Baking powder+white sugar
If youIf you don’t have baking powder at home, you can add some sugar.
As long as you add 1 to 2 spoons of sugar when melting the baking powder, you can also make the dough better ferment, because yeast fermentation requires sugar to provide energy.
Warm water fermentation
Many people choose to use cold water to make noodles. In fact, this method is wrong. It is not easy to make noodles with cold water. Correct The method is to use warm water to mix the noodles, but the water temperature cannot exceed 40°C.
Because if the water temperature is too high, the baking powder will lose its activity, which will affect the dough fermentation. Too low water temperature is not conducive to yeast fermentation, so warm water is most suitable.
Select gluten flour
Flour is also divided into many types, high-gluten flour, medium-gluten flour, low-gluten flour...steamed buns are generally selected Gluten flour is just plain flour for making dumplings.
Add some oil to the noodles

Moreover, the wrapped buns must be placed in a closed place for the second proofing and then steamed in the pot. The time can be kept at about half an hour. This is very important.
Because, when the dough is rolled, a part of the air in the dough is released, and the second proofing can make the buns fuller.
Cold water pot
Many people steam bunsIn order to save time, just steam it with hot water. In fact, this is wrong. You should use cold water to steam the buns.
