Homemade steamed bun (attempt #1)

I fell in love with steamed buns, and recently attempted to make my first batch. The filling was good, but the only thing I have to improve is the bun. It came out nicely for the eyes, but too thick and not soft enough for the taste.

Before steaming:

After steaming:

DH laughed when we cut the minced pork filling I wrapped. See how thick it is at the top:

Then we cut the red bean bun that he wrapped. It doesn't look any better: it's super thick at the bottom. It was my turn to laugh, but I didn't, hehe.

That will be a challenge for me for the upcoming batch(es): a soft steamed dough.
