These Chinese sausage steamed buns are awesome. Rich sausage wrapped in a tender soft pastry and steamed to juicy perfection are what memories are made of.
Ingredients
  • 1 Cup Self-raising flour
  • 10ml Baking powder
  • 10ml Caster sugar
  • 15g Softened butter
  • 75ml Warm milk
  • 64cm of Chinese sausage
  • Roasted sesame oil
Instructions
  1. Place the self raising flour, baking powder and caster sugar in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add the softened butter and rub this into the flour thoroughly until the flour resembles bread crumbs.
  3. Pour in the warm milk and mix this using a wooden paddle until all of the milk has been absorbed into the flour.
  4. Get in there with your hands and start compressing the dough until you have a complete ball of dough and all of the loose bits are incorporated.
  5. Turn the dough out and knead it on your work surface for 2 minutes.
  6. Wrap the dough in cling wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  7. In the meantime, cut the sausage into 4cm lengths, or just less than 2 inches. If you can't find Chinese sausage, you can substitute this with a cured Italian sausage like Cabanossi.
  8. In addition cut 16 squares of baking parchment.
  9. Unwrap the dough and roll it into a sausage shape. Cut the dough into 16 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a snake of about 12 cm long, or 5 inches.
  10. Roll each snake of dough in a spiral around each piece of sausage. Place each one on a piece of parchment and transfer them to your steamer. You will need to use both tiers of your steamer, or steam 2 batches.
  11. Place the steamer over a wok of rapidly boiling water and steam the buns for 15 minutes.
  12. Remove the steamer from the heat and transfer the buns to serving platters. Brush the buns with roasted sesame oil and serve immediately.
