this is a recipe taught to me by my Japanese girlfriend's grandma. She knew i love this dessert.

Until, New Year's Eve when my dinner menu was all Japanese, i thought of looking for the old recipe.

This recipee is dedicated to the late Mrs. Tanaka. this sure is a good recipe and it got a lot of praises.
