    15cm cake tin (you can also use a loaf tin or smaller tin to cook individual ones)

    100g weak flour

    5g baking powder

    60g unsalted butter

    80g sugar

    2 eggs (small or medium)

    1 apple

    10 walnuts

    Cinnamon sugar (to taste)

     

     

    Preparation

    ・Thinly slice the apples and squeeze over lemon juice. Cut 2-3 to the slices into a Korilakkuma shape.

    ・Roughly chop up the walnuts.

    ・If you don’t have cinnamon sugar, mix together one tsp of cinnamon with 1/4 cup of sugar.

    ・Combine the weak flour and baking powder and sieve.

    Melt the butter over a bain-marie.

     

    S__8568891

    2: Separate the egg yolks and whites. Thoroughly whisk the egg whites. Combine with the egg yolks, add the flour and mix.

     

    S__8568890

    3: Stir the mix in step 2 well. Add the melted butter in the places where it looks like there’s some flour left and mix.

    Add the mix to your cake tin and add your sliced apples that you prepared (but not the Rilakkuma shaped pieces).

    S__8568887

    6: If you cut a good shape of Korilakkuma out with your apple then leave it as it is. If the shape didn’t turn out well, cut out a white chocolate Korilakkuma and place it over the apple.

     

    S__8568886

    7: Draw the facial features with a chocolate pen.

    Once the apple cake is done, decorate all of your Rilakkuma, and you’re done.

     

    S__8568885S__8568884S__8568883

    The moist cake goes together perfectly with the apple, walnuts and cinnamon sugar! It’s delicious eaten fresh, but its level of moistness increases if you eat it the next day.

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe – Learn How to Make Pompompurin Pumpkin Tarts

    12.May.2018 | FEATURES / FOOD

    With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s recipe series! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

     

    For this recipe, you’ll learn how make mini Pompompurin pumpkin tarts! This is a simple recipe you can make with just a blender.

     

    S__8216618

    1: Ingredients

    12 Tart shells

    150g Pumpkin (deseeded, skin taken off and made soft)

    50ml Fresh cream (In this recipe I used soy milk)

    20-30g Sugar (Depending on the sweetness of the pumpkin)

    1 Egg yolk (small egg)

    Sliced Chocolate

    Tinned yellow peach

     

     S__8216619

    2: Steam and make the pumpkin soft in the microwave. Place the softened pumpkin, sugar, fresh cream (or soy milk) and egg yolk into a blender.

     

    S__8216620

    3: Blitz until it’s mixed like in the photo above.

     

     S__8216621

    4: Pour the mixture from Step 3 into the tart shells and place into a 180℃ preheated oven. Lower the temperature to 140-150℃ and cook for 10-15 minutes. (You don’t want to brown anything, so we cook it on a low heat.)

     

    If it looks like it’s about to start browning, cover with aluminium foil as this will prevent it from burning.

     

     S__8216622

    5: Once your cooked tarts have fully cooled down, use a round cutter to make a hat out of chocolate and a tear-drop cutter to make ears out of the yellow peach. The round ball on top of the hat can be made by breaking off some sliced chocolate and rolling it with your fingers.

     

    Finally, drawn on the eyes, nose and mouth with a warmed chocolate pen!

     S__8216623

    The crunchy tart shells and moist pumpkin paste go pair together wonderfully! And the sourness from the yellow peach is perfect, making is really tasty♡

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe – Learn How to Make “Rilakkuma Tear & Share Bread”

    29.April.2018 | FEATURES / FOOD

    With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s recipe series! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

     

    In this recipe, you’ll learn how to make cute tear & share bread of the character Rilakkuma!

     

    S__13115426

    First, you’ll need to make a pack out of a milk carton for the mix later.

    1. Open up a milk carton that you have washed and cut it into a cylindrical shape.

    2. Staple together your pieces from Step 1.

    3. Now, staple them together into a square that measures about 10-12cm.

    4. Wrap with aluminium foil.

    ☆これを2つ作り型はOKです

     

    Now, onto making the bread!

     

    S__13115427

    1: Ingredients

    240g strong flour

    5g dried yeast

    15g sugar

    3g salt

    5g cocoa powder

    60g unsalted butter

    1 egg

    75-80ml lukewarm water

     

    S__13115428

    2: Put the strong flour, dried yeast, salt and sugar into a bowl.

    ☆If the salt (塩) and yeast (イースト) are put side by side it will be difficult for the mix to rise to keep them separate.

