I sometimes crave ‘Wagashi’, Japanese sweets, but it is almost impossible to find where I live. When I miss ‘Wagashi’, I cook ‘Tsubu-an’ (Sweet Azuki Paste), which is a very popular ingredient for Japanese sweets. I want to share a super quick and easy cake you can make using ‘Taubu-an’ (Sweet Azuki Paste). It satisfies my craving and it takes only a few minutes to make.


1 Serving


1 tablespoon Butter *1 tablespoon is 15ml
2-3 tablespoons Milk *OR 1 Egg
4 tablespoons ‘Tsubu-an’ (Sweet Azuki Paste)
4 tablespoons Self-Raising Flour

  1. Place Butter in a mug, microwave for 20-30 seconds OR until Butter melts.
  2. Add Milk (OR Egg), Tsubu-an (Sweet Azuki Paste) and Self-Raising Flour, and mix well.
  3. Microwave for 1 to 1 & 1/2 minutes OR until cooked. I recommend to enjoy it with Cream. *Note: Try not to over-cook it as the cake turns very dry.
