A little unexpected shape & form eh? Yes, this is not your usual round puffy looking an-pan. I have seen some google image search call this style “yaki-an-pan”. The bread is actually still very soft. Even this bread is made with tofu, you really cannot taste that, so don’t worry if you are afraid of tofu. The taste is very very subtle. The tofu provide a lot of moisture to this dough. Yes, it is a very stick mess to knead but fun! The best is without additional fat from butter, this bread still remain soft and tender after a couple days.
Still look like your normal an-pan now…
Here is the trick! cover the bun with silicon pat(smooth side touch the buns). Then put another baking sheet on top. Heat from top and bottom will nicely brown the bun on both side and ..
And you end up with disk look
I have extra dough, so put the rest in cube bread box and end up with basic lovely tofu toast
