Dough for Fluffy Steamed Meat Buns

This easy dough for fluffy steamed meat buns can be made using the bread machine.

Ingredients: 10-12 buns

Cake flour
240 g
Strong bread flour
60 g
Instant dry yeast
1 teaspoon
Baking powder
1 teaspoon
2 tablespoons
170 ml
Vegetable oil
2 tablespoons
1 teaspoon


1. Place all the ingredients into the bread machine, except for the water and vegetable oil, and start the dough course. When the dry ingredients have been incorporated, pour in the water gradually.
2. When the dough has come together, pour in the vegetable oil. It should take about 15 minutes to knead the dough. Let the dough rise until twice the original size.
3. Divide the dough into 10-12 portions, roll into balls, and let it rest for 20 minutes. Flatten out the dough so the centers are thicker than the outer edges, place the filling in the center and wrap. Let the buns rise again for 15-20 minutes, and steam them for 12-15 minutes.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to make fluffy steamed meat buns and sweet red bean paste buns at home. I felt like filling the buns myself.
