You know me and my obsession for green tea desserts. Here is a super easy and fast recipe that will kick your craving. It’s not your usual looking mochi ball with red bean paste inside, this is a much easier recipe and its more of a mochi cake. If you search for “mochi cake” online it will probably bring you to the popular Hawaiian “Butter Mochi Cake,” although I have never tried this I am sure it tastes delicious. This is a great pairing with glass of hot green tea, but keep in mind that it might keep you up at night.
Revised recipe 02/16/16
I use the low fat coconut milk, the ones in the carton instead, I found that using the full fat was too greasy and became too wet. The amount of coconut milk may vary a little bit, you are looking for a batter that is thick like pancake batter.
- Prep Time :5 minutes
- Cook Time :35 minutes
- Yield : 30 squares
This recipe makes a very small portion about 10 squares. You can double the recipe and then use a 8X8 pan.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 4 X 8 pan with parchment paper.
Mix all the dry ingredients, put the Mochiko flour, sugar, and matcha powder in a bowl and mix well.
Add the eggs, coconut milk, pure vanilla extract and butter and mix until well incorporated.
Pour into the pan and bake for 30-40 minutes. Allow for the cake to cool completely before cutting into squares. Dust with icing sugar just before serving. If you really like the taste of green tea then you can dust a bit on top of the icing sugar.
