Black Glutinous & Coconut Mochi Cake

I have to thank Sonia @ Nasi Lemak Lover for sharing the recipe. The original recipe was actually matcha flavour mochi cake but as my kids don't like matcha that much, so I have to switch this to some other flavour. Since there's still some leftover black glutinous rice flour from the previous recipe, so why not trying it in this. And here I go again.....

Ingredients :
150gm glutinous rice flour
75gm black glutinous rice flour
2 large eggs
145gm sugar
85gm butter, melted
180gm light coconut milk/milk
1 tspn baking powder
1 tspn coconut extract
some cooked azuki red beans

Method :
- beat eggs and sugar untill pale & fluffy.
- stir in milk, coconut extract and melted butter and mix well.
- fold in flour and baking powder and mix till well combined.

- fill in cupcake paper cups about 3 quarter full, decorate with red beans.
- bake at 180'c for 20-25mins.

Oh yes, this is a highly recommended recipe by adding in coconut milk! My goodness, you won't believe how it was smell like. And when I took the first bite on it, I can't believe it myself either! It was so so so good. Just like having those black glutinous sweet soup with coconut milk. Just imagine that!

Mochi cake has a very unique texture. Guess, you have to try it yourself! hehe.... Enjoy & Happy Baking!

I also like muffins baked with glutinous rice flour...but have yet got a chance to try black version. Sounds so much more nutritious and healthy.

Pam said...

Have never tried this but bet it is delicious. Interesting recipe especially with the coconut!

Anncoo said...

WOW! Very creative. Looks good and healthy.

Never knew that muffins can be made from glutinous rice flour. How unique.

Belinda @zomppa said...

I didn't either! The coconut looks awesome but what is the texture - is it stickier than normal muffins?

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

you are just creative, this look super yummy, must get some glutious rice flour to bake this.

Claudia said...

Amazing - I learn so much here and get so very hungry.

Barbara said...

I've never cooked with any kind of glutinous flour. Interesting recipe, Kristy. I do love coconut milk in just about everything!
Love coming here to see what you're making!

These would be perfect for my new healthier lifestyle, just the right amount of sweet with the punch of protein from the beans!

tigerfish said...

I wonder how is the taste and texture compared to usual muffin...hmmm....

Chef Fresco said...

How interesting - I've never tried beans in my dessert. Looks like it turned out quite nicely though!

alison said...

hi,kristy!you are very creative,as usually!your muffins have a delicious texture!

citronetvanille said...

never used glutinous rice flour, kristi your cakes are so tempting, how can you resist coconut? I am waiting for you to open a bakery!

3 hungry tummies said...

I am loving all your black sticky rice dessert! Very creative!

Alice Law said...

Can we use those canned 'Azuki' red beans, I really don't know where else to look for the raw one.

The topping can substitute with nuts if we can't find the red bean? Btw, it looks real delicious!

have a nice day!

My Little Space said...

Tigerfish : It tastes a little chewy and spongy comapare to those nrmal muffins.

Chef : Thanks! I wonder you can get these rice flour from the Asian food market!

Alison : Thank you, dear!

Silvia : Hahaha... You got me!

3HTummies : Thank you! I thought you should be quite familiar with the black glutinous rice flour recipes since you're from an Asian.

Alice : I also used the canned one. Hassle free! Oh yes, you just add whatever you like. That's why so good about baking our own goodies. But I highly recommend red beans cause it goes really well with the black glutinous & coconut. You know, just like having the red bean black glutinous rice 'tong sui' which we used to cook at home!

Thanks for visiting all and have a lovely day!
