Snowman Steamed Bun aka Mantou 雪人馒头


I made snowman that will only melt in your mouth ~ Snowman Steamed Bun aka Mantou. These Chinese steamed buns are springy and soft, I shaped it round like marshmallow to serve with braised meat, easy for the little one to grab and dip the gravy. ;)






I have got my first bread maker - Song Cho Bread Maker. Made these steamed bun to try out the KNEAD function to see if it's powerful. To my surprise, the small stirring rod did an amazing kneading job. I'm having fun playing with this new toy, more bread maker recipes coming soon. Stay tuned! ;)



Ingredients:
材料

135g Milk 牛奶 135克

50g Castor Sugar 细砂糖 50克

3/4 tbsp Oil 油 3/4汤匙

250g Hong Kong Flour/ All Purpose Flour 香港包粉/普通面粉 250克

1 tsp Yeast 酵母 1小匙

Method: 步骤

1. Take out bread barrel from Song Cho Bread Maker. Install the stirring rod. Add Milk > Castor Sugar > Oil > Flour > Yeast into bread barrel. 
将牛奶》细砂糖》油》面粉》酵母跟次序放入松厨面包机。





2. Return bread barrel into Song Cho bread maker, press bread barrel down, turn it by clockwise and make sure it is installed firmly. Press < MENU >, select <#15 FAST KNEAD DOUGH > , press < START >.
安装好后按键《MENU》,选择 《#15 FAST KNEAD DOUGH 》,按 《START》。





3. When the dough is ready, transfer the dough onto lightly floured table top. Gently knead the dough to form a ball shape so it's not sticky to handle.
面团打好后拿出,用手揉圆至表面光滑不粘手。





4. Roll out the dough, cover the dough with cling wrap, let it rest for 5 minutes. Use 2 different sizes round cutters to cut out 2 different sizes dough to make the snowman's head and body. Transfer onto parchment paper, repeat for the rest. Optional: Portion out a small piece of dough, knead in red food colouring, shape into tiny cones to make the snowman's nose.
把面团擀平,盖上,休面5分钟。用两个不同大小的圆形模割面团(看图)。







5. Let it proof for about 50 minutes. Steam on high heat for 15 minutes. When it's done, turn off heat. Let it sit in the steamer for 5 minutes before removing from the steamer. When the steamed buns are completely cooled, use edible marker to draw the snowman facial details.
做好造型后发酵50分钟。放进蒸炉大火蒸15分钟。 蒸好后熄火,待5分钟才把馒头拿出。待凉后画上雪人即可。若喜欢我的食谱,可以LIKE和追随我的面书专页,不要错过最新食谱发布。

Rabbit Rice Bowl 小兔蔬菜肉碎盖饭



Animal/ Character Food Art - Rabbit Rice Bowl 小兔蔬菜肉碎盖饭. The adorable rabbit is made of hard boiled egg, sitting on a bowl of steamed rice topped with vegetables and stir fry minced meat. This rabbit is very similar to the famous character, Miffy. ;)

Last week, I received a request from one of my follower who wants to learn how to make simple edible rabbit for her children...







I have made this simple one for her. It's easy, I think she's able to replicate it for her children. My boy loves this rabbit so much, I hope her children will love it too. ❤️








中文食谱:点击右边Translate,然后选择中文翻译

How I made it:

1. Cook rice and blanch vegetables. Optional: Prepare mini carrots, use picture below for reference.





Cook a hard boil egg, peel and shape it round - while the egg is still warm, apply pressure on top and bottom of the egg.

2. Cut the egg into half. Use half for the rabbit head, the other half cut into 4 slices.





3. Pick 2 slices to make the rabbit's ears. Cut out 2 circles using the remaining egg white to make the rabbit's paws.




4. Cover with cling wrap. Meanwhile, stir fry minced meat - My boy named this Popo's (grandma's) recipe minced meat. A super delicious homey dish that goes really well with rice, recipe credit to my mom.
