    Coffee Bavarois

The ingredients of Panna Cotta and Bavarois are almost identical, but this Bavarois is made with Egg Yolks. It’s easy to make, at leat my recipe is easy. Makes 4 …

    Choc Ripple Biscuits & Raspberry Mess

    If you are familiar with Arnott’s Choc Ripple Biscuits, you probably know ‘Choc Ripple Log Cake’. The very dry biscuits turn into moist chocolate cake when covered with whipped Cream.

    Chestnut Ice Cream

    I occasionally purchase Sweetened Chestnut Paste. The purpose is to make ‘Mont Blanc Cake’, which has a very special meaning to me.

    Azuki Panna Cotta

    I tried to make Azuki flavoured Panna Cotta. I mixed Panna Cotta mixture with Tsubu-an (Sweet Azuki Paste). It was supposed to be a creamy burgundy coloured jelly, but the mixture set in such a pretty gradation of colour because Azuki Paste is heavy, especially the unbroken beans are heavy. Unfortunately it is hard to …

    Strawberry Brioche Sandwich

    I was a uni student when I first ate the delicious Fruit Sandwich. It was an ordinary sandwich made with Japanese Milk Bread and the filling of whipped cream and fruit.
