Hints and tips

  • The bun recipe can be doubled without the dough being compromised; cooked buns can then be frozen for future use. Freeze in an airtight container and store for up to 3 months.
  • If the buns have been frozen, re-heat on a perforated steam tray lined with baking paper and steam at 100˚C for 1 minute.
  • Multiple variations of filling can be used for this recipe such as pulled pork, chicken or lamb.
