Matcha and Red Bean Mochi Cake, full of surprise !!

When I first see this mochi cake, I tell myself i must try this cake immediately. Because I can not imagine a cake with crunchy outside and chewy inside, like you eating a mochi (Mochi is a sweet glutinous rice snack in Asia) or Nian Gao.. Something new to me!!
On our 1st trial, my family immediate fall in love with this mochi cake, the taste was so so good..even my husband seldom eat cakes, also gave thumbs up.

Recipe was adapted from My buttery fingers, a 17 years old girl talented in baking !!

Matcha and Red Bean Mochi Cake
**Makes 12 cup cakes
(printable recipe)
220g Glutinous rice flour
5g matcha powder (green tea powder)
85g unsalted butter, melted
145g caster sugar
180g evaporated milk
2 eggs
1 tsp baking powder
Cooked red bean

1. Sift glutinous rice flour, matcha powder and baking powder together.
2. Beat eggs and sugar until fluffy.
3. Add in melted butter, then evaporated milk, mix well.
4. Add in flour mixture, combine well.
5. Place paper cups on a muffin pan, scoop batter and place 1-2tsp cooked red bean in each paper cup.
6. Bake at pre-heated oven at 180c for 20-25mins.
My notes:-
-this mochi cake tasted crunchy & chewy when still warm, but turn moist when cold, anyway both ways also tasted good!!
-You can cook red bean by adding 100g red bean,4tbsp sugar with 800ml water, cook for 1hour or until soft and dry.

Oh So Beautiful! Going into the must-try lists. I dunno about the adding red bean dear. I will probably have to make do with raisins. But the color looks awesome. Beautiful color rendered by the green tea? Can any brand be used? Please let me know.

I love matcha but not Carlos. So I don't usually bake with it if not I will end up eating it myself. I sees a lot of people making cakes with Mochiko flour. I can imagine the chewy texture just like eating mochi.
