Steamed bun, also called steamed bread, is a stable food many Chinese like to eat, especially in northern China. That is made by wheat flour and water, after fermentation, then steamed it. Well-made steamed bun is very fluffy and is of fragrant wheat smell and somewhat natural sweet.
Steamed bread can be made into many kinds of shapes, and semicircle bun is the most typical.
If filled with stuffing, called steamed stuffing bun. The stuffing can be meat, vegetable, sugar, or anything you like.
The two buns in the middle of the photo are filled with sugar, the one on the upper right is a steamed twisted roll, and the rest are four buns(each about 100 grams of weight). My wife made them yesterday, we eat buns almost everyday.

Hi Wei. I like the buns filled with lotus seed or blackbean. Nice presentation- I notice your wife isn't using the bamboo steam trays. Regards. Klaudio.

Hello z y,
This looks delicious. When I lived in Philadelphia, we used to go to Chinatown to enjoy these delicacies. Thanks for bringing back memories!

Nice, close-cropped shot, making the most of the interesting shapes and the metal steamer. Nice sharp image and interesting note.
