Coffee Mantou


Still remember the leftover starter dough from the last recipe? Right, you can use that for this recipe as well. This is another simple and easy to make steamed bun with my favourite flavour. Frankly, I don't really like the plain one... so dull! Make me feel like my nose is sick! hehe....

Starter Dough Ingredients, Click here.

Main Dough Ingredients :
300gm all purpose flour
75gm sugar
1 tspn yeast
70gm starter dough (one portion), tear in small pieces
175ml warm milk
3/4 tbsp instant coffee powder (omit this for plain dough)
1 tbsp oil

Method :

- combine instant coffee powder with warm milk in a mixer bowl and mix well.
- add in the starter dough and other ingredients.
- mix to combine to form a soft dough.
- immediately place soft dough to working table.
*

- join both dough together and roll flat between two plastic sheets.
- then roll it up like a swiss roll.


- divide dough into sizes as desired.
- place them to steaming tray and leave to proof for 20-30 mins.
- finally, steam over medium heat for 10-12 mins and serve hot.


Mine is quite big or maybe you can make it smaller! Hmm...mmm...these are really soft and fluffy! Hope you guys will like this too!

I love Mantou.. the way they do not have fillings and the flavour comes from the buns itself. I've never had a coffee flavoured one though. Can't wait to try this out!

Lyndsey said...

Ahh...so you like the big ones? They do look wonderful. You are so creative, no dull plain ones here! :)

I prefer steamed bun than baked bun, as it is less heaty. This one looks good!
