I Made Manju!


WHAAAAT??!!  I know . . . I made manju! First time! And was good!

Leslie gave me some pumpkin butter manju about a month ago, and it was so ono that I kept craving it. I asked her for the recipe even though I was thinking that it probably was too hard for me.

I decided to make it for Thanksgiving and was totally shocked that it came out.

Dean, yah, it's wonderful!

Aunty, me too . . . easy and ono works!

K Mich. Couldn't find pumpkin butter so got almond butter instead. Gotta get the tsubushian and I'll be good for another batch.

Instead of pumpkin/almond butter, do you have any other suggestions to use? What other pairings go well with tsubushian ?

jalna said...

Julie, I bought some almond butter from Whole Foods but haven't tried it yet. A friend suggested that I use half the amount since it's lacking the pumpkin and might end up being too oily.

Jenny, I got mine from Leslie. She said that Williams and Sonoma has it. I made another batch and used almond butter instead and came out good too.

It was good, Mmiissee. I hope you get to make some!
