Desiccated Coconut Steamed Bun/ Straight Dough Method

Pin It Now!

I saw some desiccated coconut in my freezer. In order to clear I decide to use it as steamed buns filling. Another great recipe of stemed bun pastry I found and this time is from ReeseKitchen. Do drop by her blog for more interesting fillings!

4g instant yeast
160g water

280g pau flour or low protein flour
120g cornflour
80g sugar
40g shortening (I used vegetable oil)

10g double action baking powder

~ Filling
Fresh desiccated Coconut
Pinch of salt
* Put all into a pan and cook till all the sugar dissolved. Set aside to cool.

1. Mix (A) together in a kneading bowl. Then add in (B) and knead to form dough. Covered and leave to rest for 1 hour and 30 minutes.

2. Mix in (C) and knead (by hand) gently till well combine (careful don't over knead) then cover and rest for another 15 minutes.

3. Divide dough into 50g each and wrapped in fillings. Please refer here for method of shaping and wrapping.

4. Place on parchment paper and leave to rest for 15-20 minutes. Bring water to boil and steam at high heat for 10 minutes.

5. Once the steaming time is over, off the heat. Leave the buns inside the steamer about 1 minute before open the lid.


  1. Your steamed buns always look incredibly delicious. Kudos!
    Hope you're enjoying your evening.

  2. that would be a great steam bun

  3. I love coconut buns, have not eaten it in ages. I have not tried coconut filling in steamed buns before, it has always been the baked ones! Looks lovely!
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Certainly, any food, cake, drinks flavoured or with coconuts, especially Desiccated coconut - my all time favourite in cooking and baking.
