Matcha Melonpan with Redbean paste and plain Melonpan
Also known as melon pan, melon bun or melon bread is a type of sweet bun from Japan, that is also popular in Taiwan, China and Latin America. They are made from an enriched dough covered in a thin layer of crisp cookie dough. Their appearance resembles a melon, such as a Cantaloupe. They are not traditionally melon flavored, but in recent times it has become popular for manufacturers to add melon to melon bread.
