13 Easy Japanese Desserts to Make at Home: Don’t Count The Calories!

In Japanese cuisine, traditional sweets are called wagashi that are made with different ingredients like red bean paste and mochi.

Besides the traditional ones, there are many modern Japanese sweets that can easily take place in the list of your guilty pleasure.

 Japanese traditional sweets wagashi

As it’s not possible to discuss each of the Japanese desserts at once, I will only talk about those that are popular and easy to make.

Okay, now pick up your mixing bowl and try to recreate any of the below dishes that you like.

1. Mochi

Mochi is one of the delicious, cute Japanese treats that is soft and chewy. It is also a Japanese new year dessert that both grown-ups and kids like to eat.

Japanese style mochi

Although this glutinous rice cake is tasty on its own, you can enhance its taste by using a variety of fillings.

Alright, let’s move on to the recipe.

Servings: 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of mochiko (sweet rice flour).
  • 2 cups of sugar.
  • ¾ cup of water.
  • Cornstarch for dusting the dough.
Ingredients for making mochi

Steps:

1. Combine the flour with water in a bowl till it becomes a soft dough. Add more water if it’s dry.

2. Steam the dough for around 20 minutes.

3. Transfer the mochi (or dough) to a pot at medium to medium-low heat and add 1/3 of the sugar until it’s completely dissolved. Then mix another third and do the same till the sugar is melted into the mochi.

It may seem like a lot of sugar, but it is important to make the mochi soft and chewy. You can lessen the amount of sugar in case you serve it right away.

4. After the mixture is soft, sticky, and shiny, move it to a tray dusted with cornstarch. Be careful with the dough since it is hot. You should dust your hand with some cornstarch to prevent burning while handling the mixture.

5. You can shape it to any form and put different types of fillings inside as per your taste. The most famous filling is red bean paste.

6. Also, you may add green tea powder with the dough to transfer it to a matcha-flavored mochi.

You can cut the mochi into tiny pieces or wrap them with strawberries to give it a fruity twist. A popular way to enjoy mochi is by wrapping ice cream with it and making a mochi ice cream.

Once you try it out, you are going to relish this Japanese mochi dessert for a long time.

2. Mitarashi Dango

For red bean paste:

Tsubu-an (sweet Azuki paste).

Steps:

Dango making process:

1. Mix the flour, tofu, and sugar together and knead until it forms a dough.

2. Adjust the texture by adding flour or water to make it as soft as the earlobe.

3. Then, divide the dough into 12 parts.

4. Roll each of them into small ping-pong-sized balls (dango).

5. Now, bring a large pot of water to boil and gently put the dango into it. A few minutes later, you will see that the dangos’ are floating. After that, you need to keep boiling them for another minute.

6. Remove the balls from the boiling water and drown them in cold water. After a minute, drain them well.

7. Put 3 to 4 dango on each skewer.

8. Fry them on a pan until each side is light brown.

Mitarashi sauce making process:

1. Mix up all the mentioned ingredients together in a pot.

2. Cook the mixture on low heat and constantly stir until the sauce comes to a syrup-like consistency.

Finally, brush the sauce on top of the dango and garnish it with sweet red bean paste. I recommend you to use tsubu-an because of its chunky texture. But, if you don’t like it, then you may skip it.

I like to eat this sweet and savory dessert with a cup of hot green tea as it balances the taste.

6. Japanese Cheesecake

Japanese cheesecake is one of the desserts that I can’t stay away from. The fluffy cotton-like texture melts in my mouth and makes all of my worries disappear in a moment.

Jiggly Japanese cotton cheesecake

It’s not the usual cheesecake but a mixture of airy souffle and cheesy goodness.

Alright, it’s time to bake our fluffy and jiggly cheesecake.

Servings: 4

Ingredients:

  • 100 gm butter.
  • 100 gm cream cheese.
  • ½ cup (130 ml) milk.
  • 8 egg yolks.
  • 13 egg whites.
  • 60 gm flour.
  • 60 gm cornstarch.
  • 130 gm sugar.
Ingredients for Japanese cheesecake

Steps:

1. Mix the cream cheese, butter, and milk into a pot and cook it over low heat. Keep stirring until they blend in a smooth and thick consistency.

2. Whisk the egg yolks and pour the prepared mixture into them.

3. Sift the cornstarch and flour over the batter and gently stir until it’s smooth and shiny.

4. Whip the egg whites in another bowl till soft peaks form. Then, add sugar and keep whisking until the meringue looks like foam. I suggest you gradually pour the sugar into 3 parts to ensure all the sugar is dissolved into the meringue finely.

5. Mix the meringue into the batter little by little, quarter parts at a time. Be gentle while mixing the batter, as the fluffiness of your cheesecake depends on the amount of air inside the blend. So, if you use too much pressure, the cake will come out flat instead of fluffy.

6. Now, transfer the batter into a greased baking pan with parchment paper, and tap it against the counter to remove air bubbles inside.

7. Place the baking pan on a wider baking dish and fill up the outer tray with hot water until it reaches about 2cm high.

8. Bake the cake in a preheated oven for 25 minutes at 160 degrees Celsius. Then reduce the heat to 140 degrees Celsius and bake for another 55 minutes.

9. Once the cheesecake is baked, carefully remove it from the pan and place it on a plate.

7. Mizu Shingen Mochi (Raindrop Cake)

Mizu Shingen mochi, known as the raindrop cake, is a Japanese treat that looks like a large water ball.

Mizu Shingen Mochi

The raindrop cake looks really pretty if you put a sakura flower inside.

Wait! Wait!

Are you worried about eating Sakura?

Well, you shouldn’t because it’s safe to eat a few varieties of cherry blossom.

Anyway, the raindrop cake is typically paired with kuromitsu (black sugar syrup) and kinako (powdered roasted soybean), but you can add any toppings according to your preference.

Raindrop cake with kuromitsu and kinako

As the main ingredient of this dessert is water, I recommend using bottled mineral water to get clear water drops.

Serving: 1

Ingredients:

  • 8 gm agar-agar powder.
  • 10 gm granulated sugar.
  • 250 ml water.
  • 10 gm cherry blossoms (optional).
  • Kuromitsu.
  • Kinako.
  • Ground peanut powder (optional).
Ingredients for raindrop cake

Steps:

1. Mix the agar-agar powder with the sugar in a pot and pour water into it. Then place the pot on high heat. When the water starts simmering, lower the heat and let it simmer for 2 minutes.

2. Chill the liquid in an ice bath for 3 minutes.

3. Pour the mixture into an ice ball mold. You may put cherry blossoms in each portion to make them extra attractive.

4. Put the mold in the fridge for an hour.

5. Then, take it out from the fridge and serve with kuromitsu syrup on top and kinako on the side.

Don’t feel down if you fail to get the perfect raindrop on the first try. Measurement of each ingredient plays a significant role in this recipe, and you need to try a few times to achieve the perfect jiggly and melty texture.

And the most important thing is that you have to consume the cakes within 30 minutes before they turn back into a pool of water!
