  • Summary

    As a child I liked that my sandwich on factory white bread only tasted of peanuts and butter, or Vegemite and cheese. It was cushioned in softness, and nothing but the filling showed though. These folded steamed buns, according to Fuschia Dunlop -author of Every Grain of Rice - are a little like Chinese 'lotus leaf buns' (he ye bing), they float the filling in a wrap that's all about texture. So in making them we break most artisan breadmaking rules. Use lots of yeast and warmth, some sugar, and a very short first rise to keep the texture fine.

    Ingredients

    • 300ml warm water, about 25C
    • 20g castor sugar
    • 50g rice or potato starch (available in Asian supermarkets)
    • one 7g sachet dry yeast
    • 450g white bread flour
    • flour and oil to finish
