4 Ingredients Only Melon Pan Toast

Have you tried melon pan メロンパン before? How about Mexican concha? These two share many similarities. Look-wise, you'll mostly find shell-like pattern on a Mexican concha and criss-cross pattern on melon pan. 

But we're not making bread here today. Instead, let's cut down the workload and use store bought milk toast to create 4 ingredients only melon pan toast.

Ingredients (for two thick slices)?

  • 2 thick slices milk toast
  • 40 grams unsalted butter
  • 40 grams cake flour
  • 40 grams granulated sugar


Preheat the oven to 360 degrees Fahrenheit/180 degrees Celsius. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 

Thick milk toast

Make sure to use better quality thick toast, milky flavor would be your best option. Usually you can find very good milk toast at an Asian, to be exact Japanese bakery.

Use room temperature softened butter, add that to a bowl. Use a fork to press it down and spread out a little bit.

Add in granulated sugar and mix till blended. You can simply use the same fork all the way through, which is much easier to clean compared to mini whisk. 

Melon pan toast topping

Add in the cake flour and mix till blended again.

Spread the mixture on one side of the toast. It's optional if you would like to make criss-cross pattern on the toast using the back of the knife.

Transfer the toast to the baking sheet and into the oven for 5 to 7 minutes, or till the top turned slightly golden or lightly browned. 

Once ready, remove from heat and wait till cool-off before serving.

I like my melon pan toast on the extra baked side, which gives me an even grainier texture and crunchier bite on the edges. However, that means I'll lose the scored pattern due to extended baking time.

If you would like to keep the criss-cross pattern, don't leave the toast under the heat for too long. That way, you'll get a nice golden/yellowish melon pan toast in the end.
