蒸锅盖儿裹上布,将水烧至沸腾。摆入馒头,将火候转为中小火,蒸 10分钟。时间到后,让馒头在蒸锅里继续静置 2分钟后才开盖儿

Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

IMG_9060– please add water according to the water absorption capability of your flour. you may want to start off with 185ml, then add as you go. you should get a dense dough that has no crackly lines and NOT a super soft dough. if you have a super soft dough, the impressions of the “hemp rope” will not be distinct after proofing and steaming
水份请视自家面粉吸水量以定。建议您先以 185毫升牛奶加入,之后以和面状态再定是否需多加牛奶。主要和面后,面团不可太过干燥或出现裂痕。面团也不该属特软性质。如面团太软,编织的辫子在发酵和蒸煮后,花纹就会因湿度高而消失哈
