You don’t even need an oven to make the simplest homemade bread (steamed Chinese buns)
These simple Chinese buns are steamed, giving them a distinctive fluffy softness. Eat them on their own or as a side dish to take the place of steamed rice. In my family, we tear them open to slather with butter and sprinkle with pork floss for a savory breakfast or drizzle with sweetened condensed milk for a sweet treat. You can also use the dough as the base for fillings to steam into bao or knead in seasonings such as sliced scallions or sesame seeds.
