    Red Cabbage & Apple Soup

    If you have any doubt about cooking Apple with Garlic and Onion, trust me. The Apple adds its pleasant acidity to the soup and the acidity makes this beautiful colour. If you add more acid, such as Vinegar, the colour will become redder. Three humble ingredients (Red Cabbage, Onion and Apple) make such a delicious …

    Apple Juice & Vodka Jelly

    Many people are making this Apple Juice Jelly that has a resemblance to foamy Beer. Beer look-alike Jelly can be alcoholic, can’t it? Then I decided to add Vodka to it. You can use ‘Umeshu’, Brandy OR other Liquor instead. The white foamy top is the same Jelly that is just whipped up. *Warning: This …

    Grated Apple Pound Cake

    This Pound Cake is slightly sour. The sourness comes from Apples. You don’t see Apple pieces in this cake, because the Apples were finely grated. As a lot of juice comes out of Apples, you might need to add extra Flour. The cake tastes better when cold, and it stays moist for a few days, …

    Apple & Carrot Bread

    There are many Apple Bread recipes but I would call them Apple Cake. All use too much Sugar. I first made this ‘Apple Bread’ by adding 1 Apple to my ‘Carrot Bread’, and the batter ended up too runny. I realised that Milk shouldn’t be added because enough liquid would come out from Carrot and …

This Coleslaw is quite sweet and fruity, and Fennel’s anise-like aroma and flavour bring the Coleslaw to a next level. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 1/2 bulb …

    My ‘Blueberry & Sour Cream Pie’ has been popular and I am loving its sour cream filling that is so easy to make. This filling works well with many other fruit, with or without pie crust. Today I simply packed a pie dish with Apple, poured the sour cream filling over and baked it. Easy …

    Rice Cooker Apple Upside-down Cake

    My first attempt to make a cake using the rice cooker was very successful but the bottom of the cake was fairly dark brown. I could have taken it out a little bit earlier. Then, I realised that the Upside-down Cakes such as my ‘Pear Upside-down Cake’ would be very suitable for this rice cooker …

    Apple & Orange Cake

    This cake used to be an Orange Cake. I started adding Apple, then the recipe has been altered repeatedly. Dried Black Currants, which are not so sweet or sour, are a good addition to this cake, I think, but it is optional. The most important ingredient of this cake is Orange Zest. I recommend to …

    Spaghetti, Cabbage & Apple Salad

    In Japan, Spaghetti are often used for salad just like Macaroni are used for salad. This salad is another dish I learned from a friend who taught me ‘Crispy Abura-agé with Miso & Spring Onion’ when I was at uni. That’s many many years ago, and I am still making it. You know how much …
