I did not get the exact measurement from that TV show, so I came out with my own recipe. This bun is very soft and also very yummy when you bite the sausage together with the bun, nice to have it with a cup of coffee.

Chinese sausage steamed buns
*makes 18 buns
(printable recipe)

3 Chinese sausages, cut one into 3pcs, soaked in hot water for 5mins, then halved, total get 18pcs

Dough ingredients
2 cups Hong Kong flour/All purpose flour
1 cup cake flour
1tsp yeast, mix with 1tbsp lukewarm water, set aside for 5mins
3tbsp corn oil
1 and 1/2 tbsp sugar
175ml water

Method
1. Mix all dough ingredients, knead the dough until it forms into an elastic and smooth ball, which takes about 10 minutes. The dough should not stick to your hands, and be quite stretchy. Set aside to rest for 60mins.
2. Divide dough into 18 small balls (weight about 35gm per ball)
3. Flatten it and put a piece of sausage and roll it up, set aside to rest for another 15mins.
4. Steam over high heat for 20mins.

Sonia, can I ask if the buns will be too salty in overall? I just have a feeling it might be...Thanks! They look really good, that I must say!

Yum! I really like pork buns in dim sum, but this sausage version is new to me. Let me grab some ;)

Looks soft and tasty. Chinese sausage has a distinctive flavour. I would use rolled bacon if I am making them cos I love the flavour.

Quinn, no, it just perfecct, the bun is quite plain actually and match with the salty/sweet sausage (remember cut to half), they are just nice and good.

the lacquer spoon, Thanks for your nice words.

busygran, Thanks for stopping by. ya, you can add your own preference filling.

I have never tried eating Chinese sausage as "whole" as this before. Usually, they are thinly sliced and fried with rice :p

hi sonia,
wat brand of cake flour did u useing to make this stim bun ya? i can't fine it... the tauke kedai tepung ask me back wat is cake flour n tell me his got many type flour to making cake.. or can i replace the cake flour to another flour? please ya...

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Hi Wong, sorry for my late reply, yes, you can steam it in few batches, i did the same way too.

Hi anonymous(what is your name?), I bought the cake flour from a bakery ingredients shop which they pack it loose, so i did not know the brand. Cake flour = Low protein flour/superfine flour, usually use it to make cake, cookie, pau or etc. You can replace it with pau flour or normal plain flour. Hope this help.

ohh...sory forget to let u know my sweet name 'color'. k sonia TQ very much, i will using superfine flour ya...


me,
color

I haven't really succeed in making chinese steam buns. Always have this hard dough after steaming. Yours looks great.
