[Roundup] - Aspiring Bakers #31 - Bao Ho-Chiak 包好吃 (May 2013)

Hi everyone,

After hosting the AB #25 - Steaming Hot Cakes event in Nov 2012, I am glad to be back hosting AB #31 - Bao Ho-Chiak (包好吃) event in May 2013, thanks to Small Small Baker for giving me this opportunity! As I received only 37 entries as of 23 May, I thought I may only get 40 to 50 entries due to the school exam period. Then all of a sudden, I was overwhelmed by a spike in submissions within the last 10 days and I finally received a total of 88 entries as of 2 June! Thank you so much for your great support!

I would like to thank all the bloggers who have spent their precious time and effort to test out and submit their bao recipes. It made me REALLY happy (and hungry) everyday by just going through and admiring all the baos that you gals made. I know it usually takes half a day to make all these baos: you have to prepare the fillings in advance, knead the dough, wait for the baos to proof, add in the fillings, do the pleating and finally the steaming (or baking or frying). Hence each bao is truly a labour of love! I hope you gals enjoyed your bao-making journey as much as I did. For those first-timers who are interested in making their first baozi but who are still procrastinating, look no further! This repertoire of 80+ bao recipes represents the collective wisdom of 39 bloggers! And you will probably be able to find the best chinese steamed bao/bun recipes here, be it steamed, baked or fried buns! But before you start, do remember to get the right type of flour^-^

Coming up, I will be hosting the "Little Thumbs Up" event for June, and the theme for this month is curry powder/curry paste. Do watch this space for more news. :)

最近这个月肚子经常呱呱叫,每天看到这么多玲琅满目、型型色色的包子从我的电邮飞进来,不流口水才怪。终于挨过了一个月"包好吃",下个月又要饿肚子了,因为每天都要欣赏咖哩。:p

非常感谢网界各路英雄娘子纷纷鼎力相助,献上这么多不同款式不同口味的包子。希望你们和我一样,在网上串门子的当儿能从中学习很多关于做包子的窍门。所谓熟能生巧,只要勤学习,再包一两下就"包好吃",可以开包子店了,不是吗? :p

话不多说,请好好享用这80多道包子吧,一定包好吃,包你吃到笑!  :)

Enjoy your baozi,  Bao Ho-Chiak! :)

  7. Hi Miss B, thanks for hosting this event, looks like I have more choice of steamed paus to make for my family and friends. BTW, I have sometimes use plain flour to make paus. They turned out well except for the colour [not whitish as pau flour].

  10. Thank YOU, Miss B for hosting this awesome 'pao' theme AND 'pushing' me into this journey I thought would be a hopeless case for me. LOL! I was surprised and over the moon with my first proper steaming adventure. Believe you me, that was the first time I have ever used yeast or shortening or pao flour. Ha ha ha! BTW, just made again last weekend for my hungry guys. We LOVE pao's and definitely "Bao ho chiak lor" :-D

    1. Hi Simone,

      I don't really understand your question on why you said your buns did not become as BIG as those bought in the stores. Do you mean that they shrank in size or became wrinkly after steaming, or the buns were simply not big enough because there was not enough dough for each bun, or they were not just not as fluffy as what you expected them to be?

      And which recipes did you try on this page? Have you consulted the individual bloggers who provided the recipes?

      There are no secrets on getting the bapaos big and fluffy, really. Just find a good recipe, use the right type of flour, make sure you knead the dough properly and proof it accordingly until doubled in size. Then divide it into sufficiently large portions for a bapao, I would say at least 60 grams, then add the fillings and cover and proof again if required.

      When you steam, make sure the water in the steamer is already boiling, then after steaming, you may wish to open the lid a teeny-weeny bit to let off some steam, let the buns rest for few minutes in the steamer before taking them out. This will prevent wrinkly bao skin. You can also wrap a tea towel around the lid of the steamer to prevent steam from dripping onto the buns and making them wet and wrinkly.

    1. Hi Wendy,
      I don't have any egg tart recipe yet, but it's definitely on my to-do-list for this year, I will probably be making one batch of egg tarts in Nov or Dec this year. :)
