Baked Coconut Mochi
Surprisingly I’m not one for desserts or baked goods. When I’m forced to bring in a dessert I usually bring baked coconut mochi. The following is the recipe I use. I got this recipe from one of my coworkers who grew up in Hawaii.
1 lb. MOCHIKO (rice flour)
2 cups SUGAR
2 tsp. BAKING POWDER
3 cups MILK
1 block BUTTER, melted (1/2 cup)
5 EGGS, beaten
1 tsp. VANILLA
1 tsp. LEMON EXTRACT
1 pkg. COCONUT FLAKES (1 cup)
1/2 can COCONUT MILK (optional)
1. Blend all ingredients and pour into 9 x 13 baking dish
2. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes
3. Cool and cut into small rectangles for serving
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine dry and wet ingredients separately. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
Don’t over cook it.
