DAISO Kawaii Animal Tofu Stamps - Video Recipe

This set of 4 cute tofu stamps is a very popular item sold at DAISO (100yen shop in Japan). It can get sold out quite soon, so if you happened to find it, just get it! You can use them to stamp cookie dough as well ;)

A cute side dish in a second, even if you don't have time! hehe



What You Need:
Kinugoshi-Dofu (Silken Tofu is recommended)
soy sauce OR dark-colored dressing is OK

How to Use:
1. Press stamp onto a piece of Tofu.
2. Slowly and carefully remove the stamp from the edge.
3. Pour soy sauce onto the imprint.

FYI (soy sauce I used):
Matsuno Shoyu (in Kyoto) has practiced the traditional handmade method of making Japanese soy sauce for 200 years. Only the best ingredients are chosen because these decide the final aroma and taste of their soy sauce after fermentation in wooden barrels.

4. Heat another 1/2 tbsp. of butter in a frying pan and cook chopped onion until tender. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink. Add mushrooms and mixed vegetables, then season with cracked black pepper.
5. Place 4. on top of the rice. *do not mix or the rice won't cook evenly.
6. Place the pot into the rice cooker. Cover and press the button to start.
7. When it's done, toss the rice lightly using a rice paddle. Then serve in a dish.

How to Make Tear 'n' Share ted Anpan (Kawaii Japanese Sweet Azuki Red Bean Buns) - Video Recipe

Tear 'n' Share bread is going viral in Japan, so I decided to make ted buns filled with homemade sweet Azuki red bean paste. Yummy!!!

Of course you can enjoy making this with your favorite character ;)



---------------------------------
Tear 'n' Share ted Anpan

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 2hrs or more
Number of servings: 18cm (7inch) square cake pan

Ingredients:
280g (9.9oz.) bread flour
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. dry yeast
1 tsp. salt
180ml milk *room temperature
3 tbsp. unsalted butter *room temperature
320g (11.3oz.) Anko (Azuki Red Bean Paste)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyE9a8gejHA
white chocolate
milk chocolate

Directions:
((Kneading))
1. You want all the ingredients at room temperature.
2. In a large bowl, place bread flour, sugar, salt, dry yeast, and salt. Keep the dry yeast away from the salt as the salt will kill the dry yeast.
3. Gradually mix in milk, use your hand to mix together until formed. Transfer the dough to the counter and knead until sticky and well formed.
4. Add butter, stretch the dough for a few times using your palms, fold it in half, turn it around (90C), and stretch again. Repeat and knead until smooth, without adding any extra flour for 10-15 minutes). The dough should be very elastic which when stretched becomes almost translucent.
((1st Proving / Proofing / Rising))
5. Lightly oil a large bowl. Form the dough into a ball and place it in the bowl seam side down. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap (to keep the surface of the dough from drying out), and leave to proof in a warm place (30C/86F) for 30-60 minutes or until it has doubled or tripled in size. (In winter, you can use the proof function on your home oven!)
6. While proofing, divide Anko (Azuki Red Bean Paste) into 16 pieces and roll them into balls. Grease the pan with some oil or butter, OR line with parchment paper.
((Knock-Back & Bench Time / Resting))
7. Place the dough onto a floured surface and punch out the air with your palm.
8. Divide it into 16 equal pieces using a bench scraper or a knife. Quickly form them into balls.
9. Place them on a baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap (to keep the surface of the dough from drying out), and rest for 15 minutes. The dough is surprised because you punched, so please let them rest for a while before you start shaping.
((Shaping))
10. Cut off small pieces for the ears and brows. Using a rolling pin or your palm, flatten out the dough. Wrap Anko (Azuki Red Bean Paste) and pinch to close. Attach the ears and brows, then place it in the square pan.
((2nd Proving / Proofing / Rising))
11. Cover with plastic wrap (to keep the surface of the dough from drying out), and leave to proof in a warm place (30C/86F) for about 30 minutes or until they have doubled in size. (In winter, you can use the proof function on your home oven!)
12. Preheat the oven to 180C (350F).
((Baking))
13. If the ears and brows are coming off, press and attach them with a toothpick.
14. Bake at 180C (350F) for about 20 minutes or more.
15. Remove from the pan and place it on a wire rack to cool.
16. When the bread is completely cool, melt the chocolates in pastry bags. Snip off the end, then draw the faces on each of the rolls.

* To keep the surface of the dough from drying out, a wet towel is okay but plastic wrap is easier!
