The bread Baking Babes are doing an international tour.
Last month it was the Philippines; this month we head to China for Steamed Bao Buns.
Karen, of Karen’s Kitchen Stories and our host kitchen for the month chose these soft, puffy, cloud-like dim sum breads.
As usual, the Babes all put their own spin on both the buns and the filling.
Traditionally, they would be filled with Chinese Barbecued Pork and pickled vegetables.
The Babes used everything from pork to chicken to avocados to Brussels sprouts.
Babes are nothing if not creative…
All of the baking Babes, or, in this case, steaming Babes were most pleased with their respective efforts.
And they especially liked how very, very easy it was to make the buns

Even though I wasn’t unpleased, I can’t say that I was most pleased. The buns I made were brown. Not that there’s anything wrong with brown. Except that it’s brown.
I’m curious; how long did you spend trying to come up with a synonym for “steam” that began with B?
You know me too well…. Let’s just say I searched long enough to realize it was futile, but less than an hour lol
I like brown.
I like brown too. But beige, not so much.
(I probably searched about as long as you. The closest I came was “boiled” and that’s just not right, is it?)
Okay, I’m with you on the beige,,,, a color I try to avoid.
I toyed with ‘barely boiled’ but it still wasn’t right.
Considering how much it smelled like wonder bread to me, I am toying with the idea of being super unconventional and trying out one for my kiddo’s lunch as a Dim sum PBJ!
Oh I like that idea… Your kid could be so cool lol
