Mochiko Butter Cake and Melon Sherbet for Y


It was a bit intimidating when I thought about sending these questionnaire to Y of Lemonpi, I was afraid that her favorite dessert would be something ultra sophisticated and need a super  high arty patisserie skill, but I guess Y is one of those down under to earth lady who knows that most of the time, simple is delicious 🙂

So for Y, I made  mochiko butter cake to go with melon sherbet, garnished with ice longans and watermelon, hope she’ll like it 🙂

Y has also a delicious watermelon sherbet recipe that you can drool over.


These are Y’s favorites…

Favorite kitchen gadget : Heat proof rubber spatula, microplane grater, my little yellow toaster (for breakfast every morning)

Favorite drinks : Jasmine tea, green tea

Favorite desserts : I love them all. Lately have been eating a lot of mochi cake and ice-cream at home. Great combination.

Herbs/Spices : Shisso, curry leaf, coriander / cinnamon, vanilla, cardamom, ginger

Fruits : non-astringent persimmons, cherries, watermelon, blueberries, pomegranates,
Imperial mandarins, custard apples, longans, pomelos.
