2-in-1. Abit too much on carbo, but I love it. Thanks for the recipe!!

I wonder who finish all your bakes everyday. They look so yummy, I would love to bake them too but my family is so small (just me, my hb and my young son), can't finish the food unless we have them for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks...heeheehee

Hi Aunty,
Thanks for the recipe :) I've researched some of the Pau recipe. Most uses all-purpose flour, while you use Hong Kong Flour? What is the difference? Is it the colour of the pau?

Hi Alice,

Hong Kong flour makes the pau softer and more white than plain flour.

Hi Aunty Yochana,

I love to try making this pau but
I don't know what hongkong flour is, does the packaging indicates hongkong flour, is there any substitute for it? Thanks a lot.

Hi Joy,

It's Pau flour, any superfine flour will do.
