Pumpkin Pau with pumpkin filling



I made these pumpkin pao specially for baby Ian, who likes them.



Most importantly, they are very easy to prepare. But for me, I made them when baby was asleep.




Recipe (Adapted from healthy food for baby page)

300g pau flour ( I used plain flour to substitue)
5g instant yeast
5g baking powder
90g sugar
50g formula milk
25g butter
100g pumpkin puree (blend until smooth)

Add all the dry ingredients and mix well. Add in the wet ingredients except butter and knead into a dough. Add in butter and knead into smooth dough. (It is slight sticky but do not add any flour) Proof the dough for 60mins. Knead air out and divide each of 45g each, shaped into balls. Flatten and put the pumpkin filling (or any of your preferred filling) and wrap it. Steam at medium heat for 15mins. Once done, rest for 5mins before open the lids (to prevent water from getting into the pau).

Pumpkin paste

250g pumpkin (Steamed and blended)
20g sugar
1 tsp cornstarch
2tbsp of formula milk (add more if dry)

Cook and stir until the mixture thicken. Chill in the fridge for 30mins to use.