    Mix the lukewarm water and egg together.

    Aim at the yeast and pour into the mix, then stir with a wooden spatula until it’s no longer floury.

     

    S__13115429

    3: Take out the flour once it’s at a point where it’s no longer floury, add the unsalted butter and knead with your hands.

     

    S__13115430

    4: Once your dough in Step 3 is mixed together, split the mix in half, and roll one of those halves as it is into a ball. With the other half, mix it bit by bit with the cocoa powder that has been dissolved in the lukewarm water and shape into a ball. Leave them to rise for 40 minutes.

     

    Once they have risen, divide both the plain mix and cocoa mix into 4 pieces (my pieces weighed 53g).

    ☆The amount of grams will change depending on the way you have kneaded it and the temperature, so it’s better to divide them into 4 after having measured their weight.

     

    Make ears from your 4 divided pieces (2g each).

    Once you’ve finished diving each part, line them up like in the photograph to set aside for 10 minutes.

     

    After 10 minutes, put them into the pack you made in the beginning.

    ☆Don’t put on the ears yet.

    Once they’re in, leave them to rise again for another 30 minutes before on the ears.

     

    S__13115431

    5: Once you’ve completed everything in Step 4, place them into a preheated oven at 180℃ then lower the temperature to 150℃ and cook for about 7-minutes.

    After that, so they don’t take on a brown colour, take off the aluminium foil and cook for a further 10-minutes.

     

    S__13115434

    6: Leave to cool down completely, draw on the faces with a chocolate pen, and you’re all done♡

     

    S__13115433

    S__13115432

    In this recipe I made the bread with 2 different kinds of batter, but you can make it with just plain if you like and it’ll be plenty kawaii.

    If you wrap them with a ribbon they make a perfect present!

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Transform a Standard Roll Cake into a Kawaii Hello Kitty Cake

    11.August.2020 | FEATURES / FOOD

    With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s easy recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

     

    In this recipe, you’ll learn how to transform a store-bought roll cake into a kawaii Hello Kitty cake which contains gyūhi – a form of traditional Japanese sweet which is a variety of mochi.

     

    Ingredients

    50g refined rice flour
    100ml water
    70g sugar
    potato starch
    strawberries and whipped cream to your liking
    sliced chocolate (for Hello Kitty’s face)

     

    1

    First, make the gyūhi by mixing 50g of refined rice flour with 100ml of water. Mix well to avoid lumps.


    Once this has been mixed, add 70g of sugar and mix again.

     

    2


    Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and microwave at 600W for 2 minutes.

     

    3

    Stir the mixture with a rubber spatula and microwave again for one more minute at 600W.

     

    4


    Use a rubber spatula to stir the mixture until it clumps together in one piece. Put a large portion of potato starch onto a tray and place your gyūhi on top.

     

    5


    Once the gyūhi has cooled, cut it to the size of the palm of your hand and use a rolling pin to stretch it out into a flat shape.

     

    6

    Leave your gyūhi to cool. In the meantime, bring out your store-bought roll cake piece and fill the inside with strawberries. When done, top your roll cake piece with whipped cream.

    *If your forget to add the whipped cream, the strawberries underneath will be visible through the gyūhi layer!

     

    7


    Place the gyūhi layer on top of the roll cake and press the dough together at the bottom of the cake to seal it.

     

    8

    Shape two pieces of remaining gyūhi dough into triangles and affix them to the top of the cake to create Hello Kitty’s ears. Use the sliced chocolate to create whiskers, eyes and a nose for Hello Kitty’s face and cut up a strawberry to make her bow.

    Once you have finished putting all the decorations in place, you’re done!

  • Hilton Osaka Serves Up Hello Kitty and My Melody Themed Summer Buffet

    15.June.2020 | FOOD

    The Folk Kitchen on the 2nd floor of Hilton Osaka is set to serve up the “Summer Sweets Buffet Festival ~Hello Kitty & My Melody Collaboration Tea Party~” from June 19, 2020 to September 13, 2020. The menu is made up of 25 colourful and summery desserts, as well as 7 vegan desserts made without any eggs, milk or animal products.

     

    The buffet is a step up from last year’s “Fashionable Hello Kitty Dessert Buffet” which we covered.


    This year’s summer buffet tea party combo is a sweet amalgamation of finger licking and lip smacking flavours. In the middle of the “Ice Cream Cup Cheesecake” is a moist baked cheesecake topped with cream cheese—and all of this hugged by a crunchy cone.

