Recipes for "Kitchen Princess" appear in each volume of the Japanese manga towards the very back. Each recipe contains illustrations, and readers follow instructions to make every dish that the main character, Najika, makes in the story. A total of 45 recipes appear throughout the entire run of the manga, which lasted from 2004 to 2008.
For instance, prepare Polka-Dot Pancakes with 1 egg, 3 tablespoons of sugar, 1/2 cup of milk, 1 1/2 cups of flour and 1 tablespoon of baking powder. Whisk the egg and then add sugar before mixing these ingredients together. Next, pour in the milk, mix again, and sift in the dry ingredients before stirring everything together. You can add some blueberries or raspberries to the pancakes as they cook on the stovetop.
Cook the pancakes at 320 degrees Fahrenheit with a little bit of oil or margarine added to the cooking surface. Turn over the pancakes after two or three minutes of cooking to brown both sides. The recipe suggests syrup, butter, jam or honey as a topping, and people who prefer lactose-free milk can use soy milk instead of dairy.
Najika's recipes also come with tips. For example, the recipe for Polka-Dot Pancakes explains that humidity is bad for baking powder, therefore you should store it in a dry place. For mont blanc, the manga suggests cooks use sweetened chestnuts that are already peeled for an easier recipe.
