    Steamed Sultana Buns

    When I was a child, my family’s breakfast was ‘Toast & Hot Drink’, not ‘Miso Soup & Rice’. When we were out of bread, my mother made steamed buns for us. Sometimes she made pancakes, but it seemed steamed buns were the easiest to make for her. She often made ‘Raisin Buns’. I make them …

    Azuki & Cream Brioche

    Store-bought ‘Tsubu-an’, sweet Azuki paste, is too sweet for me. I make the Azuki paste at home because it is easy to make and tastes better. With the home made Azuki paste, I tend to make ‘Dorayaki’, but today I made these delicious sweet rolls. Simply fill Brioche Rolls with Azuki paste and whipped cream. …

    Focaccia With Cheese Inside

    I love my ‘1-Hour Focaccia’ recipe. When I am not in a hurry, I don’t add Baking Powder to the dough. On the other day, when I was about to make Cheesy Focaccia using the recipe, I decided to sandwich the cheese instead of topping it on the bread, so that I could cook it …
