  • 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.

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Keroppi Matcha Pound Cake at Home

    18.April.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, we’ll be combining bitter matcha with anko red bean paste to create a delicious matcha cake. Each ingredient its mixed in sequence, so as long as you follow the recipe tips, you’re sure to have your very own moist and tasty pound cake by the end of it.

     

    Ingredients (Makes One 18cm Pound Cake)

    100g butter (room temperature)

    90g granulated sugar

    2 large eggs (room temperature)

    100g wheat flour

    5g Uji matcha powder

    4g baking powder

    Anko to taste

     

    Making Keroppi’s Face

    Eyes: Sliced White Chocolate

    Eyes & Mouth: Sliced Chocolate

    Cheeks: Strawberries

    Check out my video from this article for tips where I made Keroppi’s face: https://www.moshimoshi-nippon.jp/ja/41842

     

    1:

    Bring the butter to room temperature. Slowly add the granulated sugar to the butter while beating air into the mixture with a hand whisk until it turns a whitish colour and fluffy.

     

    2:

    Beat an egg and bring to room temperature. Slowly pour into the mixture from Step 1 while mixing with the hand mixer. If you add it all or too much at once the egg will separate.

     

    3:

    Sieve flour and mix and incorporate that, the matcha powder, and baking powder into the mixture.

     

    4:

    Remove half of the mixture. Add the anko red bean paste into the remaining mixture, and then re-add the mixture you removed like a lid. Flatten the mixture’s surface. Bake in the oven at 170° for approximately 40 minutes. If it starts burning at any point, cover with aluminium foil.

     

    5:

    Once cooked, leave to cool a bit. Then wrap tightly while it is still warm. Leave to rest like this for about a day and your cake will be super moist and delicious.

    I didn’t take any step-by-step photos this time around, but if you follow the instructions I promise you’ll have a really tasty cake at the end. Try it yourself!

    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 Strawberry Milk Chocolate Pudding, a delicious recipe whipped up with love for Valentine’s Day.

     

    Ingredients

    ✩Ingredients For Chocolate Pudding
    35g chocolate
    300ml milk
    30g-35g granulated salt
    5g gelatine (dissolved in 1 tbsp water)

     

    ✩Ingredients For Strawberry Pudding
    100g strawberries (fresh or frozen)
    350ml milk
    30g-35g granulated salt
    5g gelatine (dissolved in 1 tbsp water)

    Weck jars for the dessert.

     

    1

    First, we’ll make the chocolate pudding.

     

    Put the milk and granulated sugar into a pot and heat on the hob until the sugar melts. Turn the heat off, throw in the chocolate, and allow to fully melt. Once melted and the mixture is cooled, add the gelatine to dissolve.

     

    2

    Now, we’ll make the strawberry pudding.

     

    Put the milk and granulated sugar into a pot and heat on the hob until the sugar melts.

    Add the mix to a blender with the strawberries and blitz. Add back onto the hob and heat through slightly. Allow the mixture to cool then add the gelatine to dissolve.

     

    3

    Once both mixtures are completely cooled, add them to the jars in an alternating pattern and chill until set.

    ⚠️Make sure the dessert is completely set and not runny before serving. About an hour each in the refrigerator should be sufficient.

    Top with cream and strawberries and enjoy!
