Steamed wholemeal pumpkin bun

600g plain flour
300g wholemeal flour
250g pumpkin ( steamed and mashed)
300g brown sugar
5 tsp dried yeast
350 ml warm water
5 tbsp olive oil
30pcs white square paper

1. Put all the ingredients (except water) into a mixing bowl. Add in water bit by bit and knead dough slowly until smooth.

2. Cover with a piece of damp cloth and set aside for 1 1/2 hours.
3. When the dough rises to double the size, punch out the air with knuckles.
4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 1 minute.
5. Cut into 30 portions and lightly roll each portion into round shape and place it on the white square paper.
6. Arrange the buns in the steamer with gaps in between as they will expand further during steaming. Set aside for about another 10-15 minutes for them to rise.
7. Steam for 15-20 minutes.

8. Release the cover of steamer slightly for a while before taking out the steamed buns. Do not leave the buns in steamer for too long as the water condensed from the cover will drip onto the buns.
