Today, I’m going to be showing Shokupan for beginners, with real-time hand kneading.

I have received so many questions about the consistency of the dough.

My Original Shokupan recipe contains 72% moisture, that is more amount than regular white bread recipe.

That’s the beauty of my Shokupan recipe, the more moisture in your bread, the more the bread fluffy.

But it is not that easy to knead, for beginners.

I reduced moisture in 65%, which I believe easy to handle, and still maintaining the signature texture of Shokupan, fluffy and moist.

Hope you will make your own delicious Shokupan much easier with this recipe!

~What is Shokupan?~

“Shokupan” is one of the staple Japanese bread that you can find at any grocery store.

The size is the same, but it comes in varieties of thickness.

Shokupan comes in 2 types of shape, one is square, and the other comes in the rounded top like a mountain. It called Yamashoku. Yama means mountain.

Squared one is more moist and dense compared to mountain shape because we bake it with the lid. The moisture stays in the dough. Mountain shape Shokupan is lighter in texture. Perfect for toast. It’s up to you which one to choose.
