First experimenet with cherry blossom

with 12 comments

总觉得蜜红豆吃起来有股花香味,应该很适合樱花的花香。樱花带有一点点咸味,切碎了和crème fraîche拌在一起,和蜜红豆混合出一种微咸的蜜甜味。在烤好的meringue上,放上红豆和crème fraîche,真的很好看,自己舍不得吃啊。

I got some salted cherry blossom about one month ago, and alway thinking what should I do with these ting little flowers. On top of my list is cherry blossom cake, but I have been busy this month, and don’t want rush the cake, so I decided to try a simple dessert first.
Although I can’t remember what cherry blossom smells like, but when I open the package, it’s pops out, I knew that’s the smell of cherry blossom. At first, I was thinking lychee will go well with the blossom, then I realized maybe the flavor are too strong for that, so I use sweetened azuki bean instead, it’s has same flowery taste like lychee, but mild. I use homemade sweetened azuki bean, it’s less sweet than store bought. After the meringue baked, I soaked up the blossom, whipped some crème fraîche, add in chopped cherry blossom. Top the meringue with azuki bean and crème fraîche, it’s sweet, salty, tangy, crispy, creamy, and flowery at same time, lovely!
I’m very happy with my first cherry blossom experiment, and looking forward to have more fun.
