Baked BBQ Pork Bun (aka Char Siew Bun) 叉烧餐包




These are extremely soft and tasty baked char siew bun. My all times favourite since I was a child. This homemade version tastes much better than store bought one because it's not too salty, just nice for the little one!




This time, I used Yoghurt Bread recipe because this was a last minute bake and I need the bread to stay soft for days. So I chose this 'never-turn-hard' bread recipe that never failed me. However, this bread taste better when it's warm, do heat up a little before consume.

    1 Onion (peeled and sliced)
