Recipe's preparation

  1. Add water, yeast, sugar to bowl place lid on, turn your selector time to 2mins , temp 37° and speed 1.
    Add flour, xanthan gum, salt, olive oil, place lid on and select knead mode and knead for 5mins

    Transfer to Thermoserver and pop In a warm place to rise/prove for 1hr

    Divide dough Into 60gm balls, Using a rolling pin, roll out each ball to an oval disk.
    Brush the dough with oil and fold over (this will be your inside of the bao so will open after steamed) if you would like a pretty design on the top get a fork and make lines down the centre and diagonal to give it a fan look, or just leave plain.

    Next line your Varoma with the perforated sheets with holes in them, but if you don't have these you can either cut a small piece of baking paper to fit the bun on or oil/spray your varoma so they don't stick.

    Add 1000gm water to your bowl, ( i like to prewarm the water first but you can skip this step if you are short on time) leave measuring cup in and set for 10mins, speed 1 once finished your ready to steam your buns
    Remove measuring cup and place Varoma onto of bowl and set time 20mins, Varoma temp Speed 1

    Remove and fill with desired filling


To make baos black I added 1tsp squid ink to the dough mix before kneading

Thermomix Model

  • Appliance TM 6 image
    Recipe is created for
    TM 6
    For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.
