Daifuku is a type of traditional Japanese sweets.
It’s usually sticky mochi stuffed with sweet bean paste inside.
Sometime people like to add fruit inside along with the bean paste, and strawberry is probably the most popular one.
I happened to have beautifu fresh pineapple, so I decided to make the pineapple version, too.
The Daifuku mochi is pretty easy to make when you use a microwave oven.
Aren’t they adorable?
They are so smooth, just like baby’s butts!
I wasn’t sure how the pineapple version would turn out, but I really liked it, as its tartness goes well with the sweet beans.
It’s really refreshing.
My pink Sashiko (Japanese traditional embroidery) cloth looks perfect in this picture.
