Anpan and melon bread hybrid. I tried Yamazaki Baking's sweet bun "A lot of melon bread" that I found at the supermarket.
Plenty of melon bread
Melon bread with a refreshing biscuit dough filled with a generous amount of red bean paste. It was sold as a new product at a supermarket, and the price was 127 yen (tax included).
The shape is a little tall, and it is a cylinder rather than a dome. It feels heavy when you pick it up, but it's a little small for a bag of melon bread.
The surface is crispy, sweet and fragrant, and the inside is fluffy. The dough part is standard melon bread. The cookie dough is a little thin.
And there are plenty of bean paste inside! It is a large category even if it is anpan. The smooth and hard-cooked small beans are a nice accent.
Regarding the compatibility between the melon bread part and the bean paste ... To be honest, "it doesn't really match, but it doesn't feel strange." There is no surprising harmony, but the goodness is not compromised. Speaking of which, even people who say, "I'm not good at ordinary melon bread because it feels dry," may be able to eat it moist and delicious thanks to the bean paste.
However, I'm glad that I got the feeling that I can enjoy two delicious foods with one! It has a satisfying sweetness, and one calorie is 442 kcal. If you get lost with melon bread, why not pick it up?
