IMG_6021taking a brief break from the CNY goodies baking today because i need to clear out my fridge… ₍₍ ◝(・ω・)◟ ⁾⁾

Recipe adapted and translated from Qi Qi in the House

Ingredients/食材 (makes six 60g buns)

IMG_6018180g hong kong flour (all purpose flour is fine)
20g wholemeal flour
3g instant dry yeast
pinch of salt
100g fresh milk
35g caster sugar
1tbsp lard

3/4 tsp double action baking powder

Filling
240g red bean filling (divided into 6 portions of 40g)

水仙粉 180g(亦可用中筋面粉)
全麦面粉 20g
速溶酵母 3g
盐 一小撮
鲜奶 100g
细糖 35g
白油 1 tbsp

双倍发粉 1/2tsp+1/4tsp
馅料:
豆沙 240g

Directions

IMG_6020- mix all ingredients (EXCEPT BAKING POWDER) and knead for 8-10 mins till you get a soft and non-sticky dough
所有材料(除双倍发粉外)混合拌匀,搓揉8-10分钟成光滑不黏手面团

- allow to proof in room temperature till double in size (around 1 hour)
室温发酵1小时至双倍大

- mix baking powder with 1 tsp of water and dissolve. add it to the above dough and knead till well incorporated
双倍发粉用1小匙水调匀,加入面团中再度拌匀至光滑

- rest dough for 15 mins
休面15分钟

- divide dough to 6 equal portions (60g each) , shape into a ball and roll into a disc. place filling and seal seams
将面团分割为6份/60g 一个,滚圆;杆开,包入40g馅料

- place buns into steamer and allow to proof for 45 mins
排入蒸炉,再度发酵45分钟

- steam buns on medium-high heat for 15 mins
中大火蒸15分钟

- once time is up, do not open lid immediately. allow buns to sit in it for a while as a rush of cold air will cause the bun to wrinkle
时间到即熄火,但别马上打开锅盖,热腾腾的包子与炉外的冷空气猛然接触,会让包子变皱

Personal notes:

IMG_6016- i halved the recipe and make six 30g buns
我将食谱减半,做了6个30克的包子

- shape cat according to following diagrams after placing filling and sealing seams
裹入馅料后,请参考以下肥猫包子整形图解

NA201401061531320067-02-091000000punch a dimple on both sides of the dough
裹入馅料的面团收口,封口朝下。面团顶部两侧捅个小孔

NA201401061531570090-02-091000000“affix” pinchful of dough into the dimples and make impressions on the ear with fondant modelling tools
随意捏点剩余的面团,整形成🐱耳朵,插入小孔,再用翻糖模具在耳朵上压上条纹

NA201401061532230045-02-091000000next, use the base of a large piping tip to make quarter circles as impressions for the eyes
运用一个大型裱花嘴的底部,在面团上轻微压上四分之一圆形。这就形成了猫咪的笑眼

NA201401061532420026-02-091000000this is what you should get
此时的猫咪应该是这个样子滴

NA201401061533090086-02-091000000make a small dent on the face
笑眼中间部位压个小孔

NA201401061533320036-02-091000000… and place a red bean on the dent. this will form the nose. i’d have used azuki bean instead of raw red bean but i ran out of it
在放上一颗红豆。也可用蜜红豆

NA201401061533540038-02-091000000finally, draw expressions with cocoa batter (mix egg yolk with a tsp of cocoa powder) using a toothpick
最后,用牙签粘上可可浆 (打散一颗蛋黄,在混入一小匙可可粉拌匀即可),画上猫咪的嘴巴和胡须
