Buttery mochi cake with a hint of matcha green tea and coconut in every bite. This matcha butter mochi cake is delicious and perfect for sharing.
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs, beatened
  • 16 oz mochiko flour
  • 2 tablespoons matcha powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 12-oz evaporated milk
  • 1 16-oz coconut milk
  • powdered sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 9x13 inch baking pan with parchment paper and lightly grease the surface with olive oil. Set aside for now.
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix together melted butter, vanilla extract, and granulated sugar until combined. Add eggs, one at a time, and mix until combined.
  3. In another mixing bowl, sift together the mochiko flour, matcha powder, and baking powder. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Mix until combined.
  4. Pour in the evaporated milk and coconut milk. Mix until the batter comes together. The batter will appear liquidy. Pour the mochi batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake the mochi cake for 50 minutes to an hour.
  5. Remove the matcha butter mochi cake from the oven when the top is browned. Test its readiness by inserting a toothpick into the center. If the toothpick comes out mostly clean, the matcha butter mochi cake is ready.
  6. Wait until the cake has cooled to room temperature before slicing into 24 pieces. Dust the top of the matcha mochi cake with powdered sugar.
  7. Serve the matcha butter mochi cake warm or cold.
