Fat- free Sweet Bread made possible

Within my three week getaway in Taiwan a month ago, I returned my English language skills to my teacher and started learning to read Traditional Chinese… the sacrifices I  make to bake! I read a couple of French dessert books, steamed buns and bread cookbooks and this is one of the recipes I got from one of the books I bought.

Its fat- free but has a substantial amount of sugar. To adapt it to my taste palette, I packed half of my buns with chocolate chips (not exactly fat free or healthy but whatever).  You can add anything you want. Its pretty versatile.
