I am not much of a baker for someone who spends quite a bit of time in the kitchen. Maybe it's because most bakeries in Japan are simply amazing so we don't try to make too many dessert at home. There's a bakery near my house in Yokohama where the fresh cream taste just like heaven. When my friend Ellena asked me if I knew how to make Japanese steamed bread (Mushi Pan), I went to search for a recipe that looked yummy. After the snack judges in the house (my two children) approved, I am happy to share this recipe.
The Japanese love mayo, we enjoy mayo with a wide variety of Japanese food ranging from deep fried food, okonomiyaki (Japanese Pizza), Yakisoba (Japanese stir fry noodle), sushi, to salad. This simple apple salad is mayo based but it is super yummy. The tartness of fresh apple mixed in with raisin and just a bit of lemon balances out the mayo perfectly.
