We’ve still got a few weeks left until the official last day of summer, and I don’t know about you, but I’m determined to make these next few weeks as summery and fun as possible! It helps that here in San Francisco, summer has only just begun and the days are heating up! 

To celebrate, I’m whipping up these sweet mochi cakes, that have a dense, chewy texture that reminds me of my childhood eating mochi ice cream. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you better get your tush to the closest Asian grocery store and try some! Meanwhile… you can work on this scrumptious mini mochi cakes recipe…

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups mochiko (glutinous rice flour)
  • 2 cups strawberry milk (regular milk is ok too, but the strawberry adds a very subtle sweetness)
  • 3/4 cup sugar (if you like sweeter treats, make this one cup. 3/4 cup gives it just a hint of sweetness)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • confectioner’s sugar for dusting

Start off by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F and grease your mini cupcake pan (or whatever pan you’d like to use).

In a large bowl, mix butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and milk. Slowly pour in the rice flour while continuously mixing with the other hand. It may look a little lumpy but continue to whisk and it’ll smooth out. Pour the batter into the greased pan.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clear. Dust with confectioner’s sugar and enjoy!!

    Anyone know if the butter is melted first or do I cream it with the sugar then add remaining wet and dry ingredients? I want to try this recipe and I want a to get it right on the first try! Thanks

      Yes, you melt the butter first. baked Mochi desserts are very forgiving! the way I make it is combine the dry ingredients first, then add the wet ingredients one by one. You want to add the melted butter as the 1st wet ingredient so that while it is mixing, it cools down and will not curdle the eggs and milk. HOpe this helps! I’m from Hawaii and mochi is one of our island desserts! ;)
