加入牛奶、筛入面粉。轻轻搅拌

– add in butter and mix well. sieve mixture again
最后加入黄油、再次拌匀。蛋糊再次过筛

– warm custard mixture over a pot of simmering water for 10 mins, stirring every 2 min interval. The mixture will come together into a soft dough
卡仕达酱隔热水加热约10分钟,中间每两分钟不停搅拌知道蛋糊浓稠并离锅

– remove from heat and place a cling wrap on top of custard. cool completely
离火、并在卡仕达上摆上保鲜膜。代冷却备用

– prepare bao dough ~ mix all dough ingredients together and knead till you get a soft dough. colour 2 portions of 20g original dough with red yeast powder and matcha powder respectively; and a small pinch of original dough with cocoa powder. set aside for 15 mins
准备面团~所有食材混合,搓揉至面团不粘手。取出两份20克面团:一份筛入红曲粉、一份筛入绿茶粉。搓匀。在从原面团捏出一点面团,筛入可可粉、搓匀。三份面团静置15分钟

– divide dough into appropriate portions of 10g (for head) and 25g (for body); and custard into 13g per portion. Refrigerate remaining un-used custard
原面团分割成10克(头)和25克(身体)等份;卡仕达分割成13克一份。剩余卡仕达可冷藏

– wrap each filling into a piece of body portion. seal seams and place head on top of body
取一份身体面团,裹入一份馅料。封口捏紧,再将头部到身子上

– snowman’s scarf: roll a portion of red and green coloured dough flat and cut into strips. twirl a piece of red and green together and wrap lightly around snowman’s neck
雪人围巾:取一小份红色、绿色面团,擀平,切成条状。将一条红色和绿色面条卷在一起,轻轻围绕着雪人颈部

– cut out buttons using the tip of piping tips and fix on snowman’s body
使用小形裱花嘴切出纽扣,并沾到雪人身子上

– roll out cocoa dough flat, and use a small round tip to cut out snowman’s nose. affix to the face
可可面团擀平,用形裱花嘴切出小圆形当鼻子。沾到雪人脸部

– dot eyes (using toothpick) with egg wash mixed with dark cocoa powder. consistency of this should be slightly “gluely”. you can also dot button holes onto the buttons
蛋液里加入一点黑可可粉、拌匀。用竹签沾上可可蛋糊,在雪人脸部点上眼睛。蛋糊应该有点浓稠性。您也可在纽扣点上小孔

– hat: pinch a bit of red or green dough, and shape it into a cone shape. coat the sides with desiccated coconut. place hat onto snowman’s head and gently press the sides down using a toothpick (this helps to firm the hat to the head better)
帽子:捏出一点红或绿色面团,搓成圆锥形。沾上一点干椰丝,并把帽子摆放在雪人头部。用竹签轻轻在帽子边缘压下已固定帽子

– bring a pot of water to boil on high heat, and then turn to medium heat. place buns in and steam for 7 mins
蒸锅里加入水,烧开后转换中火。放入包子蒸7分钟

– after 7 mins is up, do not open the lid immediately. allow bun to sit in it for a couple of mins before serving buns
7分钟后,千万不可马上开盖儿。代几分钟后再开哈

Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

snowman steam custard bun– do not steam these buns on high heat because this will cause your snowman to “huat ah!”
包子可别以大火蒸煮,要不然雪人会“发”哈

– do remember to also wrap the lid with a cloth so the water droplets do not drop on your baos
蒸锅盖儿记得裹上布,以避免水蒸气滴到包子上影响美观

– there is no need to further proof the buns after shaping as it would have proofed by the time you complete decorating everything
整形后的包子无需在发酵因为整形后,包子都发得七七八八了

– feel free to “downsize” the dough but you may need to add a few more tbsp of coconut milk depending on the thickness of the coconut milk you are using
食谱可随意减量,不过以个人使用的椰浆浓稠度而定,需适量加入椰浆以便和面

– please do not attempt to shape too high a hat as it will easily topple your snowman during steaming process
帽子可别弄得太高因为这样会导致雪人在蒸煮过程中塔下哈

snowman steam custard buni must peer-pressure you into trying this bun… it is soo soo good… p(*^-^*)q
