That is just a fun word to say isn't it??? I think so :) Mochiko is a flour made out of sweet white rice, it looks similar to powdered sugar.
I first read about it on a blog post about Mochi a little doughnut made with it then filled with a sweet bean filling, sadly I forgot to save where I found that.
But I did find another blog with a recipe that describes how to make Daifuku, which is a type of Mochi, I can't wait to try making it! Then I found a Blog where the Mochiko is used to make little teacakes, yum.
So I thought this might be a good, easy recipe for me to start out on using the Mochiko, see I can't stop using it! It's almost as fun to type as it is to say, you try it :)
I am gonna be using these beautiful Cherries-
We live only about an hour from Flathead Lake where there are lots of Cherry Orchards, so we get some really great, fresh cherries! And here is the group of ingred. It had to be re-taken it because I realized the evap. milk was MIA-
I am not going to give you the recipe here, because it's not mine, so if you want it you can jump on over to The Food Librarian's Blog and get it. I will say that this recipe was very quick & very easy, the hardest, most time consuming thing was pitting the cherries. It seems I need another kitchen tool ;)
So here we have the finished product-
Aren't they cute. I used the rest of the batter in a loaf pan, I am going to slice it and top with strawberries! Here it is before the strawberries-
Today & Tomorrow I will be getting ready for a SURPRISE party for my Sweet Sister-In-Law, I am making an Appetizer & Dessert Buffet. So after Tuesday night I should have some yummy recipes to show you!!
