Steamed Buns (Mantou)

1 tsp yeast
1 tsp plus 3 Tbs sugar
3 1/2 cups white flour

Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water. Mix sugar and flour
in bowl. Add yeast and 1 cup warm water to flour. Knead flour
for ten minutes. Let rise for 2 hours or until double in bulk.

Punch down and knead for a few minutes. Roll the dough on
a lightly floured board until you have a 12-inch roll. Divide
into 12 little balls. Cover and let rise for 45 minutes.

Line your bamboo steamer with cheesecloth and steam the buns for
15 minutes. Turn off the heat and let sit for 10 minutes.

If you're near a Chinese grocery, you can usually get frozen
mantou which taste pretty good. Also, for something different,
try adding a Tbs of instant coffee to the flour.
