Fira Japans Internationella barndag (den 5 maj) på det traditionella viset, genom att äta dessa två sensationella wagashisötsaker (klassiska japanska sötsaker), som vanligtvis avnjuts på Internationella barndagen. De består av en söt riskaka (kashiwamochi) inslagen i ett ekblad, samt en dorayakipannkaka formad som en koinoborikarp. Se upp så att du inte ger bort allihop till barnen – de är så goda att du kommer att vilja behålla några för dig själv.


for kashiwamochi
200g smooth red bean paste
200g joshinko non-glutinous rice flour
280ml water
8 oak leaves

for dorayaki
150g smooth red bean paste
100g pancake mix
1 egg
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp mirin
70ml milk

Så här gör du

  1. Start by making the kashiwamochi. Mix the joshinko rice flour and water together in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover the bowl and microwave on full heat for 4 minutes. Mix again and microwave for a further 3 minutes. The resulting dough should be quite solid.

  2. Knead the dough until it is soft, then split into eight flat, circular pieces. Your dough should look like bread dough at this stage.

  3. Divide the red bean paste into eight equal portions. Place one portion onto each piece of dough, then fold the dough over and press around the edges to seal. Allow the dough to cool down, then wrap up in an oak leaf.

  4. Now to make the dorayaki. Whisk the egg, sugar, honey and mirin together. Add half of the milk, whisk that through, then repeat with the rest of the milk. Sieve the pancake mix into the mixture while whisking constantly. You should end up with a smooth pancake batter.

  5. Heat up a frying pan, grease with a little vegetable oil, and add enough batter to make a circle about 20-25cm in diameter. Allow to cook for a 2-3 minutes, or until small bubbles form on the surface. The underside should be a smooth honey brown colour. Flip over and cook for a further 1-2 minutes, then set aside. Repeat until all batter has been used. You should have approx. 2-3 pancakes.

  6. Divide red bean paste equally between the prepared pancakes. Place one portion of paste along the middle of each pancake, then roll the pancake up. Make sure the rolled edge is facing the bottom so that the pancake does not unravel.

  7. Cut each pancake in half across. To decorate, heat up a metal skewer (being very careful as you do so) and lightly scorch koinobori eyes and scales along the pancake. Enjoy.

Tips och information

- The oak leaves for the kashiwamochi are for decoration and should not be eaten.
- Why not try different fillings for a less traditional sweet? Mochi cakes are delicious with chestnut paste, ganache, and coconut fillings. Dorayaki work well with custard and matcha cream fillings.
