Japanese Bakery Transforms Ordinary Bread Into a Tasty Square Watermelon Loaf

Square Watermelon Bread

Combining the novelty of a square watermelon with the new watermelon bread trend, Japanese bakery Bo-Lo’Gne presents a delightful square watermelon loaf. Sold online by the Daimaru Matsuzakaya department store, the bread is both beautiful and delicious.

Known as Suika Pan (literally “Watermelon Bread” in Japanese), the bakery takes pains to create the illusion of your favorite fruit. The exterior is stripped to mimic a real watermelon rind, with the interior “seeds” made from bits of chocolate.

Once you cut in, that's where the magic really happens, as each slice takes on the uncanny illusion of a watermelon wedge. With dough made from watermelon juice, the essence of this summertime treat is in every bite. And, if you throw it in the toaster, you'll have its sweet fragrance wafting through the house.

With real square watermelons a high-end luxury that can cost two to three times that of a normal one, the Suika Pan clocks in at an affordable 2,400 yen (about $23). Unfortunately, Daimaru Matsuzakaya only ships within Japan, but gives great inspiration to create your own loaf.

Japanese bakery Bo-Lo’Gne makes this delicious square loaf of watermelon bread, using bits of chocolates as seeds and flavoring the dough with watermelon juice.
