Could you eat a fruit sandwich?

I'm serious. Maybe you already do. I've just learned about Japanese fruit sandwiches today. Whipped cream is spread on Japanese milk bread which is similiar to our white bread but larger, and if I remember right not as soft. They use different fruit combinations. Japanese cuisine is all about presentation and that is true with their fruit sandwiches as well.

I believe I would love to eat Japanese fruit sandwiches. I love fruit and rarely eat lunch meat. It would be like dessert but hey, aside from the blood sugar spike, it's a healthy sandwich.

These would be great to make for gatherings. When Covid is under control and we can attend gatherings again, I hope I remember these to bring as my contribution.

Here are a couple of links to show you what I'm talking about:

Yum! I absolutely would....

It almost seems like a portable version of a strawberry shortcake or angel food cake.

After looking at the pictures, i would think of the bread as similar to our angel food cake or our pound cake. Looks yummy to me!

I was thinking what lilbitkm said- sounds like strawberry shortcake! That is pretty much the only "cake" I even remotely like, so I'd be on board

I could eat that (as in it’s probably tasty), but I wouldn’t. All of my unhealthy calories are reserved for chocolate.

P.S. I love your tidbits about Japan, thanks.

Thanks Amiga. I'm hooked. Learning about Japan keeps me sane, gives me something to look forward to.

I love how the Japanese make their food so beautiful and appealing.

When strawberries and other berries are in season, I make open-faced sandwiches (home-made whole wheat or rye). My mother used to make fruit sandwiches every spring/summer when I was little. I don't use butter or whipped cream, just sliced strawberries or whole blackcurrants, boysenberries, etc. I haven't tried kiwi, but that would be good too. My sandwiches are not nearly as pretty as the Japanese ones, but maybe a little healthier.

Shokupan bread is not really sweet like angel food or pound cake. Itís regular white bread, though somehow more delicious than our plain white loaf bread. Soft, but not gummy, light but resilient. Maybe just a touch sweet due to the milk. Fruit sando looks so good!

Hmm. Maybe I'll have to take a pass after all. I like light angel food-like cake but the texture of actual white bread (untoasted) is really unappealing to me. But if it's more delicious, maybe?? (I'm using way too much brain power on this thought).

OIC answered my question about the milk bread. If it was like angel food cake then Iíd definitely give it a go! Angel food cake is my favorite. Since milk bread is not like that, just pass the fruit and whipped cream!

I think as I am a fussy eater I would be willing to try a fruit sandwich. Not a fan of kiwi.
