Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn How to Make “Pompompurin Steamed Cheese Bread”

24.November.2018 | 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 character recipe you will learn how to make a “Pompompurin Steamed  Cheese Bread” (labeled CHEESE STEAM UP BREAD).

Did you know that recently decorating a “steamed cheese bread” is the in thing to be doing right now? So, in this recipe I will explain about how to decorate a steamed cheese bread in a Christmas fashion.

 

1:Ingredients

1 steamed cheese bread

1 sheet of nori (dried seaweed)

Chocolate plastic

Red coloring powder

 

2:

Trace an illustration of your favorite character onto a baking sheet. I chose Pompompurin. Next, I thought it would be cute to indent the face and highlight the ears so I cut out these parts from the baking sheet.

3:

Next, place the face cutout onto the surface of the cheese bread and cut the bread in line with the cutout. Remove this part and set it aside. This part will be used to make the ears and hands. The surface below the removed part might be a bit uneven so using the back end of a chopstick make this area flat.

4:

Turn over the removed part and flatten this surface using the back end of a chopstick. Place the ear cutout onto the surface and cut the ears out. Using the remaining part cut out some round hands.

5:Color the plastic chocolate red and form the hat and boots. Using the white plastic chocolate, add the white parts. Using a puncher, cut out the eyes, nose and mouth from the laver seaweed.

Place all of these parts on the surface of the cheese bread, and voila, your “Pompompurin Steamed Cheese Bread” is complete.

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: How to Make Winnie the Pooh Cheesecake

    21.October.2018 | 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.

     

    I’ve received lots of comments from my followers asking if I have an easier recipe they can make without messing anything up. So today I’m showing you my simple Winnie the Pooh cheesecake recipe using items bought from Muji!

     

    1: Ingredients/Equipment

    ・①Muji’s baked cheesecake mix (above right) ②Muji’s Thick-Sliced Baumkuchen (above left)

    ・Eggs, milk and unsalted butter needed for the baked cheesecake

    ・Cake mould (There was a paper mould inside the cheesecake mix box but I got myself 4 smaller ones)

    ・Round cutter for the ears

    ・Chocolate pen for the face

     

    2. Put together all the necessary ingredients written on the back of the baked cheesecake mix box into a bowl. Mix together and cook.

    3. Once your cakes are cooked, add the apricot jam that comes in the box as shown in the photograph and use the back of a spoon to spread it out. (Don’t worry if there are cracks in the cakes when cooking. Once you put the jam on it’ll look just like Pooh’s face.)

     

    Slice the brown outer part of your thick-sliced Baumkuchen and shape into ears with your cutter. (If you don’t have a round cutter then scissors or any other cutters will work fine.)

     

    Drawn on Pooh’s facial features with your chocolate pen and you’re done!

    The jam makes the face viscous so it’s nice and easy to draw the face on even for beginners. If you mess up, just wake a short while for the chocolate to harden and take it off. If that happens just smooth out the jam once more with the back of a spoon so there aren’t any peaks and try again!

    Today, you’ll learn how to make Kiirotori Cup Sushi. Kiirotori is a small yellow bird who is often seen with Rilakkuma.

    1.
    Ingredients
    ★Transparent cups (the ones I used are from Daiso)
    ★Sumeshi (vinegared sushi rice)
    ★Ground sesame seeds, furikake seasoning (I used Decofuri’s orange and purple seasoning)
    ★Thick omelette
    ★Fresh fish of your choice

     

    2.
    Divide three portions of vinegared sushi rice and mix one each with the ground sesame seeds and Decofuri seasonings. Mix the Decofuri orange seasoning with some flying fish roe (tobikko) too.

     

    3.
    Create three layers of rice from step 2 in your transparent cups as shown above.

     

    4.
    Pile fresh fish of your choice onto the cups.

     

    5.
    Slice the thick omelette. I sliced mine into a Kiirotori shape but you can make whatever you like.

    Place your character omelette on top of your rice next to the fish. I was making Halloween themed sushi this time so I dressed it up with Halloween toothpicks and other decorations♡

    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!

  • Chawanmushi Recipe: Savoury Dessert Made With Carrots, Cream Cheese & Mirin

    31.July.2020 | FEATURES / FOOD

    Together with soy sauce and miso, mirin is a fundamental condiment in the Japanese kitchen and for many recipes for Japanese food. It’s a sweet rice wine that has lower alcohol content and higher sugar content when compared to sake, adding a sweet flavour to dishes.

     

    Today, we’re taking a look at a recipe that uses “Mikawa Mirin,” a brand of mirin made from high quality rice, to make carrot and cream cheese chawanmushi. Chawanmushi is a savoury egg custard dessert eaten in Japan.

     

    Carrot & Cream Cheese Chawanmushi

    Chawanmushi is made using mirin and has a smooth texture to it as well as a subtly sweet flavour. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a hot summer’s day.

     

    Ingredients (Serves 1)


    ●Chawanmushi
    60g carrots
    240ml dashi
    20ml soy sauce
    120ml Mikawa Mirin
    8g sugar
    18g cream cheese
    1 egg

     

    ●Okra-an
    Okra
    30ml dashi
    0.5g salt
    3ml Mikawa Mirin

     

    Method

    We will start by making the chawanmushi.

    1. Slice the carrots and boil them until they become soft.

    2. Add the soy sauce, sugar, and lots of mirin and cook through the dashi.

    3. Cook for approximately 20 minutes on a medium heat, then cool with ice. Add the cooled carrots, cream cheese, and 20ml of the dashi into a blender and bend.

    4. Add the egg to the mix and steam the mix for 12 minutes on a medium heat.

     

    While the chawanmushi is cooling, we’ll make the okra-an.

    5. Mix together the okra-an dashi, mirin, and salt together. Add watered potato starch and thinly sliced okra. Leave to cool in the refrigerator.

    6. Add the okra-an to the cooled chawanmushi and tuck into your cute two-layered dessert.

    Carrot & Cream Cheese Chawanmushi

    The dessert is an enjoyable mix of the sticky texture from the okra-an and smooth chawanmushi. It’s great to have not only at lunch or dinner, but at home parties with friends too.

     

    –How’s the taste?


    Misa Kimura: “It works really well with the mirin. The chawanmushi is like a sweet treat. It’s super easy to make too, so I think I’ll be making it at home!”

     

    Mirin is indispensable to any Japanese cupboard and can be used in many ways, whether it be a classic Japanese dish or a dessert like this one.

    Mikawa Mirin 700ml: ¥1,122 (Tax Included)

    This authentic brand of mirin is made using a traditional method of Japanese brewing which blends in the delicious taste of rice. It’s so delicious that you just want to drink the whole bottle. A high quality mirin, it has a distinct sweetness, colour, and texture. It has a rich flavour, and the taste of the rice elevates the flavours of its ingredients.

The sweets are also made with a dough called “nerikiri” which is used in making traditional Japanese wagashi sweets.

    The confection designs include the iconic Dragon Balls from the series up to Seven-Stars, as well as Shenron.

    Shenron is matcha-flavoured. Using nerikiri dough, Tabemas has brought the dragon god to life with his iconic red gaze, whiskers, and tail. Each of the seven Dragon Balls are filled with custard cream. One set of these confections comes with both Shenreon and one of the Dragon Balls, so fans can enjoy both flavours.

    As well as all of the seven Dragon Balls, there are two secrets ones too. What exactly they are requires a trip to FamilyMart.
