Recipe: Butter Mochi

I had planned on posting this recipe Wednesday but there was an incident with my computer. Long story short, I bought a new one and I'm back online.

This is one of those recipes that's great for potlucks as it's easy to make and feeds a crowd. I got it from someone at church who most likely got it from someone else, etc, etc. That said, I don't know where it originally came from. I just know it tastes really, really good. As in, stand over the pan when it's still hot and eat half of it good. Hope you agree.

Butter Mochi Recipe

1 box Mochiko flour (16 oz.)
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 cups milk
1/2 cup butter melted
5 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 can coconut milk (12 oz)

Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients in separate bowls. Mix both together. Pour into a glass 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hour. Time may vary according to your oven. Cover with tinfoil if it begins to get too dark.

Let cool. Cut into 1 1/2" squares. Because mochi is so sticky, it's easier to cut with a plastic knife.

Mochiko flour is a rice flour. Usually you can find it at Asain markets. Depending on where you live, they might carry it in your local grocery store.

Hope this helps :)

Looks great! I was going to ask where to get the flour as well, but I see you've already answered that.

Then I was like... 'well, I should still leave a comment, even though I have nothing exciting to say' So I did... ! :)
