  • Mixing bowls
  • Measuring cups and spoons


Mochi Donuts

  • 1 cup pancake mix
  • 1 cup Mochiko rice flour sweet rice flour
  • ½ cup 2% milk
  • 1 large egg
  • pinch of salt
  • Vegetable oil for frying

Chocolate powdered sugar

  • 2 tablespoon confectioner's sugar
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder


Mochi donuts

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk the sweet rice flour, pancake mix, and salt. Slowly add the milk to the flour mixture and mix until it is a dough. Add the egg and mix until well combined.
  • On a lightly floured surface (use more rice flour), place the dough and roll into a long snake about ¾ inch thick. Cut into 1 inch pieces and then roll into balls.
  • Take 6-8 dough balls and arrange them to form a ring and put on a piece of parchment paper. You can connect the rings with a dab of milk or water.
  • Add vegetable oil to the frying pan and put temperature on medium-high. Once the oil is ready turn down to a medium-low temperature. Carefully place each donut along with the parchment paper into the oil. The parchment paper will detach itself, so just remove with tongs.
  • Fry each donut for a couple of minutes on each side until the donuts are a golden brown color and have puffed up. Remove and transfer to a cooling rack.

Chocolate powdered sugar

  • Combine the confectioner's sugar and cocoa powder together in a bowl. Dust over each donut and serve!!!
