

I used the same dough recipe as I did for my Chinese MuffinThe filling is made up of 400 grams of minced pork (that has been marinated a few hours before), 1/3 of a salted egg yolk and a small braised mushroom.  I was able to get 18 bao in all.

The first batch of bao looked too goofy but with time my confidence grew, the pleating got easier and the bao slowly took shape. Much to my own amazement (and relief), one or 2 actually started to look like a proper bao!


I didn't realise that bao can be so easy to make!
