I received a surprise package around my birthday. At first I wondered what I ordered and then forgot about! It was the nicest box of treats from Carol. The Happy Birthday Assortment of Japanese desserts from Kyotofu included Matcha Green Tea Cupcakes, Miso Chocolate Brownies and shortbread. Needless to say, we dug in.
The cupcake has a great crumb, and I have one in the freezer for breakfast this week. Kyotofu makes modern Japanese desserts with tofu. I don’t know if that’s what makes them so moist, but they were delicious. The little brownies with sesame seats were just the right chocolate and nice and fudgey.
And the beauty is this place is right up the street in Hell’s Kitchen. I know I’ve walked by it, too. Why haven’t I stopped in before, that is the question.
