AntenDo bakeries throughout Tokyo are now selling what the company calls Hotcake Pan (¥210) — sweet bread in a baking cup filled with vanilla-bean custard and topped with a thick square of butter. The bread comes with a plastic drop filled with pure Canadian maple syrup. Heat the bread in the microwave for 30 seconds or in a toaster oven for a minute or two, and then pour the maple syrup on top — or better yet, shoot it inside. The end result tastes just like a pancake, and is available only in April. www.antendo.com.
