I filled sakura-mochi with strawberries in the style of strawberry daifuku confections.
I wanted some treats to celebrate the Doll Festival holiday! I couldn't decide between sakuramochi or strawberry daifuku, so borrowing from the best of both, I came up with this!
A tiny amount of food coloring will produce an elegant, pale sakura color.I used a non-stick frying pan on an induction stove top. An electric griddle should also work.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
