HOW TO MAKE CREAM PAN | The Best Japanese sweet bread (EP266)

Today I’m gonna be making Cream Pan.

It’s the best sweet bread in Japan, filled with pastry cream.

The pastry cream is not too sweet or too rich but a little bit chewy than choux cream.

The bread though contains a lot of egg yolks and milk, it’s very moist and a little bit sweet it’s perfect match with the pastry cream.
