This was actually made before my recent trip to Japan, although it screams Japanese (lol).
Buttered toast with sweet red bean paste is a local favorite breakfast choice in the Nagoya region where I grew up in.
But when I saw a combination of read bean paste, cream, and fruit confiture/jam on a toast on Instagram, that intrigued me.
Apparently a cafe called “Coffee House Kako” is famous for making this.
They use butter, sweet red bean paste, whipped cream, and jam/confiture.
My version is a bit different because I used cream cheese instead of whipped cream.
I personally think cream cheese is a better choice because of its texture and taste particularly for breakfast.
This time for jam/confiture I used store-bought cheery, marmalade, and lingonberry. I made kiwi confiture myself.
