As you may have noticed, my Anpan look pretty different than those in the recipe. I found the bread to be quite elastic and it was hard to get it to hold together at the top. These turned out more like dinner rolls with bean filling in the upper portion, as opposed to pastry dough with a bean filling center. Both ways are delicious, but serve different purposes.
Also, be aware that the recipe calls for making a lot of extra bean filling. What can you do with it? Check back next week for another recipe idea.
Anpan was developed as a Japanese version of British jelly doughnuts. How cool is that?
