Shibuya Toast 1.0

Last week I had a craving to make a Shibuya toast. Now to be honest, I don’t know what the original “Shibuya Toast” taste like or how it’s made. But we have had it in Thailand a few times and saw pictures of them online, which are completely different. Understandable though, I think it’s like Pad Thai, if you are not Thai, you are not subjected to know the differences.

Anyhow, I wanted to make one and was looking for milk bread (basically bread made with milk, it’s fluffier and more dense) but couldn’t find one, and was NOT interested in baking one. Then, I got a message from a new friend I made when I took over Everyday Akron‘s instagram account. Eric offered to make me a loaf and of course I gracefully accept his kind offer (There’s more about Eric later!)

Pick up the bread yesterday and we actually ate 2/3 of the loaf on the way home. It was sooooooo good! Like so good I had to drop some off for my foodie friends to try because I want them to have it fresh.

After googling a few recipe, I decided to make my own – no surprise. The easier the better.

You will need:

  • a loaf of milk bread
  • a stick of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • condensed milk
  • fruits of your choice
  • ice cream of your choice
  • whipped cream
  • parchment paper
  • preheat oven at 360 degrees

Make it:

Step by step pictures and descriptions below.

Again, note that this is my easy recipe, you can totally google and find more advance ones if you may.

1. You supposed to use a loaf of uncut bread but it was too big for us so I cut them anyway.
2. Then slice of the top to make a cube.
3. Make incision across each side. Do not cut through the bottom.
4. I sliced my knife through one side to slice the bottom of the cube.
5. Pull the square of bread out from the loaf. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just try get the bread out as square as possible.
6. Melt a stick of butter with 1 tablespoon of sugar, or more if you have sweeter tooth.
7. Cube the block of bread you pulled out from the square. Brush it with butter or I just dip it.
8. Brush the inside and and outside of the bread “box”.
9. Depending on your oven, if your top element is for broiling like mine, just preheat to BROIL and only bake for 2-3 minutes or until brown. Otherwise, preheat to 360 degrees and bake until brown.
This was 3 minutes.
10. Slice your fruits. Use anything you want.
11. I drizzled condensed milk on the bottom of the “box” then add some strawberries before I filled it with bread cubes. Use your imagination here. There is no right way!
12. Drizzle more condensed milk. Chocolate syrup or butterscotch could be good too!
13. Garnish with more sweet. We used Chocolate filled biscuit sticks here and whipped cream. And it’s ready!
Once you break the “wall” the inside is as fun as you make it!
These two ate most of it and daddy gave me a thumb up too! #thatssuccess

That was easy right?!

It’s been a while since I blog about food (I used to have food blog if any of you remember) but this was fun and I think it’s something I really enjoy doing. Please share your thoughts and if you may want to see more of this stuff, along with places and kids activities of course.

Thanks again for visiting!

xoxo,
