How to make ★Cream Pan★Japanese Bread Series Part2! (EP135)

Today, I’m going to be making “Cream Pan.”

One of the most famous Japanese sweet bread loved by all generations.

The traditional recipe is, wrap thick custard cream in sweet dough and bake.

But in this recipe, bake fluffy sweet bread first, and fill with light custard later on.

This style is the latest trend you can find at a department store.

When you open the moist bread, the vanilla custard flows over, and when you take a bite, it’s like heaven!
