MOCHI CAKE, ANY WAY YOU WANT IT
Gooey-bouncy on the inside and crispy-chewy on the outside, mochi cake is a texture we just can't get enough of. Made from glutinous sweet rice flour, it's naturally gluten-free, and this version can even be made dairy-free by using coconut oil and milk. Our recipe is based on Hawaiian butter mochi, but is less sweet and highly adaptable. You can mix and match flavors and spices, though make sure to add an additional three tablespoons rice flour if you don't want to add a powdered flavoring. Bake in a round cake pan for elegant wedges, a baking pan for gooey squares, or a muffin pan for more crispy-chewy edges.

Yield One 9"-diameter cake, one 8x8" square cake, or 14 standard cupcakes
Number Of Ingredients 11
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Generously butter a 9"-diameter cake pan or an 8x8" baking pan or 14 cups of two standard 12-cup muffin pans. (If you only have 1 muffin pan, you can bake the extra batter in a small loaf pan or mini muffin pan, or just discard it.) Generously coat pan with sugar, tapping out excess (about ¼ cup should do it).
- Place 1½ cups (300 g) sugar and 6 Tbsp. butter in a large bowl. If using coconut milk, heat in a small saucepan over medium, whisking constantly, until no clumps remain, then whisk into sugar mixture. If using half-and-half, whisk directly into sugar mixture. Add eggs, vanilla, and salt and whisk to combine.
- Whisk rice flour, powdered flavoring of choice (or 3 Tbsp. more rice flour), spice of choice, and baking powder in a medium bowl to combine, then whisk into egg mixture. Scrape batter into prepared pan and sprinkle with coconut or sesame seeds.
- Bake until top begins to crack and cake springs back when gently pressed, 55-65 minutes for cake and 45-55 minutes for cupcakes. Transfer pan to a wire rack and let cake cool in pan 10 minutes. Run a knife around perimeter of cake, place a plate over pan, and invert cake onto plate. Hold wire rack over cake and invert cake onto rack (simply turn cupcakes out onto rack and turn over). Let cool completely.
- Do ahead: Cake can be baked 5 days ahead. Store tightly wrapped at room temperature.
BUTTER MOCHI CAKE
This is a delectably rich, buttery, and simple-to-make rendition of the traditional Japanese dessert of red-bean mochi. Traditional Japanese mochi is made from sweet rice flour mixed with water, steamed, and formed into small patties filled with sweetened red bean paste and lightly dusted with confectioner's sugar. This butter mochi cake is a westernized version of the traditional mochi, for it incorporates butter, milk, eggs, and vanilla and is baked.

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch Bundt pan or a 9x13 inch baking pan.
- In a large bowl, mix together the butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and milk. Stir in the rice flour and baking powder. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Drop red bean paste by scant teaspoonfuls onto the top of the cake. If spoonfuls are too big, the filling will sink to the bottom.
- Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cake springs back when lightly touched. If using a Bundt pan, invert the cake onto a serving plate. Cake must be completely cooled before unmolding from Bundt pan, or it will be too soft to hold its shape. Serve small slices of this very rich cake at room temperature or slightly warmed.

CHOCOLATE BIRTHDAY CAKE BUTTER MOCHI
Sprinkles always bring joy to a cake, but add Pop Rocks and you have a celebration, complete with a mini fireworks show. This recipe from the chef Sheldon Simeon and Garrett Snyder's 2021 book, "Cook Real Hawai'i," takes chocolate butter mochi to the max with a creamy peanut butter topping and lots and lots of candy. Add the Pop Rocks just before serving; the candy has a tendency to ping off as it reacts with the moisture in the frosting. The butter mochi is best the day it is made, but will keep a couple of days covered in the refrigerator.

- Make the butter mochi: Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with butter.
- In a microwave-safe large bowl, melt the 12 tablespoons butter and chocolate chips by microwaving on high in 30-second increments, stirring and repeating as needed, until just melted.
- Add the granulated sugar to the melted chocolate and stir until combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla and milks.
- In a large bowl, stir together the mochiko, baking powder and cocoa powder until evenly distributed. Fold the liquid chocolate mixture into the dry ingredients, stirring until thoroughly mixed. When the batter is totally smooth, pour it into the prepared baking pan.
- Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Let cool slightly.
- As the cake cools, make the frosting: In a bowl with an electric mixer, whip together the peanut butter and Demerara sugar until the mixture has the texture of frosting.
- While the cake is still slightly warm, spread the frosting evenly over the top. Let cool to room temperature. Just before serving, sprinkle with Pop Rocks, if using, and shower sprinkles over the top, then cut into squares and serve.
Tender and chewy, this big-batch dessert - as comforting as cake and as fun as bar cookies - is always a hit at parties. Mochiko, sweet rice flour, not only gives it its distinctive marshmallow-like softness, but it also lends a natural sweetness. This version of butter mochi uses only coconut milk for its richness and subtle nutty taste, but you can substitute equivalent amounts of whole milk, evaporated milk or a combination of those liquids. Butter mochi develops a crackly top that stays crunchy the day it's baked, making it a delicious dessert to eat without adornment. But, if you'd like more crunch, you can sprinkle dried shredded coconut evenly over the top before baking, or, for a tangy, colorful top, you can coat it with the passion fruit glaze below.

