Sweet Corn Mantou (steamed buns) 甜粟米馒头

My daughter requested some plain mantou (steamed buns) as she prefer raw and plain steamed buns rather than with filling like normal baozi. Anyway, i didn't make the very raw mantau without any flavours, instead i added some sweet corn cream into it as inspired from a similar sweet corn baozi that i tasted earlier.

Making mantou is easy as you don't need to proof for too long..

recently i used the Bonuslink points to redeem this two tier steamer, i can steam all mantou at one go ^_^

Raw and plain mantou, just eating like that also good, with a cup of coffee, perfect!

I feel the corn taste is not strong enough, if you like to try this recipe, you can increase sweet corn cream a bit and reduce milk at the same time.

Sweet Corn Mantou (steamed buns) 甜粟米馒头
*makes around 16 buns

500g plain flour or all purpose flour
1 and 1/2tsp instant yeast
50g caster sugar
1/4tsp fine salt
25g corn oil
170g fresh milk
150g sweet corn cream style ( I use Ayam brand)

1.      Blend sweet corn cream style with milk. Then mix it with the rest of the ingredients in a mixing bowl, combine and knead till smooth dough. Set aside to rest for 5mins.
2.      Divide the dough into two portions. Use a rolling pin, roll out the dough into rectangular shape. Then roll up the dough like a swiss roll, slightly roll on countertop to tighten it.
3.      Cut in small piece (7-8 pcs per dough) and put on the wax paper. Place them in the steamer and proof for 15mins.
4.      Steam on medium fire for 15mins (from the time water started to boil)

Rachel, yes don't need to proof like making bao, because mantou texture should be slightly on rough side unlike bao have to have soft and fluffy texture.

Hi Sonia,
Do I need to use lukewarm water to mix the yeast and sugar?

Lisa,when you use instant active yeast, this normal step of mixing lukewarm water with yeast and sugar is not necessary.
