Ichigo daifuku in robin's egg blue

Dedicated to the new Spring, I offer up Robin's egg blue ichigo daifuku. Dazee was sore, 'cuz I ate up all the strawberry mochi from last week and didn't save him any! I still had some anko left, and of course we have lots of strawberries still, so these whipped up in about 10 minutes from start to finish!
Next time I make these, I'm going to play with flavoring the mochi with extract, rose water or coconut milk. Also, I changed the earlier recipe, these only need to cook for a total of four minutes in my microwave.
Dazee will be lucky if he gets any of these too.
Here's the link to the recipe:

    how about lavender flavor with meyer lemon filling? I just made some meyer lemon cookies with lavender frosting (lavender sugar in mix) and the flavor combo rocks!

  2. I wouldn't take your snack-y cake away from you - you look like you'd stab me with your fork! :)
    I hope they have some fresh wild strawberries at the farmer's market soon soon soon.

  10. I love that picture of you :o) And the mochi looks fabulous. I've long loved mochi with a black sesame filling. Now I know how to make the dough. Lookout kitchen -- here I come! Thanks Kittee! By the way, where can I get that vegan meringue you posted on here a while back? I want to make cocoa pavlova...

  13. thanks for the mochi love, everyone. i cooked up some aduki beans for my pooch, but may steal his to make more anko since i picked up another half flat of berries yesterday. plus dazee went away for two days, so i can make a bunch without have to share! seriously, these are so easy to make, especially if you pick up some pre-made anko (the brand i purchased was free of artificial ingredients and came in a plastic bag).

    doodleyboo: i don't think i posted about meringue here? are you talking about my flickr pictures? anyway, the meringue you may have seen is a work in progress, though susie tofu monster (from the ppk) will be releasing her recipe soon-soon-soon.

    ppv: i saw your berry pie blog last night and commented, it looked super delish.

  14. Thanks for the reply Kittee :o) I think I must have been thinking of your Flickr photos when I was thinking of the meringue.
