Everyone needs an aunt that spoils them to shit. I have one, and I love her with all my heart. She brings me the most amazing delicacies from Japan, among them cake. I've had this so many times before - literally every time I see my aunt, I eat this cake.
The Japanese are just majestic in learning someone else's technique and perfecting it. Frankfurter Kranz, what is supposed to be a German delight, made absolutely extraordinary. Flaky, sugary crust, just the most amazing soft inside, perfect in flavour. I had a slice with our Bialetti brewed coffee, but I had to save a bit to eat with the most amazing wine after showing my aunt our great grilled dinner outside. Wait until you see what we drank this with . . .
