Matcha mochi cake
Over Thanksgiving, I had baked some pumpkin mochi cake for BF’s parents. BF’s mom really liked it and so for Christmas, I decided to bake her some green tea mochi cake.
I thought of using my Nordic Ware Daisy Cake Pan* so that the tops of the cake pieces would have a pretty flower pattern. For some reason, the crust stuck to the pan and so the flower pattern was ruined. While I’m a nordic ware pan fanatic, this pan has been hit and miss for me. I made sure to properly oil and flour the pan but the mochi cake didn’t come out of the pan easily. I’ve had moderate success with this pan. Sometimes the baked goods slide off, sometimes they stick.
Luckily the cakes still came out alright, though not as pretty as I wanted. They still tasted good.

Cream the butter with sugar. It helps to melt the butter a little first. Mix in the evaporated milk to the butter/sugar mixture. Mix eggs into the mixture.
Mix in the rice flour, baking powder and vanilla. Mix in the matcha green tea powder. Pour mixture into a 9 x 13 pan. Bake for approximately 1 hour at 350°F.
Let cake completely cool, allowing the mochi to set, before cutting and serving.
