This is another one on my must-try list: Japanese Melon Bun. I got the recipe from Happy Home Baking.
After I was done with mine, I looked at HHB's blog again to see if what I have is close to the original recipe and I realized that it's not at all! My pastry layer was different that what HHB had. I think that it's because I had used all purpose flour instead of cake flour. The all purpose flour is "heavier" and it may be the cause of my downfall in this recipe. I was out of cake flour while I was in the middle of making my pastry layer and I was lazy to drive to the grocery store. I guess it's the price I have to pay for being lazy.
I will definitely try this again in the future - and next time, I'll use cake flour. :)
