Pumpkin Steamed Buns (南瓜包子)

Pin It Now!

I prefer pumpkin steamed bun instead plain one. Since my kids dislike having pumpkin on its own, adding inside steamed bun is a great way to get them eat. They like burger therefore I prepare these flower buns to go with homemade chicken patties. With this recipe you can shape them into mantou or any other shapes you prefer.

Hungry baby... can't wait!

Chicken Nuggets and Chicken Patties

Pin It Now!

My kids used to eat homemade loaf sandwich with butter and kaya. Lately they request savoury sandwich for change. The easiest way is use store bought tuna spread, ham or other similar canned food. I was thinking what to make to replace those processed food.
