A must-have cake for sake lovers! Michinoku Sosai Confectionery Sunadaya sells "6 Sake Breweries' Sake Cakes" made in cooperation with six Iwate sake breweries.

The "Sake Cake" is a long-selling product that has been loved by Sunadaya for over 30 years. The sake cakes were developed together with the sake breweries in the hope that they would help people discover the goodness of Iwate's sake, and six types of sake cakes suitable for the new era have been developed.

Comparison of "6 Sake Breweries' Sake Cakes

The sponge dough is baked pure white and soaked with syrup made from the special sake of six sake breweries. Each one is priced at 300 yen (tax not included). We purchased them at Iwate Ginga Plaza, Iwate Prefecture's antenna store in Tokyo.

Sake Cake Hamachidori

Made with authentic rice shochu "Cable" made from mash brewed with Hamachidori (Kamaishi City) sake yeast and koji. Because it is soaked in sake, it is very moist in the mouth. And the "sake" taste is even more surprising than expected! It is more like drinking alcohol than eating a sweet, and it lingers in the mouth until the aftertaste.

Sake Cake Nanbu Bijin

Made with special junmai sake from Nanbu Bijin (Ninohe City), which won the Champion at the 2017 International Wine Challenge. The sweet aroma spreads softly in the mouth; I found it to be the mildest flavor among the six varieties. If you are not sure which one to buy first, this is a good one to start with.

Sake cake Wasanio

Sake cake made with "Yuhi Bankoku Sho," a honjozo made with edible rice Sasanishiki from Washio (Hachimantai City), located at the foot of Mount Iwate. While Nanbu Bijin has a sweet taste, this one is dry. It has a sharp taste and can be enjoyed neat. Recommended for those with a dry palate.

Sake Cake Kiku-no-ji

Sake cake made with Nanafukujin "dry pure rice sake" and rice shochu "Dadasukodan" from Kikunoji Sake Brewery (Morioka City). The balance of freshness and mildness is excellent. The mellow aroma escapes into the nose. It is truly a good combination of sake and rice shochu.
