For Christmas, my sister got me a Nordic Ware baking pan I wanted. It bakes sheet cakes with daisies on one side. I’ve been trying to decide what to bake with it and the other day I decided to try to make mochi cake with it.
I chose a green tea mochi cake. I thought having the top decorated with flower designs would be a nice touch to the cake.
Boyfriend and I have found that we really enjoy eating the cake while it is still a bit warm because the edges have an extra crispy chewiness, much like the brownie edges.
Green Tea mochi cake
- 16 oz Mochiko rice flour (or can substitute for any brand of glutinous rice flour)
- 1 cup butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
- 4 eggs
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 tablespoons matcha green tea powder
1. Cream the butter with sugar. It helps to melt the butter a little first.
2. Mix in the evaporated milk to the butter/sugar mixture.
3. Mix eggs into the mixture.
4. Mix in the rice flour, baking powder and vanilla.
5. Mix in the matcha green tea powder.
6. Pour mixture into a 9 x 13 pan.
7. Bake for approximately 1 hour at 350 degrees.
8. Let cake completely cool, allowing the mochi to set, before cutting and serving.
