YEAH~~~ I made BUNs!!!! And you know what? it was soooooo EASY!!! Because I had a handy tool from barstools

Healthy buns ingredients: 2 cup white flour, 2 cup WW flour, 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp sugar, pinch of salt and 1 packet of active yeast.

Usually buns in China are made with only white flour because it’s more spongy and tastes better. But you know me… I like to play around and add more healthier ingredients. ;)

Add ingredients (in that order) to the machine

choose the dough option and wait! ;)

Meanwhile, I walked to an asian market to re-stock lotus powder :lol:

It was like 3 miles walk…. rejuvenating and relaxing. When I came back, the dough was almost ready

put it in the container that will be used to steam, and let it sit for another 20 min

and steam it for 20-25 min. I had to put chopsticks to avoid the water to get into the buns

I was too excited and forgot to put some oil to the steam basket and this happened :(

anyway… the end product is a spongy, slightly sweet bun!! Just like what we get in China if not better! :D

Of course, I ate other things other than buns ;) …. Look what I had

Spring is sooo close! Are you excited? I AM!! :D

Q: What’s your favorite season and why? Mine is definitely end of spring or beginning of summer because I relate to that period to vacation, relax, calm and wear pretty clothes! :D
