Chinese bread dough is quite sweet compared with Western breads (the further south you go in China, the sweeter the dough becomes). Most Chinese breads are steamed, which is why they look pale and uncooked to the Western eye. This can be made plain or used for chinese buns (bao). The buns can be filled with a variety of fillings, such as custard, mung bean paste, or BBQed meat. Be creative!
