Aspiring Bakers #31 - Bao Ho-Chiak (May 2013) : Steamed Assorted Baos

No more buns left for breakfast. Once I saw this post from Peng's Kitchen, I got hooked up. Being a newbie and copycat, I followed exactly on the ingredients except for the filling. I had not only luncheon meat but hotdogs and azuki paste.

I'm submitting this post to Aspiring Bakers #31 - Bao Ho-Chiak (May 2013) hosted by Miss B of Everybody Eats Well in Flanders.

  •     200gm Hong Kong Flour
  •     1 tsp instant yeast

Aspiring Bakers #30 Round Up

hehe, so happy that I've joined in the fun with Aspiring Bakers! These are great people! Love it!

Here's the round up for April. Thanks Ladies for the hardwork of hosting, promoting, baking and rounding up!

Mee Hoon Kueh

Got this recipe from my baking frens (Pamela, Kymn and Lydia) in our baking group. Thanks gals for sharing the recipe and advises. It's a holiday, so it's time to cook breakfast. Being bored of preparing same old breakfast every week, i gave it a change since it's Labour day. When I told my boy that I'll be cooking mee hoon kueh for his breakfast, he agreed instead of giving me suprised look! Gosh, what a relief. So I prepared the dough the night before and kept them in fridge.
