A quick and easy single Chinese bun that takes only a few minutes to make. I like to stuff mine with pork belly, but you can use whatever protein you like to fill yours.

  • 4 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp condensed milk
  • 3 tbsp skim milk


  1. Using a small whisk, mix all ingredients in a small bowl until batter is smooth. The batter will be thick.

  2. Line a small round plate with parchment paper. Pour batter into the center. Usually a spatula, carefully smooth out the batter so that it forms a circle 4 inches in diameter.

  3. Microwave for about 1 minute (see note). Add desired fillings and fold the round in half. Eat immediately.


The cooking time may vary depending on your microwave settings. My microwave is a 1000 watt and it took 1 minute to fully cook.
