Story Behind this Recipe

I aimed for a round version of the chocolate chip rice flour bread (Recipe ID: 975876) but no matter how I looked at it, it looked like bean daifuku, so I decided to try to make that instead.
Sure enough, it suited the chewy dough and was so delicious.
If I do say so myself, this sweet bread will be a big hit!
