You can read more about that here in my pink ribbons of hope post.
This year I wanted to create a recipe in honor of those struggling with breast cancer, survivors of breast cancer, loved ones we have lost, and all the friends and family who are affected by this disease.
The recipe I'm sharing is a Japanese dessert or sweet treat, that is prepared for celebrations, parties or to gift giving.
October is a celebration of hope, hope for a cure. Wouldn't you agree this is the perfect dessert to celebrate with?
This recipe has been adapted from a recipe a friend of mine gave me many years ago. I do not know where she got the original recipe from, whether it was from a cookbook or her family. The original recipe called for more water and less coconut milk, it also recommended coating the product in kinako (a sweet soy flour). Since I did not have accessibility to kinako, I used a mixture of cornstarch and powdered sugar(confectioners sugar).
I hope you have the opportunity to prepare this recipe in honor and celebration of breast cancer awareness month. Together we can raise awareness and never give up hope for a cure.
I would love to hear how you are spreading awareness and/or share some photos links with me on social media. I always love hearing from you!
In case you, or someone you know is in need of more information, here are some links to organizations that support Breast Cancer, offer support and awareness:
Susan G Komen
Breast Cancer Action
Living Beyond Breast Cancer
American Cancer Society
Until next time...
Hugs to you and yours,
