Bread class*

21 Aug


Have you ever tried Japanese Roll Bread (ロールパン) ?

This is a traditional bread in Japan, and just like the loaf, we grow up eating this bread^^. It’s a simple and nice bread to eat on its own but you can also make them into sandwiches by putting ham, boiled egg, tuna, and many other things. As a Malaysian, you can also sandwich butter and kaya! In fact, I tried it the other day and it tasted good~!   

So in September class, I would like to introduce you this Japanese Roll Bread (6pcs) together with Apple Strudel Bun (7″ roll size).


This is Apple Strudel Bun. Unlike my other breads I introduced you in the past, this bread is butter-rich and it’s almost like a pastry. The photo is one of the trial ones I made before, so it will look slightly different during the class. We will roll in apple together with cinnamon and raisins, and will put almond slice on top! Yum yum…

Both are very nice recipes so I hope to contribute on your future breakfast! hehe…

Thanks to you, our two classes are currently full. But I am definitely going to repeat this class either this month (weekday) or in October. So for those of you who are interested in, please contact me still!

DATE & TIME:     September 14th (Sun.)       1:00pm-4:00pm – FULL 

                             September 18th (Thurs.)    11:00am-2:00pm – FULL

FEE:                     RM180.00 (RM149.00 for members) 



September 2014 Class Schedule*

15 Aug

green tea layer cake

Hi there!

Time flies and it’s already middle of August! The last few weeks have been rather gratifying for me because my daughter is having a summer holiday and she is around, together with my son. My daughter likes to follow me to the shop because she gets to “taste” my macarons and also likes to help me baking. Even at 3.5 years old she’s an enthusiastic student, and very focused! I always have to look for something she can do at the shop… which delays my work but it’s okay. I enjoy spending these moments with my kids!

By the way, month of September is a beginning of Autumn season. In Japan, we have a saying “Autumn is a season with good appetite (食欲の秋).” This is because many foods and fruits will be around this season such as; apple, pear, persimmon and chestnuts. It’s a great season to visit Japan and enjoy seasonal foods!

So in the month of September, I would like to introduce you cakes with apple and pear. And pear, chestnuts in the coming months! I would also like to teach you various kinds of genoise (sponge cake) in the next coming months, so that you can practice decorating cakes!

Red bean buns*

I got this Red bean bun from one of my students! It’s her hand-made bun^^! She told me that ever since she learnt the snow white bread from me, she is making buns for her family on weekends. Wow!

I made some doughnuts today!

This donuts is a bread type and you make it with “yeast”. Even though you fry, it’s rather healthy like a bread! I like its bouncy texture.




I had them with Japanese kinako (soy bean powder). This is one of my favorite way of having donuts. Hope to introduce to you all in my future class!

Bread Baking Session 2 ~Bagel*Bagel~!

24 Apr

Afternoon class was Session 2 ~Bagel*Bagel~ class! We had 2 students this day that joined both morning and afternoon sessions. Thank you so much for your hardwork ^^!

We made chocolate chip & walnuts bagels and honey & cranberry bagels. Since it’s more difficult to make bagels with lots of filling, we will practice a plain bagel first using the honey bagel dough.


Bagels are actually less work than the table roll, and we don’t have the smashing and throwing process. The proofing time is also less so if you are having a busy morning this menu will be good to start with!

My class is small group of students and intimate setting!

 The next class will be held on May 19th (Sat.) 2:30pm-5:30pm and May 25th (Fri.)   2:30pm-5:30pm. If you’d like to join, please contact us by email or sms: / 012-352-3106 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              012-352-3106      end_of_the_skype_highlighting (Tomoko). Thank you very much for reading my blog, and hope to see you soon!



First Bread Baking Session! ~Table Rolls~

24 Apr

Last weekend we had the first bread making sessions!

Session 1 in the morning, we made sausage roll and ham & cheese roll with basic table roll! We of course used our ‘hands’ (and not the machine, haha) since I want to teach students how to make a soft bun using hands!

We had to press, smash and throw the dough a few hundred times, and then only get to do this rolling process…^^

At home, of course you can use machine to shorten all this tedious and tiring process! But I think children would love to help you doing all this, and it’s always good to learn both ways!

Tala~! So these are the breads we baked.

Each of you get to bring back this much! 8 rolls + extra. We will also practice this simple roll bread without anything inside.

Hope you had a wonderful breakfast time with your family the next morning^^*!

The next class will be held on May 19th (Sat.) 10:30am-1:30pm and May 25th (Fri.)   10:30am-1:30pm. If you’d like to join, please contact us by email or sms: / 012-352-3106 (Tomoko). Thank you very much for reading my blog, and hope to see you soon!
