How To Make Raindrop Cake

Looking for a unique dessert? Then, this Japanese raindrop cake, made with agar powder & smothered with a sweet sauce, is perfect for you.

Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 5 mins
Total: 10 mins


  • 3⁄4 cup water
  • 1⁄8 tsp agar powder, plus 1⁄16 tsp

For Toppings:

  • 1 tbsp soybean flour, roasted
  • 2 tbsp black sugar syup


  1. In a small saucepan, add agar powder and water and stir with a spatula a few times, until the agar powder dissolves into the water.
  2. Turn the stovetop to medium heat and bring the agar water mixture to a boil. Maintaining a medium heat level, allow mixture to boil for 1 minute, then turn off heat. Try to be as accurate with the timing as possible.

  3. Use a spatula to stir the mixture a few times. Pour mixture into molds.

  4. Place molds into the fridge to set. When they are ready, they should easily slide out just by slightly tilting the molds. Add the cakes to a plate. Add some soybean flour to the plate and drizzle black sugar syrup on top of the cake or on the side.

  5. Serve immediately and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

  • If you don't heat long enough, your agar won't be fully dissolved. If you cook too long, your mixture will condense down too much. 
  • Do not take the cakes out of the fridge until you are ready to serve because they will start to melt after 20 to 30 minutes.
