Recipe: Cocoa Mochi Cake

I had planned on sharing a snack idea for St. Patrick's Day but the weather was just not cooperating for pictures. I really need to invest in a photo light box. Fortunately, I had taken pictures a while back of this cocoa mochi cake I made so I'm sharing this recipe instead. The recipe comes from a friend who is an exceptional baker. Her recipes never disappoint. If you're looking for something different for dessert, this just might be the recipe for you. Enjoy!

Cocoa Mochi Cake Recipe

1 lb Box of mochiko (rice flour)
1 T Baking soda
3 T Cocoa powder
1 3/4 Cup white sugar
1/4 Cup melted butter (1/2 cube)
2 Beaten eggs
12oz Can evaporated milk
120z Can coconut milk
1 tsp Vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Grease 9" x 13" pan

1. Mix mochiko, sugar, cocoa, and baking soda.

2. Add all the liquids, mix well until batter is smooth.

3. Bake 1 hour and 10 minutes.

4. Cool completely and cut with a plastic knife.

*A regular knife will stick to the cake; that's why it's good to use a plastic knife.

Oh that looks so moist and yummy! I like anything with coconut milk. I've never used rice flour though. I'll have to try this one for sure.

Hi, if you are wondering about a lightbox, I bought mine on ebay for a ridiculous amount here : http://myworld.ebay.com/lightupfoto/

The pumpkin mochi is denser than the cocoa mochi. It's a lighter texture, cross between cake and mochi.

This looked so good different that I had to try it out. I didn't have coconut or evaporated milk on hand, so I made a few substitutions, and it was still delicious. I wrote about it here:

Thanks for sharing!
