Char Siew Bao

Char Siu Bao

I’ve tried a few recipes for bao skin but so far, this is probably my favorite. Most of the recipes require 3 days but this one only requires 1 day. Bao skin recipe is from here

    This looks so authentic. I can tell it is soft, and light…just like in the tim sum restaurant. You’ve done so well.

    Do you think I am brave enough to try this……mmmm, I doubt. I have to think about it. Lots of work? 😛

    I can’t get cake flour here. What is double baking yeast? Also, what shortening do you use?

    I await your answer eagerly. 🙂

    By the way, one item striked off your mile long list? Hehehe.

    Looks good & love the color of your char siew! I’m so lazy I just use the pau mix. 😛

    I also make some “Char Siew Pau” yesterday. If I am not mistaken your recipe is the smiling pau type, soft and fluffy which sell in the dim sum shop. I also got the recipe for this but quite ‘mah fun’, got to take 3 days to make the pau skin. That is why I choose to use the easier recipe take me 1 hour only to make the pau skin.

    Think I will never have the patience to make my own bao, the skin is just too much work. Wooo….your bao so moist…

    judy: do try it. Actually it’s pretty easy. Just make the filling & starter dough a day ahead & the skin the next day.

    LCOM: thks! I’ve never tried the pau mix b4. I heard that it’s pretty good. Will try it one day.

    sue sue: That’s why I like this recipe ‘cos only takes 1 day. I also dun have patience for the 3 day one. : )

    tigerfish: thks! Actually I also dun make it often. Too lazy! :p
