  • About

This milk jelly looks similar to tofu, hence the name ‘Sweet Tofu’. It’s usually served with a plain sugar syrup, but adding the hojicha gives a pleasant hint of smokiness and a subtle caramel flavour.

Ingredients

Fresh

  • 400 ml (14 fl oz) full-cream (whole) milk
  • 200 ml (7 <

Method

Place the gelatine sheets in a bowl of water and leave to soak for 10 minutes.

Pour the milk into a small saucepan and set it over medium heat to warm the milk. Remove from the heat and stir in the almond extract.

Remove the gelatine sheets from the water. Squeeze them to remove any excess water, then add them to the milk and mix until they are completely dissolved.
