Steamy Wow Buns

Wow.  Just wow.

I had to make carrot soup today since I'm not able to eat real food yet.  Len offered to make some type of bread too.  She sat down and found all these different steamed bread recipes.  Of course, none of them were quite right.  We picked through and chose the best of several and adapted them as we know what will work.  The result is really delicious.

I may invest in a bamboo steamer here but our makeshift one worked fine.  

2-1/2 teaspoons yeast
1/2 cup Plain Soymilk, heated to 110
1-1/2 cups GF baking mix
1 tablespoon shortening
2 tablespoons sugar

Mix the yeast and 1/2 cup baking mix in a medium bowl.  Add the hot Soymilk.  Whisk until dissolved and slightly foamy.

Melt the shortening and mix in the sugar.  Add to the yeast mixture with 3/4 cup baking mix.

Stir until a soft dough forms.  Cover and let rise for about 15 minutes. 

Shape into 8 rolls and flatten slightly.  Place in your steamer for 10 minutes.  See descriptions by photos.
