MOCHI!!!

I grew up eating mochi. It’s a sweet, sticky treat, made in various ways, that I ate about as often as any other American kid would eat chocolate cake.

The easiest is mochi baked in a pan, which I always knew as butter mochi. It’s also called custard mochi.

The ladies at my church are FABULOUS cooks and bakers, and the church has “Happy Hour” once a month where women take their turns cooking or baking little treats for people to eat while they hang out after service. (I referenced Happy Hour in my second book in my Sushi Series! LOL)

My husband brought home something one of the ladies made for Happy Hour. It’s a new take on butter mochi—blueberry mochi! I searched online until I found this recipe at JustJennDesigns.com, which is altered from the original. However, I think this is the recipe that was used for the mochi I ate, which was terrific.

It’s also really easy to make. If you have a large supermarket, they sell mochiko flour in the Asian section. At the recipe website, you’ll see a picture of the ingredients, with the mochiko flour box.

If any of you make this recipe, come back and let me know how you liked it!

  9. Oh, you had to mention butter mochi! I haven't had or made that in so long. I think I'm overdue.

    As for blueberry mochi, I'll pass but strawberry may be another story. I'll let you know if I ever try it. :)
