How To Make Bao Dough:

To make the bao dough combine the yeast and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook.

Add warm water and milk and mix to combine.

Add the butter and salt and knead for around 10 minutes or until the dough has come off of the sides of the bowl.

Place the dough in a bowl coated with some vegetable oil. Cover the bowl with a towel and let rest for at least 1 hour and 30 minutes or until the dough has doubled in size.

How To Cook Bao Buns:

Bao buns are steamed rice typically in a steamer basket. The steam puffs up the buns which create a fluffy light texture.

If you do not have a steamer basket you can make your own by using a large stockpot, a colander and a lid.

You can also use the instant pot to cook Bao buns.
