A Note About the Soup and Muffin Bento

A small but critical correction for the Soup and Muffin Bento which starts on page 102.

On page 103, the amount of flour in the Basic Savory Muffin batter for the Cheese and Edamame Muffin recipe is wrong. Instead of 1 cup (125g) of cake flour, use 2 cups (250g) cake flour (or all-purpose flour). This applies for all of the muffin variations on the next page too.

My apologies for this typo!

Note that this error appears in the first edition only. It’s been corrected in subsequent editions.
