Mochi Laden Fudge Brownie Recipe

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 🙂

School Days Memory

When I say mochi, I mean Chinese version, not Japanese version. Anyone growing up in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and probably most Asian countries will definitely have a very fond memory with this snack.

I remember fondly the mochi seller on a bicycle with his tin box on the passenger seat, selling mochi to hungry school kids. It’s definitely one of my favorite treats in school, and judging by the crowds, a lot of other kids too.

Being kids are fun, the hardest thing to decide is which treat to get for school breaks. 😀

Microwave, parchment paper, and a plastic knife

This mochi recipe is easy because your microwave is going to do everything for you. If you don’t have a microwave, you can go old school and steam your mochi.

But once you try using your microwave for making mochi, you kinda don’t want to go back to steaming again, ever.

Next little help is a piece of parchment paper. I turned my cooked mochi on this and it will be so much easier to handle because it won’t stick to your chopping block!

The same with using a plastic knife to cut the mochi, it’s just so much easier, trust me.

Be sure to wait for the mochi to cool slightly until they are warm and you can handle them comfortable with your hands. Then, proceed with coating them with the sesame seeds and sugar mixture.

Sesame seeds + sugar

Technically you can use all black sesame seeds, or all plain sesame seeds. But if you have both kinds stocked in your pantry, might as well use both since I think the color contrast is very pretty.

You can buy pre-toasted sesame seeds, but you can also toast them yourself. Just place the required amount on a frying pan, and heat on medium until the seeds start to jump a bit.

You may want to stir them every so often so the seeds are evenly toasted. Once toasted, simply use a food processor to grind them to powder, and then mix with sugar.

Allergic to sesame seeds?

If for whatever reason you cannot eat sesame seeds, then you can substitute with ground toasted peanuts. Another idea is to use roasted soybean flour (kinako), which you can get from Asian market selling Japanese ingredients.
