Categorised in: | Link of this article

In this recipe video, I will show you how to make Kids Friendly Japanese snacks. It’s easy to buy sweets and snacks at store, but I believe that making them at home is healthy and satisfying. I often make easy and simple snacks with my son on weekdays after kindergarten or weekends. This time, I will introduce 2 snack recipes; Brown Sugar Steamed Bun and 3 flavors Egg Bolo. To know more about these recipes, please watch this video tutorial. Please try these recipes and tell me how it was!
