Anpan recipe 2007/12/3 13:54
I recently came across a meronpan recipe that I made with quite a bit of sucess (it keeps disappearing lol) And now i'd like to try my hand at making Anpan, however i cannot find any recipes online. I live fairly close to a japanese grocery store and shouldn't have too many problems getting any of the ingredients i need. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I think anko and red bean paste is the same thing. Bean pastes are used for anpan and anman chinese steam buns,so it can be used for anpan also right? So I found red bean paste recipe and I will paste it here.

Sweet red bean paste can be bought in the store, and used straight from the can for filling, but this is how to make it from scratch.

1 1/2 cups red beans, washed well
4 cups water
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup sugar

Place the beans and water in a saucepan, cover, bring to boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 1 1/2 hours, or until beans are very soft. Strain the water from the beans, and blend them into a puree in a blender or food processor. Press the puree through a sieve, discarding the skins, which will be left in the sieve. Place the puree in several layers of cheesecloth, and gently squeeze to remove excess moisture. Place the thickened puree back into the saucepan, together with the sugar and vegetable shortening, and heat over low heat, stirring until it becomes a thick paste. Stir and scrape vigorously so that it does not stick to the bottom. Remove from heat and let cool before filling buns.

I hope it works.ヘU^ェ^U

Oh oops forgot Pan part (*^o^*)

Try using a basic sweet white dough or butterroll recipe and filling it with anko. Place 30g of anko on dough and wrap anko around and close it. Let them ferment till gets double sized. Then brush beaten eggs on the surface(to make them shine). Sprinkle some black sesame seeds. Bake 10minuets in oven (200 degree cel).

Does this sounds ok to you??

I made this one w/o a bread machine, and it works just fine. Don't overbake, otherwise it gets dry.
