Traditional Japanese sweet rice cake
Known as a ‘New Year’s treat’, mochi is a Japanese sweet rice cake. Made from short grain glutinous rice, it is chewy and sticky. It is typically stuffed with red bean paste.
The Japanese use mochi to prepare a variety of dishes. It is also used as an offering in religious ceremonies. In Japanese culture, it is believed to bring health and prosperity. It is also an important food for New Year celebrations.
Mochi is made with the traditional Japanese method of pounding rice into a sticky paste. It is a main ingredient in many traditional Japanese sweets. In addition to its chewy texture and delicious taste, mochi is also known for its religious significance. The ancient Japanese believed that rice cakes contain the spirits of the gods and have a sacred and divine presence.
The Japanese use a wooden mallet known as ‘kine’ to make the rice dough into a paste. This is then shaped into a popular round shape.

Cheese-filled corn mochi cake
Using fresh corn to make a cake isn’t for the faint of heart. For the best results, you will need to do a bit of prep work. This entails slicing the corn and a little bit of dicing. In the process you get a nice crisp, silky texture to boot. I would not recommend the whole process in a busy restaurant, but I am sure your family will appreciate it on a more leisurely note. I know I do.
While the ingredients are stirring, the good news is that you can put your feet up and relax for a few hours. You can do this with a large pan or a single large pan. The pan should be at least 8 inches in diameter and 12 inches in length. The pan should be at least half an inch deep. Using a pan with a lid makes for easy clean up and the ability to control the temperature.
Store in an airtight container
Whether you are bringing food network corn mochi cake back from the islands or just enjoying a slice as a snack, it is important to store it in an airtight container. This allows you to keep the cake in a good shape and fresh for up to three days. Alternatively, you can store it in the refrigerator for longer periods. The cake will be less chewy and custardy.
For this recipe, you will need an 8-inch brownie pan. You will also need Mochiko rice flour, also known as glutinous rice flour. You can find it at Asian markets. You will also need fresh corn kernels. Using fresh corn kernels adds a lot of flavor to the cake, but you can also add extra corn. You will also need chile flakes and Pecorino cheese. In a small bowl, mix these ingredients. Set half of the mixture aside for later use.
Once the butter mochi is cooled, you can slice it into rectangles. You should also cut some of the corn kernels off the cobs. You can then mix them into the cake batter.
