Sakuramochi / Japanese Sweets

Bookmark and Share
Sakuramochi (桜餅) is a variety of wagashi, or Japanese confectionery consisting of a sweet pink mochi (rice cake) and red bean paste, covered with a leaf of sakura (cherry blossom).

The style of sakuramochi differs from the regions in Japan. Basically, the east of Japan such as Tokyo uses shiratama-ko (白玉粉, rice flour) and the west side such as Kansai uses dōmyōji-ko (道明寺粉, glutinous rice flour) for batter.

This recipe is for making Western-style sakuramochi. Serves 8.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup glutinous rice flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup red bean paste
  • red food coloring (optional)
  • 8 sakura leaves pickled in salted water

Preparation

Wash pickled sakura leaves and dry. Boil water in a pan. Mix glutinous flour in the water. Cover the pan with a lid and leave it for 5 minutes. Place a wet cloth in a steamer and put the dough on the cloth.

Steam the dough for about 20 minutes over medium heat. Remove the steamed dough to a bowl. Mash the dough slightly with a wooden pestle, mixing sugar into the dough. Dissolve a little bit of red food color in some water. Add some of the red water in the dough and mix well. Divide the pink mochi into 8 balls.

Flatten each mochi ball by hand and place red bean paste filling on the dough. Wrap the filling with mochi and round by hand. Wrap each mochi with a sakura leaf.
