Tea and cake are a perfect pairing for an afternoon snack in many countries. In Japan, kasutera is a popular sponge cake, derived from the Portuguese castela cake. Originally introduced to Japan by Portuguese sailors in the port town of Nagasaki, Kasutera is now a specialty of the city. Soft, spongy and sweet, kasutera cake can be flavored with almost anything… matcha green tea, peach, honey, even gold foil! During the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, it is common to serve sweet treats alongside matcha green tea. Here’s our recipe for a honey-flavored kasutera cake. What flavor will you make?

A Sweet Japanese Treat

Mitarashi dango is a delicious treat found in street vendors throughout Japan. Dango are balls of rice flour that take on a dumpling-like consistency when cooked. First they’re boiled and then placed on a skewer to be grilled. Once grilled, they’re covered with the sweet mitarashi sauce, which is made up of soy sauce and sugar. So simple, yet so delicious!
