Japanese Mooncake - A Popular Delicacy

Japanese Mooncake – A Popular Delicacy

One of the most popular cakes in Japan is the Japanese mooncake. It is a very sweet and delicious cake made from a variety of Japanese sweets and eaten on New Year’s Day. The recipe has been passed down through the generations and is now available in the West as delicious cupcakes or two. It is quite simple to make and there are many recipes that you can find online if you are looking to try it for yourself. The Japanese mooncake usually contains two types of ingredients; mochi (rice cake) and uranium (red beans).

Uranami is sweeter than mochi but is more often used in recipes for mooncakes. Both of these are combined and rolled into a tight ball, then deep-fried until they become one solid piece. Once this is done it is spread with furikake (a sweetened rice cake coating), which gives the mooncake its distinctive shape.

You can make your Japanese mooncakes at home, although buying them pre-made is preferable, as you will save money. Just remember to follow the basic recipe as closely as possible. Sometimes this recipe will ask you to add canned beans to the batter, but you should be able to easily find these beans at your local Asian deli. Also, depending on how much cake you are making, it might not be necessary to bake the mooncakes in a round shape.
