One more lovely discover in Japan. Did you know that Japanese have a complete different approach to sweet.
Most of the desserts are based on asuki paste, an, red bean paste. or are sweetened with sweet potato. it is a very interesting and new taste, of course very different from our European buds but once you have gone past this, it is actually delicious
Last week, as I was preparing to travel, my friend Akiko prepared 2 cakes for me that I could carry on the train
a steamed plum cake (yes steamed) and a chocolate and cinnamon – sweet potato cake, very very good, I have the recipes and will bake them, really such a nice discovery
