The vegetarian recipe for Longevity Peach Bun:

servings – 12 buns


  • 5 cups wheat flour
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1/2 tbsp instant dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 12 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp liquid food color – pink (mix with some water)
  • 1/4 tsp liquid food color – green (mix with some water)


  • 1/2 cup sugar


  • Combine water, instant dry yeast and sugar; when the yeast and sugar dissolve, add wheat flour and vegetable oil.
  • Knead the dough until smooth and fine; then roll it into a long loaf and divide into 12 1/4 portions (1/4 portion for making leaves).
  • Flatten each portion into a round shape, place 1 tbsp peanut butter in the center, wrap up, gently form a peach shape, use the handle of a metal spoon to press a dent (to get a line) in the center and lay the bun onto a sheet of greaseproof paper; repeat.
  • Dip a toothbrush in pink food color liquid and use a metal spoon to spread the color onto the buns by running it along the brush.
  • Combine green food coloring with the smallest dough, divide into 24 portions, form leave shapes, mark leaf veins with the handle of a metal spoon and adhere the leaves to the base of the buns.
  • Bring water to a boil and steam the peach buns over high heat for about 10 minutes.
  • Serve.
