Pineapple Bun Recipe

Recipe By Slurrp

Pineapple buns are traditional pastries found in Hong Kong bakeries. The bun is soft and slightly sweet, with a golden crispy, crumbly crust on top. The ingredients for this pineapple bun recipe may be found in any grocery shop. Pineapple buns are one of the most popular Chinese bakery pastries. Pineapple buns, which are said to have originated in Shanghai, have become popular in Hong Kong and Chinatowns all over the world. The name stems from how the topping looks when cooked, not from the presence of pineapple in the dough. The Chinese sweet soft bread had long existed as it was traditionally steamed, according to a rough history of the pineapple buns. Locals sought a western-style bun as a result of Western influence, particularly the presence of Portuguese in Macau and British in Hong Kong. They wanted to make their own sort of afternoon tea by pairing something with milk tea.
