“Tokachi-kawanishi Nagaimo Chiffon Maple” is produced by “Rokkatei”, a confectionery maker in Hokkaido.
“Tokachi-kawanishi Nagaimo” is a kind of yam made in the Tokachi region in Hokkaido. The large temperature difference between day and night makes the yam smooth and snow-white with a viscous texture.
The unique thing about chiffon cakes is that they are made without leavening. The yam acts as a rising agent, producing the fluffy yet firm texture.
The phrase on the box, “The best product made with the best conscience”, shows their motto of food safety first.
This fluffy and moist chiffon contains high-quality maple syrup from Canada.
Each cake is sold at 500 yen.
When I opened the box, unforgettable fragrance of maple syrup surrounded me.
The cake was amazingly fluffy and chewy, maple syrup adding a mild sweetness and aroma.
The cake and tea go hand-in-hand.
Kids too will love this gentle flavor. It is a reasonably priced but keep in mind of the short shelf life when gifting it.
