Cocktail Bao 雞尾包

I remember the name of this bao scared my kids when they were young. "Mom, how can you eat a bun that has cocktail in it?" Many adults may be misled by its name as well. But I think if you are from Hong Kong, you know exactly what it is. Just like bo law bao/pineapple bun which has no pineapple, cocktail bao has no cock's tail in it.

Filling for 8-10 buns:
70g unsalted butter
30g sugar
20g unbleached all-purpose flour
20g milk powder
20g coconut, shredded, unsweeten

Mix all the ingredients together and form a log. Divide it into 8 equal parts and roll them into a log shape.

Recently I read an interesting Chinese article on bread. The title is 真假麵包. Click here to read.
