Japanese water cake


I’m talking about the Japanese water cake. Oh, you probably cannot imagine how a cake can be made of water, right? To answer this question, let’s have a look at this ‘crystal’ (that’s how I call it hehe) and I swear this Japanese water cake looks and tastes unlike any dessert you’ve tried before 😉 .

I had a chance to try the water cake in a Japanese restaurant in Hanoi and it’s absolutely impressed me. It looks like a large drop of water, but it’s actually a cake. This Japanese invention is as delicate as it looks and sounds, but it needs to be consumed in only 30 minutes, after which it will simply turn into a sweet puddle of water.

This water cake is perfectly transparent which absolutely impress me when I first saw it. It is made of water sourced from the Southern Japanese Alps, lightly sweetened, and solidified just enough to give it a definite shape. That’s why it’s called mizu (water) shingen mochi’.

You can see that it looks like a crystal but so smooth and melts in your mouth. It has a pleasant natural sweetness that I cannot describe how awesome it tastes. Add the rich kinako powder and brown sugar syrup and it goes incredibly smoothly down your throat.
