  • Mini cupcake pan
  • Large mixing bowl
  • whisk


  • 2 cup mochiko (glutinous rice flour)
  • 2 cup strawberry milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Confectioner’s sugar for dusting


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • 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!!


  • You can substitute the strawberry milk with regular milk. However, the strawberry milk adds a very subtle sweetness.
  • If you like sweeter treats, use 1 cup of sugar. The recipe only calls for 3/4 cup of sugar, which gives it just a hint of sweetness.
