Japanese food has a reputation for being healthy but, for those of us in the know, some of the best Japanese food is anything but healthy. Presenting the Ogura butter sandwich (小倉バターサンド), a dessert similar to An-pan except for the addition of creamy, delicious butter.
If you’re a fan of an-pan or Japanese sweets in general, you owe it to yourself to try this simple recipe at home. Of course, the always skilled chef and her dog Francis will be more than happy to guide you, step-by-step, as you prepare your own Ogura butter sandwich.
Good luck in the kitchen ;)!
