I have recently discovered steamed buns (Chai Bau) and I have scoured the internet looking for recipes that I can use to make them at home; however, every recipe I found required a Wok with a steam plate which is something I do not own. Then I discovered this recipe which does not require a Wok but can be done in a dutch oven instead if desired/needed it also does not require yeast.
I discovered this recipe online and knowing how much I love Swedish Fish and how much everyone else I know loves them I thought I would share it just in case. I don't know how many fish this recipe will make so my serving size is a guess so is my prep time for that matter as I have not yet made this recipe.
This tastes just like apple pie. I was amazed to discover it even has a hint of crust flavor to it also! You can add more everclear or vodka if you like to make it stronger, but I like it just the way it is. I got the recipe from a new friend I made while on vacation recently. Make sure you use glass bottles. The drink ferments weird and seems to degrade plastic ones! The serving size and yield are approximate.
When ever I serve this dish I get rave reviews. My grandma used to make this for our holiday meals; it was the only thing that NEVER had leftovers. When most people hear the ingredients. they are often skeptical until they try it. So far it has won over everyone that has tried it. It is so simple to make that you can have it any night. Prep time is time to combine items and cook time is time to chill. Servings are approx.
The directions for this are the same as my favorite box mix, so I have to give it a try. I found it on bettycrocker.com. It is a Bisquick heart smart recipe, but I think that you can substitute regular ingredients if you want. The recipe originally said 16 bars, but I never got that many. The cooking time is actually 1hr. 50 minutes and it is also total time start to finish
