  • Beat the eggs, coconut extract, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl until the eggs are smooth. Whisk in the milk, coconut milk, and melted butter until incorporated. Stir in the flour mixture a little at a time until no lumps remain; scrape into the prepared baking dish, and smooth the top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the mochi is golden brown, about 1 hour. Cool to room temperature before cutting into 24 pieces to serve.

This was a very good recipe....but to make it into the mochi I remebered as a child in a Hawaii, I had to tweak it just a tiny bit. Instead of using milk, I had to substitute it with evaporated milk and I also omitted the coconut extract...WARNING! Baking it for 1 hour is too long and turns into a cake consistency, 50 minutes is perfect. Read More

This is directed at Jaz's review. Butter mochi is not the traditional Japanese mochi that you see in "puck" form, nor is it like Chichi Dango manju. Butter mochi is of Hawaiian derivation and shouldn't be viewed as the same type of "mochi" that you may have had with your Japanese friends. It is in its nature to be more "cake"ish and is meant to be eaten in squares like brownies or lemon squares. So, while you are correct that this is not "mochi", it IS Butter Mochi. Read More

Very delicious! This was the first time I made mochi and it turned out well though there was some buttery spots on the top when it was done (not sure why the butter seperated out). Read More

I have been experimenting with Butter Mochi recipes and this is by far the Best. My co-workers (my willing ginnypigs) voted hands down on this recipe. Very light due to 2 Tblsp. Baking powder. As I am in Hawaii there are so many recipes but this one came on top. Highly Recommended by me. and my name is Mochi. Read More
