This is an old skool recipe and the different colors make it a lot of fun. Change it up to match school or fave sports teams colors!
1 (16 oz) box mochiko
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
2-3/4 cups water
1 teaspoon vanilla
food coloring – red and green
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13 baking dish.
In a large bowl combine the mochiko, sugar, baking powder, and vanilla. Slowly add the water, mixing and stirring with a whisk. Get a mini-sous chef to do this, and sniff it too!
Split the mixture into three bowls. Add 3 drops of green food coloring to one bowl, and 3 drops of red to another. Leave the white one as is.
Pour the green mixture into the greased baking pan. Cover with foil and bake 15 minutes.
Take out of the oven and pour the white mixture on top. Cover with foil again, and bake for 20 minnutes.
Now take it out and pour the red mixture over the second layer. Cover and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and cool – overnight. The next day, cut with a plastic knife and roll pieces in potato starch.
This recipe is easy and has a very pretty result – great for parties!
