Warning! For serious butter mochi lovers only! Presenting… just in time for the holidays…
Egg Nog Butter-Mochi! Oh yeah!
Did I mention that I LOVE mochi. Not sure why but I suspect it’s because it’s high in calories and carbs.
Egg Nog Butter- Mochi
4 cups mochiko (sweet rice flour)
2 1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
4 eggs, beaten
1 stick melted butter
2 1/2 cups egg nog
1 can evaporated milk
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Mix together dry ingredients in large mixing bowl. Mix all liquids together in a separate bowl. Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients. Blend until smooth. Pour into greased 9 x 13, or 2 square cake/brownie pans.
Bake at 325 degrees for 5o minutes then check if the middle is firm. Bake for about 5-10 more minutes, or until golden brown. Cool and cut into desired pieces. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
I used store-bought egg nog, but I bet homemade would be amazing!
I also baked a few mini-cupcake sized mochi. For this option, fill mini cupcake liners about 3/4 full then bake at 325 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
Tinkering with microwave version similar to this matcha flavored mochi… you can thank me later.
