I love my recipe for these Rilakkuma honey cakes, so soft and yummy!
Plus the sweetness is just nice too.
You might have seen my Rilakkuma cakes recipe earlier on? See post here.
This is a variation of that recipe, so that you can create the various colours and designs.
Recipe for Rilakkuma Honey Cakes (Rilakkuma swimming on floats)
(1 serving each of the donut mold and Rilakkuma mold)
- 150g Morinaga hotcake mix
- 100ml milk
- 75ml whipping cream
- 1 tbsp melted butter
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 medium egg
- 3-4 drops vanilla essence (optional)
PART 2 Method (swimming float)
- Butter the silicon donut mold.
- In a large mixing bowl, mix the ingredients together till incorporated and you have an even batter.
- Scoop 3tbsp of batter into a separate small bowl. Add in 1.5tsp plain flour and some pink icing colour. Transfer into a small piping bag.
- Pipe the pink strips for the ‘swimming float’ on the base of the donut mold (5 nos).
- Bake at 180C for about 2-3mins.
- Spoon in the batter into the donut mold till 80% full
- Bake at 180C for 13-15mins.
Tip: Always allow the cakes to cool down in the mold before flipping it over to remove the cakes. If you try to remove the cakes while still very warm, the cakes will crack.
Part 2 Method (Rilakkuma)
- Butter the silicon Rilakkuma mold
- Using the remaining batter from PART 1, scoop the batter into the Korilakkuma mold until about 80% full.
- Scoop out about 2.5 tbsp of batter into separate small bowl. Add in pinch of plain flour and some yellow icing colour. Mix well and transfer the batter into the Kiiroitori mold until about 80% full.
- To the remaining batter, Add in pinch of plain flour and some brown icing colour. Mix well and transfer the batter into the two Rilakkuma mold until about 80% full.
- Bake at 180C for about 18 mins.
Note: The areas near the bear’s ears are quite delicate, be gentle when removing from mold.
The weather is so super warm these days, makes me wish I can swim.
Maybe because I cannot swim, I always think of swimming floats and felt that it will be really cute for the Rilakkuma, Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori characters to be on the swimming floats.
I hope you like this Rilakkuma cakes recipe as much as I enjoyed making and eating them.
