User Rating 3.5 Star Rating (4 Reviews)


These are steamed cakes with seasoned ground pork filling.

Yield: 8 pieces


  • 2 1/2 cup flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2/3 - 3/4 cup milk
  • For Filling:
  • 4 oz. ground pork
  • 1 1/3 oz. boiled bamboo shoot, finely chopped
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ginger juice
  • 2 tsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil


Sift flour and baking powder together in a large bowl. Add sugar in the flour. Pour warm milk in the flour gradually. Knead the dough until it becomes as soft as ear lobes. Divide the dough into 8 balls. Set aside. Put ground pork, onion, bamboo shoot in a large bowl. Add with ginger juice, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, and sesame oil in the bowl. Mix well until the meat becomes sticky. Take a ball of dough and flatten by hands. Put a spoonful of meat filling in the center of the dough and wrap it by gathering the dough to the top. Repeat the process to make more pieces. Put each piece on a small sheet of parchment paper. Preheat a steamer on high heat. Place cakes in the steamer. Steam about 15 minutes, or until cooked through.
