Mochi Cake

I am really enjoying this new find
, Mochiko flour makes such yummy cakes. Very moist, dense & chewy, very different from your normal cakes.

Now I thought mochiko would be hard to find, so the first time I went looking for it I went to a specialty store. It was there, of course. But since then I have found it in almost every grocery store I shop at!

Lemon Mochi Cake

1- 16oz box of Mochiko Flour
2c. Sugar
1-1/2T. Baking Powder
1 small pkg of Instant Lemon Pudding Mix
1 can (2c.) Coconut Milk
1c. reg. Milk
1/2c. melted Butter
5 Eggs, beaten
2t. Lemon extract/ or Juice

Heat oven to 350. Grease a 9x13 pan.
Stir together flour, sugar, b. powder, & pudding mix. Whisk in both of the milks until smooth. Stir in the butter, then the eggs, then the extract. Pour in to prepared pan and bake for 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool, then slice using a plastic knife.

You can vary the recipe by replacing the pudding & extract flavoring to other kinds.

Strawberry Mochi Cake

This is my entry for Rach's June Baking Challenge. The ingredient for this months challenge is Strawberries. I can't wait to see all the other goodies that people come up with!

You've got me very curious about this Mochiko flour! I wonder if my grocery store carries it? Did you find it with baking items or specialty items?

I have found it in both those places, the specialty store had it in the baking section, my reg. grocery store had it in the ethnic aisle. I bet they would special order it if they don't carry it. It's around 2.50 for a 1 lb box.

My kids, my son especially, really enjoyed both these cakes :)
