How to Make Ramen Cake - Video Recipe

Lately, my darling shared with me a newspaper article (Nikkei MJ 2013/4/17 issue - I know it is pretty old. lol) about the cake shop that sells "Ramen Cake" and I thought I want to make one for myself :D

However, it was not that easy…
I tried it for 3 times to get this perfect result.

I hope you enjoy it :)

FYI Failed version is in the end.

Ramen Cake

Difficulty: Patience
Time: 1 day (incl. cooling time)
Number of servings: 2

Ingredients:
((Sweet Potato Ramen Noodles))
300g (10.5oz.) Japanese sweet potato
A
* 100ml milk
* 60g (2.1oz.) sugar
* 2 tbsp. butter
* cinnamon powder (if you like)
* 1 tsp. rum (if you like)
((Fillings)) *If you want to make them from scratch, please watch the Shortcake video.
sponge cake
whipped cream
canned fruits and syrup
((Ramen Soup Jelly)) *1 serving
300ml sweetened tea of your choice
5g (0.18oz.) gelatin powder
((Toppings)) *choose whatever that looks like what you want
Naruto: make with white chocolate and strawberry chocolate
Chashu Pork: marble chocolate cookie
Nori Seaweed: black sesame seed cookie
Chopped Green Onions: chopped pumpkin seeds

Directions:
((Sweet Potato Ramen Noodles))
1. Peel and slice the sweet potato into rounds. Soak in water for 10 minutes to prevent them from discoloring. Then drain well.
2. Place the sweet potato rounds on a microwavable dish, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave at 500w for 8 minutes. Leave to steam for a minute, transfer them into a large bowl and mash with a fork.
3. Mix in A while the sweet potato is hot. Then strain through a sieve.
((Fillings))
1. Place a thin layer of sponge cake in a ramen bowl. Brush the cake with syrup, place some whipped cream and fruits, then place a layer of sponge cake and brush with syrup again.
2. Spread enough sweet potato to cover the cake and the cream, then smooth the top. Make sure you cover them because they can easily float up when you pour in the jelly.
3. Transfer the mashed sweet potato to a pastry bag and snip off the end. Squeeze out like ramen noodles.
4. Cover with plastic wrap and put in the freezer until frozen hard. If you don't, the noodles will melt when you pour in the jelly.
((Ramen Soup Jelly)) *start making when the noodles are frozen
1. Heat the tea until hot, add the gelatin powder, and continue stirring until it completely dissolves.
2. Leave to cool (at around 20C/68F) just before the jelly firms up.
3. Pour it into the ramen bowl, place the bowl immediately into the freezer, and let the jelly firm up for 3 minutes.
4. When the jelly is firmed up, transfer the bowl into the fridge and defrost the cake.
((Toppings))
Just before you eat, garnish the ramen with the toppings of your choice!

Hi,

thank you for all the yummy recipes!
And good to know, that you also fail sometimes ^^
But at least you try again. I mostly give up -__- But I want to get better and will try to use your tutorials as often as I can.

Unfortunately I´m in Australia at the moment and groceries are quite expensive >.< But I´ll be in Japan soon... then --> 頑張りたいと思っています!! ;-)

Have a great day,
Vanessa

yes you can but it may take longer and you might want to wrap with aluminum foil to keep it moist :)
