    Orange Yoghurt Mousse

    Because my ‘Blueberry Yoghurt Jelly Dessert’ was so successful, I altered it to create another jelly dessert. I used Orange Juice instead of Milk and Cream, and added Yoghurt and Egg White. Because of the 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier I added, the result was almost Grand Marnier Mousse. WHEW! Please add it with caution, and …

    Blueberry Yoghurt Jelly Dessert

    I made this Blueberry Yoghurt Jelly Dessert using my ‘Panna Cotta’ recipe. I reduced the amount of Milk and Cream to 1/2, and added Greek Yoghurt. Soft jelly set in the glass tastes similar to Cheesecake. I used Frozen Blueberries to make the sauce. Easy to make, looks great and tastes fantastic! Makes 4 Servings …

    Creamy Agar Milk Jelly & Mango

    I used to make Kanten jelly often, but Kanten is not easy to find. These days I use Queen’s ‘Jel-It-In Vegetarian Gelling Powder that is Agar. It doesn’t have an unpleasant smell like Gelatine and it sets clean and clear jelly. I like its texture better than Kanten’s. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 1 to 2 …

    In Japan, there is a milk dessert called ‘Fruiche’, that helped me survive during Japan’s hot summers as I always lost my appetite.

    Peach Fool & Peach Jelly

    I am from Okayama, Japan. Okayama is famous for its production of fruit, especially ‘White Peach’. Different types of White peaches are available in Melbourne where I live. Different, but they still smell and taste like Okayama’s ‘White Peach’ that I miss. *Note: White Peaches are the best for this dessert, but you can use …

    Umeshu Jelly

    ‘Umeshu’ is a Japanese liqueur made by steeping unripe Ume fruits (similar to apricot) in strong alcohol, such as Shōchū, with Sugar. It has quite high alcohol content. Believe or not, I was allowed to drink it when I was a child. It was mixed with plenty of icy cold water, though.  This jelly is …

    Tapioca Milk Jelly

    I have tried to make ‘Tapioca Pudding’ several times. I followed the instruction printed on the package of Tapioca Pearls. Every time I slightly burned the bottom of the saucepan. Then I decided to reduce the amount of Tapioca Pearls for the recipe, and I added Gelatine to help setting. It was a BRILLIANT idea!!! …

Based on my ‘Basic Bavarois’ recipe, chestnut flavoured bavarois is …

    Passionfruit Panna Cotta

    Here is another way to use up our ‘never-ending’ harvest of Passionfruit. I simply added the Passionfruit pulp to my ‘Panna Cotta’, which is quite light because as I always use Milk and Cream. I removed seeds from the Panna Cotta, but it’s up to your preference. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 500ml (2 cups) of …

    Here is a warning to all Matcha lovers. This ‘Matcha Jelly’ is quite addictive and your matcha consumption might increase significantly. That’s happened to me. The jelly is sweetened but I really recommend to enjoy it with White Chocolate Sauce, which is easy to make (*see below for the recipe), OR Condensed Milk or Vanilla …
