Butter Mochi

I discovered butter mochi during my trip to Hawaii. Butter mochi in Hawaii is usually made with mochiko (sweet rice flour) and coconut milk. In Japan, they usually use whole milk. I decided to try a whole milk butter mochi.

Butter mochi is very easy to make and is a hit at dinner parties. Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. You will also need a 9X13 inch baking dish or two 9 inch cake tray. Mix 5 eggs with the 3 cups of milk.

In a separate bowl, mix a box of Mochiko powder, 1 tsp baking powder and 2 1/2 cup sugar. I used coconut sugar as alternative white sugar substitute.

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry until all lumps are gone. Melt 1/2 cup of butter and mix in.

Carefully pour into the trays and bake in the oven for 1 hour.

As the mochi bakes, the top will start to make a delicious crust. This is my favourite part of the mochi.

Let the butter mochi completely cool before cutting it into squares.



  • 1 box Mochiko rice flour
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 cups whole milk (can substitute for 3 cups coconut milk)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 1/2 cup white sugar (or sugar alternative)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
