Easy Steam Bun Recipe

Craving for buns suddenly and have no buns at home!!! What should I do???
Make them!!!

Sweet Potato Bun(Make 4)

80g      Sweet Potato
1 tbsp   Sugar

100g     Cake Flour
1 tbsp   Sugar
1/2 tsp  Baking powder
1/4 tsp  Vanilla essence/extract
100ml   Water ( don't think you are going to use all)

Peel the skin and cut the sweet potato into pieces (smaller for easy boiling) until it's cooked. Drained.
Add sugar and you can either mash it or blitz it using blender. I mash it :)
Divide into 4, roll them into balls and set a side.

For the buns, put all ingredients except water into a big bowl, add water a little at a time and mix it well by hand until it forms a dough. Test by feeling it, should be like earlobe.

Divide into 4.
Lightly floured the bench and roll 1 piece of dough make it to round and flat. Put the filling in and pinch the ends around together so it forms a round ball. Cut baking paper into squares and place the buns on top.
Repeat for the rest.

Place them on a plate and steam it for 10 minutes.
Then Voila! You can eat them now!

hehe.. Easy?

Why do I make sweet potato as fillings... well because I made sweet potato truffle mash for dinner so I thought I would use some for bun fillings too hahaha so I don't have to get other ingredients :P
You can totally use Red Bean paste, I think it will taste much better :P
Joe's mom gonna make this into pork buns.. hahaha which I think it will work :P Let's see... hehe

Good luck!
