Strawberry & Grape Mochi Cake


I was trying to find a mochi bread recipe which do not require any premix, I did not find it, however I stumbled upon this blog - Kirbie's Cravings (what a lovely name) with this wonderful strawberry mochi cake recipe.


I halved the recipe as I have a small cake pan at home, also since never try a mochi cake b4, it'll be safer to bake a small cake just in case those at home do not enjoy it :p


I'll list the ingredients as the original and those I used in color & bracket.

Ingredients

450g Mochiko rice flour (225 g local glutinous rice flour)
240g butter (120g)
2 cups / 480g sugar (3/4 cup)
1 can / 340g evaporated milk (170 ml)
4 eggs (2 eggs)
2 tsp baking powder (1 tsp)
2 tsp vanilla (1 tsp)
2 cups fresh strawberries, cut into small cubes (1 cup fresh strawberries and green grapes)
  1. Cream the butter with sugar
  2. Mix in the evaporated milk to the butter/sugar mixture
  3. Mix eggs into mixture
  4. Mix in the rice flour, baking powder and vanilla
  5. Stir in the strawberries
  6. Pour mixture into a 9 x 13 pan
  7. Bake for approximately 1 hour at 180 (I bake for 45 minutes only)
  8. Let cake completely cool, allowing the mochi to set, before cutting and serving
This cake is soft and chewy (very Q as Taiwanese says :p) even after the next day, tasted milky too, the hint of strawberries & grapes really enhance the flavor, yum, definitely a keep recipe.

This is indeed very interesting, shall attempt when free. Talking about mochi premix, where can we purchase it in KL?

Oh, and about mochi bread, which bakery sells it? I tried Sun Moulin 1U, was told they no longer selling it. :(

Seriously I don know, HK, I didn't ask around for the premix or bread, that's the reason look see for recipe at the web. I didn't know Sun Moulin 1U was selling it, aiseh...

Oh, re the Sun Moulin selling, I was just trying my luck there since I read Sun Moulin in Singapore carries it.

But I saw it sold at Lavender @ Pavilion and I bought one to try, it's Black Charcoal flavour.
