Ingredients to make Steamed Scallions Flower Buns

  • Dough--
  • 3- 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup warmed milk
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 5 stalks scallions, green parts finely chopped
  • olive oil for brushing

How to make Steamed Scallions Flower Buns

  1. Mix warm milk, sugar, oil, and active dry yeast together. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, until it is bubbling.
  2. Preheat oven to 200 Farenhite, then turn it off. Add in flour and mix until it all comes together. Knead until dough is elastic, smooth, but not sticky. If its too dry, you may need more milk. Dough should be soft. Place in a greased bowl, cover loosely with plastic wrap and a damp kitchen towel, and place in inactive oven.
  3. Let rise for 1 hour.
  4. When dough has risen, punch dough down and shape in balls.
  5. Pinch dough into 12 pieces.
  6. Roll one piece into a long oval. Using a sharp knife, cut 8-9 slits in the middle, without breaking any edges.
  7. Brush with oil and sprinkle with salt and scallions.
  8. Pick up the dough length wise, and use your fingers to twist and shape into a bun.
  9. Heat up a steamer. Steam for 12 minutes, then turn off heat and let it sit for 5 minutes, lid on.
  10. To store, wait for steamed buns to cool down, then place them in either plastic wrap or sandwich bags and stick them in the freezer. Steam or use a microwave (with a wet paper towel) to heat up again.

My Tip:

Let the buns rest for 30 minutes before steaming.
