    Rhubarb & Strawberry Crumble

    I like Rhubarb desserts, but I always want to add Strawberries just like my ‘Rhubarb & Strawberry Cobbler’. You might prefer using Rhubarb only. This recipe is for 2 servings but it is easy to multiply and you can bake a larger serve in a baking dish. But, it is much quicker and easier to …

    Fruit Tart

    I made this Fruit Tart for my daughter’s birthday on her request. She changed her mind later and asked for Profiteroles, but I made it anyway. It looks complicated to make, but each element is simple. If you use store-bought Frozen Sweet Fran/Pie Base, it’s really easy to make. Today I used my Basic Shortcrust …

    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. I had never had such a combination before. As Japanese Milk Bread is impossible to find where I live now, I use Brioche Loaf. …

    Strawberry Milk Jelly

    I tried to make ‘Strawberry Milk Jelly’. All recipes that I found required heating Milk and Sugar first, then add Gelatine, and finally add pureed Strawberries. I tried one recipe and I was totally disappointed. Guess what happened when I added pureed Strawberries to the warm milk mixture? Milk curdled because of the acidity of …

    Scoop Cake

    I heard ‘Scoop Cake’ has recently become quite popular in Japan. I believe it has been strongly influenced by the English dessert ‘Trifle’. However, ‘Scoop Cake’ in Japan is more like a shortcake in a bowl. It can be made with the clumsiest hands, because the sponge cake doesn’t have to be perfectly baked and …

    I live in Melbourne, Australia. Our Christmas is in summer. It can be very hot on the day. Summer Desserts are popular on Christmas day. Trifle is probably the most popular dessert.

    My Children’s Parfait

    This is the dessert that my children used to make by themselves when they were young. While we were living in Japan for a short period of time, my children fell in love with Japanese style parfait, made by layering jelly, whipped cream, ice cream, and fruit, usually served in a tall glass. After we …

    Strawberry Daifuku Mochi

    ‘Daifuku Mochi’, or Daifuku, is a Japanese sweet consisting of a small round glutinous rice cake stuffed with sweet Azuki paste. There are many variations these days, and this ‘Strawberry Daifuku Mochi’ is probably the most popular one. I wouldn’t try to make it if I were in Japan. However, here in Melbourne where I …

    Strawberry Milk Pectin Jelly

    In Japan, there is a milk dessert called ‘Fruiche’, that helped me survive during Japan’s hot summers as I always lost my appetite. House Foods, a well known food company that is famous for Curry Roux, sells ‘Fruiche’ mixture in a variety of flavours, and the mixture sets like soft jelly when mixed with cold …

    Eton Mess

    Eton Mess is a traditional English dessert consisting of a mixture of strawberries, broken meringue and whipped cream. I have heard about it and read about it, and it inspired me to make a dessert ‘Mango & Passionfruit Mess’, which is absolutely easy to make and delicious. Then I finally made ‘Eton Mess’. I understand …
