My kids love mi ku and I made this miku without the red colouring for breakfast. I thought that instead of buying chemically laden commercial bread, this would be a better and healthier choice. This miku is made from basic organic ingredients of wheat flour, butter, yeast, water and sugar.This miku taste delicious with butter and crispy roast pork.
After steaming.....a little 'mo peng' skin (uneven with small craters)! LOL!
Wheat Flour, 4 cups
Sugar, 1 cup
Butter, 3 tablespoons
Yeast (dried), 1 teaspoon full
Enought water for the dough
Mix all the ingredients except the water throughly. Slowly add water to make a soft dough. Knead the dought for around 10 to 20 minutes. Cover with towel and let it rise for around 2 hours. Make the dough into the desired shape. Proof for another 3 hours. Heat up steamer and put in the mi ku. Steam at high heat for 20 minutes.
