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.
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.

Here it is in Japanese. You can play around in translation software if you can't read it... http://allabout.co.jp/gm/gc/385190/
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.
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 . . . . http://blog.goo.ne.jp/from-my-kitchen... (no recipe, either, that I see)
