My Hawaiian upbringing introduced me into a wealth of unhealthy desserts that are unique in consistency and insanely delicious. After I made this dish for a sushi party the other night, I figured I'd share its delicious weirdness with you. I have a butter and mochi (think chewy Japanese treats) baked good that's really easy to make and only makes a marginal amount of oven + apartment smoke due to dripping butter. Enjoy! Recipe follows.
1/2 c. butter
1 pound (1 package) mochiko flour
2 1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp baking powder
3 cups milk
5 eggs beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup flaked coconut
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Melt 1/2 cup of butter in the microwave and then set aside to cool slightly.
Combine mochiko, sugar and baking powder well. In a separate bowl, combine butter, milk, eggs, vanilla, and flaked coconut. Stir combine dry and wet ingredients. Mix well.
Pour ingredients into a 13x9" pan and bake for 60 minutes (or until golden brown on the top). Be warned: the butter in this dish will overflow in your oven. Consider placing a pan underneath your baking dish to catch any drips.
