    Bergy's Note:

    This recipe is from the "Complete Asian Cookbook" I have not tried this recipe as stated but have posted it by request ( I am not even sure if I can buy sweetened canned bean paste here). However the dough is what I use for other steamed Buns and will refer back to this recipe when I post other fillings

      My friend and I always go to Chinese bakeries when we travel and we always get "Bean Muffins" it was in honor of this that I attempted this recipe. They didn't turn out quite right, which I will not blame on the recipe, but on the Sweet Bean Paste. The dough is terrific.

      This dough worked out great, but according to my Taiwanese MIL this type of dough should be filled with meat. I agree with her as I've had these buns with meat filling and had bean paste in a much lighter and fluffyer bun. All in all though, these worked out exactly as they should have and I will use the recipe a lot since said MIL has a hard time teaching me to cook Taiwanese food :) Thanks for posting!
