    Brioche in Syrup with Lemon Cream

    When I was a uni student, there was a small cake shop next to the supermarket where I always bought my groceries. The cake shop was full of pretty sweets and cakes, but one rather plain looking cake was attracting my attention. It was actually ‘Brioche à Tête’ soaked in syrup and capped with whipped …

    Basic Brioche

    This is one of my old recipes and I used to call this bread ‘Egg Bread’. Now I call it ‘Brioche’ because it is almost identical to a Brioche recipe that I recently discovered and it sounds nicer. You can bake whole in a loaf tin, or divide to make rolls. This time I baked …

    Basic White Bread

    I used to wake up in the morning, in the house that was filled with the lovely smell of baking bread thanks to my bread-baking machine. I don’t have the machine any more and I bake bread using the oven. But this ‘Basic White Bread’ recipe is always same. For the machine, I had to …

    ‘Nikuman’ is the Japanese name for the steamed pork buns made from flour pastry and filled with pork mince and vegetable mixture. ‘Nikuman’ can be made quite easily at home.

    Potato Flat Bread

    A few days ago, I tried ‘Savoury Potato Pancake’ recipe that I found on a Japanese cooking site. I would not approve the recipe. The grated raw potato has an unpleasant smell and the cooked potato pancakes still have the smell. You got to get rid of the smell. Then I started trying to make …

    1-Hour Focaccia

    When I was cooking ‘Chicken Cream Stew’ for dinner one day, I was regretful that I hadn’t bought a nice crusty bread. I still had 50 minutes until dinner time, so I started making bread. I had heard about microwave enforced proofing for quick bread making. I made 4 bread rolls that evening. The bread …
