This year, Chinese New Year is going to fall on February 16th. Meaning, the big family dinner feast is on the 15th. Along with the usual savory spread, it is a tradition in our family to always have some sort of cake to close the feast. And… since 15th is just one day right after Valentine’s day, I think this mochi laden fudge brownie can do double duty. Chocolate of course is always a favorite on Valentine’s. As for mochi, Chinese will tell you that you definitely need some sort of sticky cake for New Year.
Fudge Brownie + Mochi
This brownie is inspired by Lady & Pups recipe, but I use my favorite fudge brownie recipe from King Arthur, modified for a 8″x8″ pan. The amount of mochi is also modified to fit the more common 8″ square cake pan.
But I want more mochi!
If brownie is not your cup of tea, or if you simply are a die hard of mochi fan, you can of course use my chocolate mochi cake. Be advised though that if you choose that route, it is imperative that you stick to using Koda brand mochiko for the mochi cake, and still use Thai glutinous rice flour for the scattered white mochi. Whichever one you end up making, I hope you are going to like this cake as much as I do 🙂
