Japanese berry fruits sandwich.

Japanese fruit sando sandwich with whipped cream ricotta cheese raspberries and blueberries in white bread presented on a Noritake dish by kurumicooks delicious easy to make Japanese Asian and Fusion foods for your kitchen

Here's my latest Japanese fruit sandwich - raspberries and blueberries held in a layer of sweet whipped cream and ricotta cheese. These "sando" really should carry a public health warning as they're completely addictive! Japanese sando are simplicity itself to make - 15 minutes and they're done and ready to gobble up.

If you want the presentational look of the ones in the picture, the trick is to fill the sandwiches with fruit but leave a cross shape in the middle of your slice of bread (about the width of 2 berries). after you've cut your sandwiches into quarters, you then push more fruit into the cream along the edge of the cut.

If you're not so bothered about the appearance, just fill them completely with fruit, then slice - they won't look quite so attractive but they will taste every bit as good. Serve at teatime, coffee time - actually just anytime you fancy a fruity treat. My only other tip is to resist overfilling your sandwich. An authentic Japanese sando isn't stuffed to bursting point - the idea is to retain the shape and proprtion of a traditional sandwich.

ps: Kids absolutely love these, so they make a great party platter as well. You can find the written recipe just below and for the youtube tutorial click Japanese berry fruit sandwich or scroll to the bottom of the page.

Happy cooking! Kurumi XXXX.

Japanese Berry fruit Sandwich


(makes 2 sandwiches)

4 thin slices of soft white bread

70g blueberries, rinsed

120g raspberries, rinsed

130ml whipping cream

2 tbsp ricotta

1 tbsp sugar


how to:

whisk the cream until it holds firm peaks

add the ricotta & sugar, then whisk again briefly to mix

cut the crusts from the bread

spread 1/4 of the cream onto each slice

place the raspberries & blueberries on one slice but leave a cross shape in the middle - about the width of 2 berries side by side

place one slice on top of the other, press lightly enough to form your sandwich but not so hard that the filling oozes out from the edges

carefully slice the sandwich into quarters

open the sandwich and set each quarter on end to expose the sides without fruit

if you want the best decorative effect, push more whole berries into the cream

your berry fruit sandwiches are ready. these are an ideal teatime accompaniment to a cup of tea or coffee
