  • 1 lb mochiko
  • 2½ c. white sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 c. water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-14oz can coconut milk
  • ¼ tsp red food color
  • 1½ c. potato starch


  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease a 9×13 inch pan. Whisk together mochiko, sugar, and baking powder; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the water, vanilla, coconut milk, and red food color. Blend in the mochiko mixture. Pour into the prepared pan.
  • Cover the pan with foil and bake for 1 hour. Allow to cool completely.
  • Turn the pan of mochi out onto a clean surface that has been dusted with potato starch. Cut into bite size pieces using a plastic knife (mochi does not stick as much to plastic knives).
