Kelly, of A Messy Kitchen, was our Kitchen of the Month for February.  Kelly challenged us to make Black Sesame Shokupan, utilizing a distinct approach for making milk bread:  yudane (yoo-dah-nay).  You mix flour and boiling water and let it relaxation within the fridge in a single day. The ensuing bread is delicate and tender and has an extended shelf life, though, to be sincere, such a bread does not final very lengthy.

We had the selection of constructing a marbled bread utilizing black sesame paste, or, a extra conventional wanting bread.  I could not resist the marbled bread!  I purchased a jar of black sesame paste (earlier than the recipe had been added to Kelly’s submit), which is an efficient factor as a result of I would like it for different bakes (orange-black sesame cookies, for one).


I had enjoyable creating the marbled impact.  The top outcome was superb!  Every slice reveals a distinct sample, and every slice is really a murals.  I ought to have photographed every slice to indicate the development (overkill possibly?).  I used to be actually unhappy when the bread was gone.  Positively a bread I’ll make once more.  (Pondering of County Honest time this summer season.)

This was a terrific selection for our first 2024 problem.  Forgive the geological humor within the title, however I could not resist.

For the recipe, go to Kelly’s website.
