Black Sesame Cream Jelly
I bought this book Okashi sweet treats made with love by the author Keiko Ishiha at Kinokuniya Book Store at 20% storewide for all books and I would like to recommend this book to anyone who has a love of baking that I am sure many bloggers already got this book 🙂 There are many simple and interesting recipes with step by step pictures, concise information on baking techniques and useful tips. I have bookmarked many recipes in this book that I am going to try it out one by one. The first recipe I chose is a cool dessert Black Sesame Cream Jelly (western pastries with a Japanese touch), the texture of this dessert is very smooth with a strong flavor of black sesame in it and I have made this twice in one week ;D
Here is the recipe
300g Full fresh cream milk
50g Black sesame paste
35g Castor sugar
5g Gelatin sheets (2 sheets) – soaked in ice water to soften
40g Whipping cream
- In a small bowl combine some milk (from 300g) with sesame paste and mix well.
- Then combine balance milk, sesame paste and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
- Add in softened gelatin sheets follow by whipping cream. Mix well.
- Pass the mixture through a sift (this is an extra step I’ve made because there is a thin layer of oil on top of the mixture) into 4 – 6 small cups and chill in the refrigerator until set.
Compare to the picture of Okashi the dessert has a beautiful greyish white color but my black sesame cream jelly is very dark grey in color maybe I’ve used the different brand of black sesame paste and this is the only brand I can find here.

Every book sweet-related call my attention! This black dessert looks different for the sesame – I wonder if 1 portion is enough for me 🙂

Huhm , I have just tried some of the recipes only but really like them .

noonionplease ~ yes the taste is exactly the same as black sesame.
Biren ~ Have a try. How about using agar agar powder instead of gelatin?
Hi Ancoo, howdya do gurl!!
Creamy and delicious ,loving it!!
good deal on the book looks cool, new to me
Only recently did I see black sesame powder at the Asian grocery store. I am not sure if they have the paste. I am curious about the taste.
Your black sesame jelly looks really interesting. It must be delicious too. Perhaps I can use that sesame powder instead of the paste.
Wow! That looks pretty intriguing! It is so rare to see black – greyish desserts, but even though one doesn't really connect those colours with desserts it looks really delicious!
I have never tasted black seasam – is it similar to normal sesam?
这好特别耶…你不说, 看起来好象龟铃膏那样. 听说做月子吃黑芝麻很补哦我要去韩国或日本商店找看看有没有黑芝麻膏了!
I like black sesame, but it's not easy to get black sesame paste, your dessert looks great, I hope I can get that book also 🙂
I haven't got any chance to have a look at the cookbook. Thanks for sharing. Love the new idea of using black sesame in making jelly.
How beautifully delicious and different! I have a blog award for you if you would like to stop by my blog, when you have time. 🙂
