Bao means Buns so it is somehow odd that they are universally known as Bun Buns so to speak.

Bao Buns, pronounced “bow”, but also known as a ‘steamed buns’ or ‘baozi’ are a deliciously, warm, fluffy treat of filling wrapped inside a sweet, white dough. Made with a mix of flour, yeast, sugar, baking powder, milk and oil, the bao is a tad sweeter than its closely related cousin, the dumpling.

It is a type of filled bun or bread-like dumpling that originates from Chinese cuisine and can take on many different shapes, they can be eaten by themselves or more commonly filled with either a sweet or savoury filling.
