Tear 'n' Share bread is going viral in Japan, so I decided to make ted buns filled with homemade sweet Azuki red bean paste. Yummy!!!
Of course you can enjoy making this with your favorite character ;)
Tear 'n' Share ted Anpan
Time: 2hrs or more
Number of servings: 18cm (7inch) square cake pan
280g (9.9oz.) bread flour
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. dry yeast
1 tsp. salt
180ml milk *room temperature
3 tbsp. unsalted butter *room temperature
320g (11.3oz.) Anko (Azuki Red Bean Paste)
1. You want all the ingredients at room temperature.
2. In a large bowl, place bread flour, sugar, salt, dry yeast, and salt. Keep the dry yeast away from the salt as the salt will kill the dry yeast.
3. Gradually mix in milk, use your hand to mix together until formed. Transfer the dough to the counter and knead until sticky and well formed.
4. Add butter, stretch the dough for a few times using your palms, fold it in half, turn it around (90C), and stretch again. Repeat and knead until smooth, without adding any extra flour for 10-15 minutes). The dough should be very elastic which when stretched becomes almost translucent.

5. Lightly oil a large bowl. Form the dough into a ball and place it in the bowl seam side down. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap (to keep the surface of the dough from drying out), and leave to proof in a warm place (30C/86F) for 30-60 minutes or until it has doubled or tripled in size. (In winter, you can use the proof function on your home oven!)
6. While proofing, divide Anko (Azuki Red Bean Paste) into 16 pieces and roll them into balls. Grease the pan with some oil or butter, OR line with parchment paper.
((Knock-Back & Bench Time / Resting))
7. Place the dough onto a floured surface and punch out the air with your palm.
8. Divide it into 16 equal pieces using a bench scraper or a knife. Quickly form them into balls.
9. Place them on a baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap (to keep the surface of the dough from drying out), and rest for 15 minutes. The dough is surprised because you punched, so please let them rest for a while before you start shaping.
10. Cut off small pieces for the ears and brows. Using a rolling pin or your palm, flatten out the dough. Wrap Anko (Azuki Red Bean Paste) and pinch to close. Attach the ears and brows, then place it in the square pan.

11. Cover with plastic wrap (to keep the surface of the dough from drying out), and leave to proof in a warm place (30C/86F) for about 30 minutes or until they have doubled in size. (In winter, you can use the proof function on your home oven!)
12. Preheat the oven to 180C (350F).
13. If the ears and brows are coming off, press and attach them with a toothpick.
14. Bake at 180C (350F) for about 20 minutes or more.
15. Remove from the pan and place it on a wire rack to cool.
16. When the bread is completely cool, melt the chocolates in pastry bags. Snip off the end, then draw the faces on each of the rolls.
* To keep the surface of the dough from drying out, a wet towel is okay but plastic wrap is easier!
