雨滴饼是美国纽约正在流行一种新的食物，它起源于日本，在日本被称作“信玄水麻糬”(Mizu Shingen Mochi)或者樱花果冻。雨滴饼长得就如同它的名字一样，形状宛如一颗巨大的雨滴。这种饼由水和用海产石花菜做成的琼脂制作而成，素食者用琼脂来替代凝胶，你可以就着黑糖和黄豆粉一起吃。
If you’re thinking that this is a giant water droplet on a plate, guess again. It’s actually Mizu Shingen Mochi, a new Japanese rice cake that certainly tricks our eyes but is supposedly delicious. It even uses water harnessed from the Japanese Alps! The makers of this dessert say that it tastes like a traditional mochi, which is sweet and usually sprinkled with soybean powder and paired with brown syrup.
It looks like a large drop of water, but it’s actually a cake. This Japanese invention is as delicate as it looks and sounds, but it needs to be consumed in only 30 minutes, after which it will simply turn into a sweet puddle of water. So it needs to be consumed in the company’s shops and cannot be ordered ‘to go’.
The water cake looks like a large bowl of jelly without the color. This delicate sweet is perfect for spring~plus it is sakura season now in Japan.
