Blueberry Mochi Cake

Mochiko is one of my favorite ingredients. Savory or sweet, it’s so versatile. This is a take on old skool Hawaiian custard mochi but in cake form filled with beautiful fresh blueberries! A lovely cake with that special mochi ‘chew’.

1 pound mochiko (1 box)
2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted
2 cups sugar
1 can evaporated milk
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1-1/2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×13 pan with melted butter. Set aside.


Stir together the sugar and the melted butter. Add the evaporated milk and mix well. Then add the eggs one at a time, along with the vanilla.

Carefully stir in the mochiko, baking powder and salt.

After the batter is mixed, fold in the blueberries. If you are using frozen, move quickly – the batter will start to color or ‘gray’.

Pour the mixture into the prepped pan and bake for 1 hour.

Let the cake cool in the pan and then cut it into squares to serve.

This dessert is a lovely blueberry cake with an added surprise of a mochi chewy consistency. It’s perfect with afternoon coffee and tea!

    5 stars! Everyone loved it. I really think the frozen blueberries make the difference too. Can pie filling would be too sweet.

    I just tried this today! It’s good, but I didn’t get the same cake like texture. I used my stand mixer, do you think that had something to do with it? Thanks for sharing your recipes!!

    just had to let you know know that i’ve made your famous mochi cake recipe(s) many times and they’re always a hit. today, made one for someone with a wheat and dairy allergy so substituted coconut milk (12 oz) and coconut oil (melted it to get liquid form) for the butter. perfection, and i kinda like the extra coconut flavor!
