Cut out 10 square pieces parchment paper approximately 4" in diameter. Set aside.
In a large stand mixer bowl fitted with a dough hook, combine yeast, sugar, and warm milk. Leave to proof.
When the yeast has been activated (bubbly), add in flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and oil.
Turn on the mixer and knead dough for 8-10 minutes on low speed, until the dough is nice and elastic. Add a little flour or water at a time depending if it's too sticky or too dry.
Turn out dough onto an oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap and leave in a warm place to double in size (about 90 minutes).
Once dough has risen, gently deflate and move it over to a board dusted with some flour.
Taking the dough, roll into a log and cut into 10 pieces, each piece roughly 50g.
Shape each piece into a ball and flatten out into an oval shape using a rolling pin.
Brush the top of the dough with a little oil and fold in half.
Lay the dough onto the prepared parchment paper. Repeat with the remaining dough.
Lightly cover and rest for about 30 minutes, until slightly puffy.
Heat water in a large bamboo steamer over high heat. When buns are ready to be steamed, arrange the buns into the steamer and steam for 10-12 minutes, until puffy.
Turn off the heat and wait for 5 minutes before carefully removing the buns from the steamer.
