Hokkaido Buns / Japanese-Style Mexican Buns 日式北海道包

Last year, I was quite excited to finally find the firm paper cups used for baking that I have been noticing in quite a few of the Asian cookbooks the past few years. Call me crazy but I was so happy to have finally found them that I bought one of each of the different sizes even though I was not too sure what to use some of them for.



Alright the smaller ones (above) are for cupcakes, and the square one is the typical shape used for the Hokkaido Chiffon Cupcakes. The larger round shallow ones (below), for tarts? Or maybe for bread buns? The long ones (below), bread rolls? But it will be fun to use them…


I had used the small round ones for my Sour Cream Cupcakes late last year. So the next size I decided to use was the larger shallow round one. I chose to make the Hokkaido Buns which basically are the Japanese version of the Asian-Style Mexican Buns.



I have made them before but this time I made plain ones without filling. The paper cups were good for these buns because any excess topping that was to flow down were held inside the cups. Hmm, which paper cups should I use next…

      • I got them from KFL supermarket. But I’ve also seen Fast Ed using similar paper cups just a couple of weeks ago on BHG, so I assume any of those professional kitchen shops would carry them as well, haven’t visited them recently so not too sure.
