*If you've never heard of or tried mochi before, be prepared for a very chewy and dense texture.
1 box (16 oz.) of mochiko (sweet rice flour)
2 C sugar
1 tsp baking powder
5 large eggs, beaten
1 - 13.5 oz. can of unsweetened coconut milk
1 C of 2% milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 C coconut oil, melted
1 C flaked coconut, sweetened
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 9 x 13 pan with parchment paper.
Combine the dry ingredients (mochiko, sugar and baking powder) together in a large mixing bowl and stir well.
Combine and whisk the wet ingredients (eggs, coconut milk, 2% milk and coconut oil) together in another bowl and slowly add this mixture into the dry ingredients.
Pour in the vanilla and coconut flakes and whisk everything together until there are no lumps.
Pour it into your lined pan and bake for 1 hour. Let it cool for 10 minutes before cutting. Delicious when served warm!
Another family favorite of ours is mochi ice cream... especially ones filled with mango and green tea ice cream!
Do any of you share our love for mochi? :)
