Completely additive-free dorayaki, with carefully selected ingredients, primarily from Japan.
For example, how we add color: While synthetic coloring agents are often used for their strong colors and durability, at Kabo Harayama we use safe-to-eat vegetables (red turnip, spinach, pumpkin, etc.) to add color. The finished Japanese sweets have natural and soft colors of vegetables and fruits.
Also, Japanese sweets made without additives are very delicate. Even a slight change in temperature can affect their quality. At Kabo Harayama, we do not use preservatives, and the finished sweets are immediately frozen to keep their excellent taste and quality.
- Eggs: High quality cage-free, fertilized eggs (produced in Ibaraki Prefecture), which are rarely used in Japanese sweets.
- Granulated beet sugar: Made from beetroot for a gentle taste.
- Azuki beans: Hokkaido azuki beans (Ogura-an): a sweet red bean paste with a pleasant aftertaste and mild sweetness.
- Wheat: Ibaraki-grown wheat produces a dough with no off-flavors.
- Honey: Non-bleached, non-deodorized Aomori honey that is rich in flavor
- Mirin: Made with domestic ingredients from Bunjiro Kakutani Shoten, no bulking agents, traditional method of maturing for 2 years
- Baking soda: The dough is baked with natural Mongolian baking soda.
I opened Ikumi Mama's Animal Doughnuts out of our passion to share the wonderful ingredients from farmers who dedicate themselves to each and every one of their products, to raise awareness about the dangers of food additives, and to make delicious doughnuts! In 2011, the Animal Doughnuts that I developed and debuted at our store, Mike® and Kuro, became a hot topic on Twitter, with images getting over 200,000 hits and being featured in numerous media outlets, including TV, newspapers, and magazines. And we received encouraging messages from countless people across Japan. And as I made doughnuts every day and saw the smiles on the faces of my customers, I realized that by using the finest ingredients from producers who put in a lot of time and effort, I was able to create low-fat doughnuts with a refined sweetness, using flavorful flour and sweet eggs.
