Pumpkin Steamed Bun


Ingredients: 300g unbleached flour, 70g steamed n mashed pumpkin puree, 1tsp active dried yeast dissolved in 70ml luke warm water, 1tbsp brown sugar and 1tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Mix all ingredients, knead until a non sticky dough is formed. Add more flour if too sticky. Cover n leave aside until almost double in size. I left it for 2 hours. Roll out to thin rectagular piece. Roll like swiss roll. Cut into desired size. Leave for another 20mins. Steam with medium heat for 15mins. Turn off heat, keep lid close for another 3mins. Open the lid and you have just made yr family healthy mantou. :) Can easily substitude pumpkin to other ingredients like purple sweet potato etc.

Now we are making mantou almost every weekends. We will freeze some and let baby Phin Zhe have it at nanny's place during weekdays. Will share more mantou recipes when i have time. :)

Hi mummy Soo Sean, is me again. I try to make pumpkin Mantau for my boy according to your recipe. Result is no that good, maybe too many flour?May I know that need to put how many water? Flour is 300g? Tks for your advise.

Hi Jas, it is hard to tell you the exact flour as different batch of flour needs different amount of water. And it also depends on the pumpkin water content. You can google for youtube clip on ready dough to get a feel. It should be smooth and not sticky. Is the yeast still active? Did the dough raise to double the size? If the yeast is not active, then the dough won't raise. Good luck.

If you refer to my recipe, it should be around 70ml. I dissolve the yeast to 70ml luke warm water. If it is too wet, I add a bit of flour. If too dry, I add a bit of water. But should not be too far off if you use the same amount of pumpkin.
