A peachy Mother’s day‏

A longevity peach, or shoutao is typically a steamed lotus seed bun that is white with a red dyed tip and a crease in the middle that mimics the shape of a peach. In the Chinese tradition the longevity peach represents Peaches of Immortality that grant humans immortality when consumed hence this is why the longevity peach is typically served at birthday banquets to attendees. For mother day’s Bao Dim Sin Seng have launched a series of longevity peach buns!!!

There is the golden peach series and a traditional series. 
 The golden series has custard and egg yolk filling while the other has traditional lotus paste filling. Golden series:

Traditional series:

Personally, I like the golden peach series because of the filling and The Queen Mother set has a crown for fun and looks great on pictures (see product shot)! 
Golden longevity peaches ($30 for pair of $16 each) 金桃 (1對)

The first in the golden peach series is the custard golden peach which has custard and egg yolk in the middle. ******************** 
Surrounded by peaches 桃李滿門 ($42)

The second golden peach is surrounded by smaller peaches that are filled with lotus paste or red bean with a custard golden peach bun. 
Queen Mother! $98 女皇媽媽

The last is my favourite because it is meaningful. It is a big bun that hides a bun filled with egg yolk and lotus paste and 6 mini buns filled with lotus paste or red bean paste.

There are four different greetings for the bun such as Beautiful mum, Fat Mum etc and there is a crown for fun.

To conclude, the Queen Mother set and the 桃李滿門 are fun to share. 
Personally I liked the custard filling because it was fragrant and not too sweet encased in a delicious fluffy bun.
