The carefully prepared recipe retains as much of the sweet potato flavour as possible, creating a new kind of glorious flavour.

     

    Plain (¥129)

    Purple Sweet Potato (¥140)

    The dough is kneaded with sweet potato powder and then baked. It is then covered with a purple sweet potato glaze. Just seeing the purple coating is enough to make your mouth water. 

     

    Candied Sweet Potato (¥140)

    This doughnut is also kneaded with sweet potato powder. Once baked, it is covered with a sweet potato honey glaze and black sesame seeds. 

     

    Sweet Potato (¥140)

    The Sweet Potato Doughnut is made by kneading the dough with sweet potato powder. After it has been baked, it is topped with sweet potato paste and black sesame seeds. This is perfect for those of you with a particularly sweet sweet tooth.

     

    Brown Sugar Syrup and Kinako Powder (¥140)

    If you are looking for a Japanese-style twist on a western style confection, then this doughnut is for you. After the doughnut batter is kneaded with sweet potato powder and baked, it is soaked in delicious brown sugar syrup and then sprinkled with kinako (roasted soybean powder) and sugar. 

     

    These new doughnut varieties are filled with the scrumptious flavours of autumn so please try them out.
