Japanese-style Desserts (Wagashi) 469 recipes

Wagashi highlights the unique colors and flavors of seasonal ingredients. In the springtime, you may serve a pink-hued dessert inspired by cherry blossoms, while chilled desserts would be preferred during the humid summer months. Autumn foliage is a popular decorative motif from late September to November, and warmed treats are a traditional way of welcoming guests into your home when the mercury drops. If you are able to obtain ingredients like matcha (powdered green tea), kuromitsu (black sugar syrup), kinako (roasted soybean flour), or any variety of rice flour, you could modify your usual dessert recipes for a Wagashi fusion!
