Jonathon Simon says:

+Seonkyoung Longest I dont think the baking powder is really necessary. it might give you a slightly more “chewy” dough, depending on the alkaline levels already in your local water, or it could actually be a problem for people that do have a high alkaline. I also dont think you really need a full tsp of yeast – 1/2 that will work beautifully. A tsp wont hurt anything, but i don’t think you’ll find it makes the final product any better. Have you ever experiemented – or have you always done those proportions?

Hello how did you make your mantou be white? Mine are yellow . Thank you

Kitusman theboss says:

Hi i made the dough according to the recipe but i didnt measure the yeast, and the dough is brown, is it because i put too much, or because or the quality of the yeast? i put wine vinager in the water of the steamer to try and make more white but it was not 🙁 any help to keep white? thank you !

Mannie Tam says:

I tried making this tonight in hopes of succeeding, so I can introduce it to a friend’s toddler with egg and milk allergies, he never had bread. I followed the steps, but I think my dough had too much flour because it didn’t look as soft, smooth and elastic as yours. that batch also tasted a bit saltier than I’m accustomed to in a man tau. made a second batch, but that one was too wet ( total fail ) and wouldn’t rise at all. any suggestions on what I should do???

George Chang says:

Greetings Seonkyoung: can  the dough be refrigerated and used at a later day? or do we have to use all the dough in the same day?  Thanks .
