Mix the egg, vegetable oil, yogurt, and sugar together well.
Please adjust the amount of sugar according to the sweetness of your yogurt. It tastes better if you add a little sugar even if you're using sweetened yogurt.
This yogurt is my current favorite It's sweetened, and it tastes just right. When I make steamed bread with this yogurt, I usually add 1 tablespoon of sugar.
Add pancake mix into the mixture from Step 1. Mix with a rubber spatula, but don't knead.
Press in the dough from Step 4 into a mold to divide. Align in a large and flat frying pan.
Pour in approximately 1 cm of hot water and cover the pan. Steam for 12-14 minutes.
Once they become full and fluffy, they're done.
Note: You can use aluminum liners, silicone cups, and ramekins for the mold.
Note: Please use a steamer if you own one.
Note: If your pancake mix is 150 g per bag, then use 100 g of yogurt instead.

Story Behind this Recipe
I usually use milk to make plain steamed bread, but the result was too soggy when I added extra yogurt into that recipe. So, I tried using yogurt on its own instead of mixing it with milk.
To prevent the hot water splashing onto the bread, be extra careful with the amount of water you use. Also take care when you're removing it from the pan. You can prevent the hot water from dripping if you double the liners (or place muffin cups inside), in which case you'd only need to lift out the cups inside.
