How cute are these? Making them was so much but eating them… to die for.
Mantou is referred as steamed buns. You often seen plain white steam buns. With these mantou I’ve made, I added pumpkin.
Pumpkin Mantou recipe
450g plain flour or bread flour
200g pumpking (cut into pieces and steamed till soft or cooked)
150g icing sugar
1tsp baking powder
1tbsp instant yeast
30g vegetable oil
2tbsp milk powder
Combine ingredients into a mixer and mix well. Add in water and beat on high speed till smooth dough starts to form. Cover the dough and let it rest for 1.5 hours. Knead the dough and portion each to shape into a tortoise. (Note: You don’t need to shape to a tortoise, you can shape them into rounds.). Use red bean as the tortoise eyes. Rest the dough for another 30 minutes after shaping them.
You’ll need to steam the buns for five minutes in medium heat.