    Then there’s the “Lollipop Mousse Green Apple,” a vivid green iced candy with a fresh apple mousse filled with apple jam for a mix of sweet and sour flavours. The “Vegan Melon Cream Soda Jelly” is a melon flavoured jelly topped with a cream made from fizzy lime foam. If you’re wanting cake, then there’s the fluffy “Pineapple Chiffon Cake” topped with lots of cream.


    The “Pudding à la Mode” is topped with a chocolate My Melody picture, of which there are several designs.

     

    The vegans too have their fair share of refreshing summertime bites to enjoy too, like the “Vegan Peach Bellini” which uses agar-agar instead of gelatin. It’s a delightful combination of muscat grape jelly and peach jam. The “Vegan Chocolate Chip Cupcakes” have a fresh kick to them thanks to the fruity pineapple and soy milk combo. Other delights include the “Soy Milk Cream Fruit Bun,” “Vegan Piña Colada Panna Cotta,” and more.

     

    The buffet also includes 5 savoury food dishes too like cold corn soup, curry, salad, and more.

    On the 1st floor cafe and bar MYPLACE of Hilton Osaka, customers can order the above-pictured Hello Kitty & My Melody afternoon tea which is served in a jewellery box-like set.

This marks the 5th year that yoshikitty has ranked in the Top 10.

I want to continue delivering wonderful music to you all to repay you, even just a little. Thank you.” (translated from Japanese by MMN)

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Pompompurin Cheese Tarts

    17.May.2020 | FEATURES / FOOD

    With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s Easy Recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

     

    In today’s recipe, I’ll be showing you how I made a batch of Pompompurin cheese tarts made using store-bought tart cups.

     

    Ingredients (Makes 9-10)

    9-10 store bought tart cups
    200g cream cheese (brought to room temperature)
    20-30g sugar
    1 egg yolk
    50ml fresh cream
    8g potato starch (katakuriko)
    Vanilla beans to taste (can be substituted for vanilla extract)
    1 tbsp lemon juice

     

    Step 1


    Pour the following ingredients into a bowl in this order: cream cheese→sugar→egg yolk→vanilla beans→fresh cream→potato starch. Mix well. Make sure when you put the potato starch in last that you sprinkle it thinly.

     

    Step 2
    Bake the tart cups in an oven at 180℃ for 15-20 minutes. If you don’t have store-bought cups, you can use small cocotte dishes.

     

    Step 3

    Leave to cool. Now you can start drawing the face.

    For the hat I used sliced chocolate, for the ears sliced cheese, and for the facial features a chocolate pen.

    Once you’ve drawn the face, it’s time to tuck in!

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make a Gudetama Parfait

    09.May.2020 | FEATURES / FOOD

    With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s easy recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

     

    Today, I’ll be showing you how to make a Gudetama parfait made with a yogurt mousse and topped with orange and peach jelly.

     

    Ingredients
    Yogurt Mousse Ingredients:
    100g sugar free yogurt
    50ml fresh cream
    20g sugar
    3g gelatin
    *With the gelatin, mix well with 1 tbsp water

     

    Mikan & Yellow Peach Jelly Ingredients:
    100ml mikan juice (or any orange juice)
    150g tinned peaches (with syrup)
    5g gelatin
    *With the gelatin, mix well with 1 tbsp water

     

    1


    ①Mix the sugar into the yogurt well. Add in 7/10 of the fresh cream and mix well again.

    ②Microwave the gelatin for 10-20 seconds at 500w. Add into the mixture from ① and mix well.

     

    2

    Once the mixture has set in about ⅓ of a glass, add sliced chocolate on the inside for the eyes and mouth. I cut mine into shape using a toothpick.


    Make sure the chocolate is properly fixed to the glass at this point.

     

    3


    Put your yellow peach and mikan orange into a blender (but not the gelatin part). The syrup of the peaches is already sweet so there’s no need to add sugar.

     

    ②Microwave the gelatin for 10-20 seconds at 500w. Add into the blended mixture and mix well.

     

    Pour on top of the mix inside the glass. If there are any peach pieces left, cut them up and use them as toppings.

    Top with fresh cream and chopped fruit, and you’re done! I stuck Gudetama’s face on well and good so it looks like his chocolate face is on the outside. Be sure to try doing the same.
