Posted on December 2, 2020

For whatever reason, quarantine brought out the inner-baker in all of us, and everyone and their grandmother was making banana bread. YAWN! As the pandemic still sees no end in sight, why not try making chigiripan, Japanese pull apart bread? It’s just as simple and gives you so much more room for creativity!

Even if you’re not much of a sweet tooth, you can also make delicious savory breads. @momoko_423‘s bread is filled with corn, mayo, bacon, and onions! YUM!

If you’ve surpassed baking simple loaves of bread, chigiri pan is here to raise the bar with bread wreaths. However, these aren’t going to be your average rye or sour dough bread wreaths: try making themed wreaths!
