Lotus Leaf Shape Steam Buns/荷葉包

All purpose flour 200 g

Water 110 g

Instant dry yeast 2 g

Sugar 15 g

Oil 10 g

Pour everything together in a big bowl and use chopsticks to mix until you don’t see any liquid. Knead the mixture until everything comes together. Leave it inside the bowl and cover with a damp cloth.

15 minutes later, take the dough out and knead for 10 minutes until the surface is smooth, leave it in the bowl again and cover with the damp cloth for about 1.5 hours to 2 hours until twice in size (depend on the temperature).

Take the dough out and roll it to a long roll and cut it evenly to 6 pieces.

Take one piece out and knead it about 10 times, then roll it into a round ball. Then do the same for the rest of them.

Take the first ball out, use a rolling pin to roll it out to a oval shape, brush/spread some oil on it then fold it over.

Use a cake scraper to lightly cut some liners on the top then use a chopstick to fold the edges a little to make it look like leaf.

Use a damp cloth to cover them up and let rest for 30 minutes.

Bring some water to boil then steam the buns over the water in a bamboo steamer for 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes turn the heat off then leave them in the steamer for 5 minutes. ( don’t take the lid off right after you turn the heat off)
