My latest addiction is eating fried Mantou dipped in condensed milk. Mantou is very popular in China (currently studying here). I discovered that mantou has a lot of flavors….and my favorite…Chocolate!
I’ve seen the plain brown one..but this I need to find!
You can make your own mantou with this easy recipe:

——– ———— ——————————–
1 tablespoon yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 cups warm water
4 cups all-purpose flour
In a small bowl, sprinkle yeast and sugar over 4 tablespoons of the warm
water and leave it for 15 minutes. Place the flour in a bowl and make a well
in the center. Pour in the yeast mixture and the remaining water. Mix
everything to a dough. Turn it onto a floured board and knead until smooth.
Return dough to the bowl, cover and let it stand in a warm place for about
an hour or until doubled in size. Punch down, cover again and let it stand
for 20 minutes longer.
Knead the dough again and shape into rolls. Bring the water in the bottom of
a steamer to a boil. Place the rolls in the steamer, leaving a 1- inch gap
between them. Cook for 10 minutes, or until firm and cooked through. Serve
