Lavender's Bakery

Here are some light buns that I bought from Lavender's Bakery in Pavillion last Thursday. I realized one thing about this bakery is they like to use red beans. I love the red bean buns from this bakery as the paste is not too sweet and it's not too pureed and still retains a bit of bite of the red beans and its skin making this whole taste experience seem more natural and not too processed.

1. Mochi Red Bean Danish

Dorayaki is a japanese pancake sandwich with fillings of kaya (egg custard), red bean paste, sesame seed paste, peanut butter and others made famous from the Doraemon (a Japanese Cartoon Series) show.

In Wikipedia,

"Dorayaki (どら焼き, どらやき, 銅鑼焼き, ドラ焼き, Dorayaki?) is a type of Japanese confection which consists of two small pancake-like patties made from kasutera wrapped around a filling of sweet red bean paste.
It originally only had one layer, and the current shape was invented in
1914 by the Ueno Usagiya.
In Japanese, dora means "
gong", and this is probably the origin of the name of the sweet.
The famous Japanese anime cat robot character
Doraemon got his name from Dorayaki since he like to eat dorayaki very much. The dorayaki became serveral plot stimulant through out the series. In Japan, a company sells a limited version of dorayaki called Doraemon Dorayaki every year from march to September."

2. Bunny Stamp has Crushed Roasted Peanuts and a thick layer of peanut butter filling.

Overall, not too sweet. I love stuff from this bakery and never fail to buy from there each time I go to Pavilion Shopping Mall in KL.
