In my family, mochi was a very special treat that was always purchased from an asian market or fair. But last year a girlfriend introduced me to this homemade version. Still sweet, sticky and chewy bites of golden dough-like cake…without the trip to Japan-town. These can be made with ingredients easily found at any supermarket and are every bit as wonderful as I remember from my childhood.
Coconut Custard Mochi (Thanks Jenni)
- 16 oz Mochiko (Sweet Rice Flour)
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/3 cup butter, room temperature
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 1 can coconut milk
- 1 can evaporated milk
- 2 tsp vanilla
In a bowl sift together sweet rice flour and baking powder. Set aside.
In a large bowl fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar. Add the eggs and beat well.
Pour coconut milk in a 2 cup measuring cup and add enough water to equal 2 cups. Pour the coconut milk, evaporated milk, vanilla and dry ingredients into the bowl. Mix well.
Pour batter into greased and floured 9×13 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes. Cool completely on wire rack.
