Mix ☆ ingredients into a bowl. Add pancake mix and mix well.
Add chocolate chips. Once it's mixed well, pour the batter into the foil cups about 60% full.
Heat the steamer. When it starts to steam, arrange the cups and steam for 12 minutes on low heat. It's done when the bamboo skewer inserted comes out clean.
This is how it looks like when you break the buns in half.
Story Behind this Recipe
I made this for my husband who loves steamed buns so much that he's made them himself.
Since this recipe doesn't use sugar, it's sweeter and tastier if you add plenty of chocolate chips!! Add 10 g of sugar if you are not adding chocolate chips. I was able to make 7 buns using a size 9 aluminum foil cup.
