Although Christmas is ‘really not’ an official holiday here in Japan, no matter where you are, Christmas seem to be the most enjoyable time for any child; a time for family gathering, a time for giving, a time for gratitude and for all – our wishes for our children to remember the ‘gift of giving’.

Baking “Christmas Stollen” has become my personal calendar event before Xmas after settling down to my homeland, Japan. However when I lived in Ireland during my young days, ‘Christmas Cake’, a fruit cake heavily packed with fruit and nuts, covered entirely in marzipan to mature until Xmas was the iconic cake for Christmas.

A subtle savor of peach from the peach compote made earlier this month has been making our yoghurts better every morning. The blood red color, vivid is an eye opener plus the natural sweetness seem to help the languid summer body for a fresh new day. 先日作った「小桃のコンポート」は朝食のヨーグルトに大活躍しています。鮮明な色素と桃の独特な香りは目覚めの朝には最高のコンビネーションです。そんな色素をみて、昔綺麗に作り上げたマーブルケーキを思い出し早速この小桃のコンポートをケーキにしてみました。 Looking at that vivid peach color, I recalled […]

Merry Christmas! to my blog readers, still some areas enjoying Christmas day or whatever is left of it. We, here in Tokyo are finishing up Christmas Day
A couple of months ago, I’ve posted this ‘Invisible Cake’ which turned out to be a ‘Visible Cake’ .

Trying to get back into the baking mode. ‘July 17th Sunday Bakery’, which most will be sent to my parent’s house where then be collected by my sister and brother and into the different avenues, stomach of my nieces and nephew. (lol)
Time flies…… Time flies so fast quite unbelievable and our grandson is already ‘ONE’ today to celebrate his very first birthday.
Every year for Christmas, when I used to live in Ireland; our family would prepare a Christmas Cake or a Christmas Pudding at least a month before in Xmas wrapped in brown paper for the 25th to come. These customs remain strong in my childhood memories
Making ‘Marron Glacé’ used to be an yearly seasonal personal event of mine but over the years I was not able to do this every autumn with family events concentrating during the same timing.