- Make the mochi: Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter a 9-by-13-inch cake pan, then line the bottom and sides with parchment paper.
- Whisk the mochiko, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Prepare the batter in a stand mixer or in a large bowl with an electric hand mixer or whisk: Whisk the eggs and sugar until pale yellow and thick. Continue whisking while pouring in the coconut milk, then the butter and vanilla. Continue whisking while gradually adding the mochiko mixture. Whisk until the batter is completely smooth. Pour into the prepared pan, then tap it against the counter to get rid of any air bubbles.
- Bake until golden brown and crackly, 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 1/2 hours. When you press the center, it should bounce back but not indent at all. Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack. Use the parchment paper to slide the cooled mochi out of the pan.
- The mochi is delicious plain, but you can add a glaze if you'd like: Mix the confectioners' sugar with 2 tablespoons passion fruit pulp until smooth. It should be thick but drippy. If needed, add another 1 to 2 tablespoons pulp. If you'd like to create an ombré or sunset effect, scrape some into another bowl or multiple bowls and tint with food coloring. Spread the glaze evenly over the mochi, in stripes if you'd like, and let stand until set.
- Cut the mochi into squares or bars. Serve immediately, or keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 by 13-inch baking pan with butter or oil.
- In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla, and milk. In another larger bowl, whisk together the mochiko, sugar, baking powder, and kosher salt. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and, with a wooden spoon stir until well combined. Add the melted butter and coconut milk and mix until fully incorporated. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and rap the pan on the counter a couple of times to bring any air bubbles up to the surface. Evenly sprinkle the shredded coconut on top of the mixture, a handful at a time, being careful not to jiggle the pan too much, as you want the coconut to stay on the top. Then sprinkle on a few pinches of flaky salt, if desired.Bake until the mochi is set and golden brown on top, about 1 hour. Set the pan on a wire rack and let cool completely before slicing into rectangles using a plastic knife to minimize sticking; I cut four columns and five rows to make twenty 2 1⁄4 by 2 1⁄2-inchpieces. If the knife seems to be sticking, rub it with a little unsalted butter or neutral oil. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
COCONUT-SESAME BUTTER MOCHI CAKE
Butter mochi is a Hawaiian cake that is sweet and gooey, not unlike like Japanese mochi. Rice flour is a core pantry ingredient in most Japanese households, including mine, so I almost always have the ingredients on hand to whip up this cake when the mood (or need) strikes. Just like this recipe, I'm a little bit Japanese and a little bit American. The combination of American ingredients like butter and evaporated milk with Japanese ingredients like rice flour and sesame seeds feels familiar and comforting to me. Butter mochi can be baked plain or topped with coconut and black and white sesame seeds or slices of fruit like strawberries, mango or peaches. You can serve butter mochi with ice cream if you like as well.

- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch-square cake pan or 10-1/2-by-7-inch cake pan with butter.
- Put the 4 tablespoons butter in a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat until melted. Meanwhile, whisk the coconut milk to remove any lumps. Add the coconut milk to the melted butter and reduce the heat to low. Gently warm the mixture, stirring often, until just above room temperature and no lumps remain.
- Whisk together the mochiko, sugar, baking powder and sea salt in a large bowl.
- Whisk together the eggs, evaporated milk and vanilla in a medium bowl. Pour this mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Add the melted butter-coconut milk mixture, whisking continuously, until fully incorporated and smooth with no lumps.
- Pour the batter into the prepared pan and tap the pan on the counter a few times to remove any air bubbles. Evenly sprinkle the top with the coconut chips or flakes. Sprinkle with the black and white sesame seeds and finish with the fleur de sel.
- Bake the mochi until it is set and golden brown on top, 1 hour 5 minutes to 1 hour 15 minutes. You can bake the mochi longer for a firmer texture, or for less time for a gooier texture. If using a glass or dark metal pan, subtract a few minutes from your baking time.
- Transfer the pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Coat a knife with butter and cut around the edges to help the cake separate from the pan and prevent the cake from sticking to the knife. Serve the cake directly from the pan.
