Mochi (SO EASY)

A great treat for kids allergic to eggs 🙂
  • 1 1/4 cup water in liquid measuring cup (room temperature; or a little less); 1 1/2 cup if you’re using a solid measuring cup
  • 1 cup glutinous rice flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar

Optional (+): Green tea powder (1tsp – 2), red bean paste or peanut butter + sugar (freeze it) mixture


  1. Mix sugar and rice flour together (+ green tea powder) in a wide mouthed microwavable bowl
  2. Add in water & stir until well blended
  3. Microwave for 7 minutes without lid (I suggest trying 4 minutes first. Length of time needed really depends on the strength of your microwave. Judgement call. After microwaving it…I like to let the mixture cool a bit. Easier to work with!)

After Mixture is Microwaved

4. With 2 metal spoons (or gloves) start forming the mochi. (+ red bean paste or peanut butter mixed with sugar) in the middle

5. Roll mochi onto a plate of cooked corn starch (2 minute microwaved corn starch)

6. Plate & Eat

Result = 6 mid sized sweet and sticky mochi

Ta Dah!

SN: Fiddle around with the recipe! The forming of the mochi is just to make it aesthetically more pleasing…but taste just as good from the bowl. If anything is unclear….feel free to leave me a comment.

This is the kind of glutinous rice flour I use…. 1 bag makes about 5 batches/ 30 mochi…if you use a different type of glutinous rice flour, you may have to adjust the amount of water used.glutinous rice flour
