"Ichigo Daifuku" Rice Cake with Strawberry

Daifuku 大福 is a representative Japanese confection consisting of a small round mochi (glutinous rice cake) stuffed with red bean paste.

There are some variations. Mame Daifuku 豆大福 is consisting of red marrowfat peas mixed into mochi and Yomogi Daifuku 蓬大福 is consisting of mochi  flavored with mugwort.


This is Anzu Daifuku consisting of semi dried apricot mixed into mochi.  The flavor of apricot matches with sweet red bean paste, though you can't believe it.

Ichigo Daifku いちご大福 is a variation containing strawberry and sweetened white kidney bean paste inside a small round mochi. It tells you that spring has come.

By the way, Ichigo means strawberry in Japanese.

  1. Wow, I love them all :) And strawberry fields are already red.

  2. I prefer Ichigo Daifuku with white bean paste to one with red bean paste. There are a lot of strawberry sold at market and I am going to buy lots to make confiture with vanille. Strawberry fields are located in your neighbor? Only a farm for tourists is around here.
