Number of Servings: 24


    1 packet Red Star Active Dry Yeast
    3 tbsp lukewarm water
    2 cups lukewarm water
    1 tbsp canola oil
    .25 cup granulated sugar
    .75 tsp salt
    6 cups white flour


Sprinkle 3 tbsp water over the yeast and allow to soften. Add remaining water, sugar, oil, and salt.
Put all 6 cups of flour in a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment. With mixer on low speed slowly incorporate water mixture to flour. It will be wet. Leave the mixer to knead the dough for about 6 minutes or until the dough is soft.
Remove from bowl. Wash bowl and spray with non-stick spray. Place dough back in bowl and turn to cover with oil. Cover with plastic wrap and place somewhere warm for one hour (dough should double in size). At this point dough can be stored in the refrigerator for up to six hours.
Punch down dough and separate into 24 evenly sized balls. Let balls rest at least 5 minutes before filling with your choice of filling. (I have published a tofu char-siu and a pumpkin filling with instructions for finishing)
Allow filled buns to rise again before steaming for 10-15 minutes.

Number of Servings: 24
