Daifuku-mochi 大福餅

Daifuku is a kind of Japanese confectionery made by wrapping red bean paste in a layer of mochi ( rice cake), also called daifuku mochi. The origin of Daifuku is believed to be quail mochi, which was born in the early Edo period (1603-1867). Today, there are many variations of Daifuku, such as Mame Daifuku with red pea or soybeans mixed into the mochi, Yomogi Mochi with a skin made of mochi with mugwort, Shio Daifuku with a salty skin and red bean paste, and Ichigo Daifuku with strawberries in the red bean paste.
