This recipe is inspired by Bob's Red Mill Sweet Rice Flour.
You'll need -
1 cup of sweet rice flour
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp of baking powder
14 ounces of canned coconut milk
1/2 cup of applesauce
1/4 cup of melted vegan butter
1 tsp of vanilla
Handful of coconut shavings
Cherries for topping
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and oil an 8x8 baking pan.
Mix dry ingredients (except the coconut shavings) together in a bowl.
In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients.
Slowly Pour dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients and slowly mix together all ingredients as you slowly pour the dry into the wet. When continents have been mixed pour batter into pan. Place in oven anywhere from 60 - 65 minutes until settled. You can check mochi sticking a toothpick into it and see if it comes out liquidity or just a tad of sticky goo. When the top looks settled and toothpick comes out with some goo but not pure liquid batter take out of the oven and add shredded coconut shavings and/or cherries to your desired amount.
Allow mochi to cool and viola, enjoy.
Bonus: You can enjoy mochi alone or with a side of choice maybe a tropical themed beverage, chai tea, or (vegan) ice cream.
