Mochi Donut Recipe

The Mochi donut recipe is a staple during the Japanese new year and quite easy to make at home.

What is Mochi?

Mochi is a type of rice cake with Japanese origins. It is made from mochigome which is a kind of sweet glutinous rice. This rice is ground into a paste and then mixed with water, sugar, and cornstarch, and then molded into desired shapes. When it comes to making mochi donuts, this glutinous rice flour is mixed along with all-purpose flour, sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, milk, silken tofu, egg, and water and then rolled into balls. Mochi donuts are distinct in their shape as these dough balls are joined together to form a circle and then fried and covered with a glaze of your choice.

What is the difference between shiratamako and mochiko?

Both shiratamako and mochiko are a type of sweet glutinous rice flour that is derived from mochigome. The main difference between the two is that shiratamako is a refined rice flour with a smooth and elastic texture while mochiko is less refined thus giving it a doughier texture.
