Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

IMG_7278– i halved the recipe and made 5 hippo buns, each 55g
我做了食谱半份 ~ 做了5个河马餐包,各55克

– to shape hippo

IMG_7263first, divide dough into 55g each

IMG_7264divide into 2 small portions, one medium portion, and one big portion
面团再次分割成4份 ~ 两个小份、一份中份、另一份大份

IMG_7265roll medium portion into a flat oval shape, and shape the biggest portion into a horizontal oval shape

IMG_7266place big portion over the flat dough. this becomes the hippo’s head

IMG_7267flatten the two small portions of dough into round disc, and make a cut in the middle. then make a twist
两份小面团擀平、切开然后交错 (如上)

IMG_7269place the small portions behind the face

IMG_7270place sesame seeds as eyes, and chocolate chips (use normal size, and not mini chocolate chips) as nostrils

IMG_7271brush egg wash

IMG_7272use the back of a knife to score hippo’s mouth
