Small Kid Time Recipes: Butter Mochi

Butter mochi is a beloved dessert from Hawaii and one of my all-time favorite desserts as a kid! It's good to have parents born and raised in Hawaii!

1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 cups superfine sugar*
1 box (16 ounce) mochiko flour
1 can (12 ounce) evaporated milk + 1/2 cup water
1 can (13.5 ounce) coconut milk
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
You can use up to 2 1/4 cups sugar without increasing the volume of the liquid ingredients.  It all depends on how sweet you want the mochi to be.

Add one stick unsalted butter to a microwave safe bowl and melt in microwave for 30 seconds.  Add sugar and mix until well combined.  Add vanilla extract, then add eggs, one at a time.  Mix until well incorporated.  Add in mochiko flour and baking powder, and continue to mix.

Combine evaporated milk and water in a separate bowl.  Whisk to blend.  Add to mochiko mixture in 2 parts, mixing well between addtions.  Next add in coconut milk,  whisking until well blended.

Pour mixture into a 9” x 13” pan and bake for one hour at 350F.  Promptly remove from oven, and let cool completely.  To serve, cut into 1“ x 2” bars.

Topped with shredded coconut if desired.
