Hokkaido miso pan recipe?

My sister talks about a cake she had in Hokkaido in the 1980's-Hokkaido miso pan. Does anyone have a recipe or any info? Thanks.

  1. Miso pan? Never heard of it. There is the famous Hokkaido Milk Pan, which is most excellent. The classic place to get it is Mont Thabor bakery in Azabu Juban.

      Thanks Uncle Yabai, maybe that's it? I need to find the recipe for Hokkaido milk pan!
      ( not miso)

    2. There is a bakery in Shimo-kitazawa in Tokyo called Angelica and they are very well-known for miso pan- small round bread rolls with a consistency and taste similar to challah and with a slight crunch on top. Was just there last week. As good as ever. But they are not cake and only slightly sweet.

        Silverjay, I think that is it, I just asked her & it was miso not milk pan. I wonder if there are any recipes posted on the web?

          Here it is in Japanese. You can play around in translation software if you can't read it...

          Edit- actually that is for a similar thing called miso-melon pan. But it's not like melon taste, more like a style of bread, and will probably come close to the original.

            Thanks! Will try to find recipe & post if successful.

      2. My mother-in-la-w knew immediately what you were talking about, but she didn't think it was limited to Hokkaido. It looks like there are at least three kinds -- a steamed mushi-pan, a koppe-pan which is kind of British-biscuity (but not really), and a "kashi-pan."

        I think the first step is to paste this into google, click on images, and find out which type it is. 味噌パン

        味噌パンレシピ will get you pictures that I assume will be mostly miso-pan recipes. There are some really yummy-looking ones. *maybe* google translate would help you with the recipe, but remember that Japanese recipes are usually measured in weight, not volume, and the weight will also be in metric measurements.

        This one looks really lovely, but I'm pretty sure it's not what your sister remembers . . . . (no recipe, either, that I see)

          Thanks MickiYam. I'll ask my sister if this is what she remembers & try baking soon.
          this could be it!

          1/2 teaspoon baking powder
          1 egg
          3 tablespoons honey
          2 tablespoons miso
          soy milk 100ml

          bake in toaster oven.
