240ml Heavy Cream
4 Thin Slices Shokupan Bread
TRADITIONAL JAPANESE RECIPE: In Western cuisine, most sandwiches are savory rather than sweet, but in Japan, fruit sandwiches are a popular sweet treat. They’re made with whipped cream and fresh fruit between two slices of sandwich bread without the crust.
This is not an everyday Japanese food, but people like to eat it from time to time.
Popular fruit options include strawberry, kiwi, banana, and mango. Apart from the fresh and good quality fruit available in Japan, the bread used for these sandwiches is very moist and soft. This special type of Japanese bread is called "shokupan" or milk bread. The soft and fluffy texture of the bread enhances the flavor of the fruit sandwich.
Strawberries are the most popular fruit sando filling. In fact, this type of sandwiches is sometimes referred to as "Ichigo Sando" (Strawberry Sandwich) instead of being called fruit sandwiches.
What makes this Japanese snack so special is the combination of fresh fruit and soft milky bread. When making them yourself, the important part is to choose your bread and fruit carefully.
