Japanese Fruit Mochi Strawberry Ichigo “Kubota” Daifuku Sweet Rice Cake

First up, we have this mouth-watering Japanese sweet rice cake – the “Kubota” Daifuku Sweet Rice Cake. It’s soft, chewy, and oh-so-satisfying. Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

  • 1 cup sweet rice flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • cornstarch for dusting
  • Fresh strawberries
  • Anko (sweet red bean paste)

Now let’s get started with the instructions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the sweet rice flour, sugar, and water. Mix until well combined.
  2. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and microwave for 2 minutes.
  3. Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir the mixture with a spatula.
  4. Cover the bowl again and microwave for an additional 1 minute.
  5. Dust your work surface with cornstarch and transfer the mixture onto it.
  6. Knead the mixture until it becomes smooth and shiny. Divide into small pieces, about 20 grams each.
  7. Press each piece into a flat circle. Place a small amount of anko and one strawberry in the center and wrap the dough around it, pinching the edges to seal well.
  8. Dust the mochi with cornstarch and serve immediately.

Next up, we have a lovely and oh-so-Instagrammable dessert that I just can’t get enough of: Pink Strawberry Food. Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pound strawberries, sliced
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water

And here are the steps for putting it all together:

  1. In a mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  2. In another mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract and beat until well combined.
  3. Slowly add the whipped cream to the cream cheese mixture and gently fold until combined.
  4. Divide the mixture into small ramekins or serving dishes and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  5. In a saucepan, combine the sliced strawberries, granulated sugar, and water. Bring the mixture to a boil and reduce the heat to low. Simmer until the strawberries are softened, about 10-15 minutes.
  6. In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch and cold water until well combined. Add the mixture to the strawberry mixture and bring to a boil, stirring constantly until thickened.
  7. Serve the strawberry compote over the chilled cream mixture and garnish with fresh strawberries, if desired.
