Ube Mochi Muffins

These deliciously chewy muffins are a different take on traditional 'butter mochi.' They aren't too sweet and make a very satisfying afternoon snack.
Prep time: 15 MinCook time: 60 MinTotal time: 1 H & 15 M



  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and place the oven rack in the middle of the oven.
  2. Grease a 12-cup muffin/cupcake tin well with either a non-stick spray or butter.
  3. In a large  bowl, weigh and measure out the sweet rice flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Whisk together.
  4. In the large measuring cup (I used a 4 cup measure here)  whisk together the coconut milk, browned butter, eggs, vanilla, almond extract, and molasses (or other if using).
  5. In a small bowl whisk together ube powder and coconut milk into a paste
  6. Combine everything in the large bowl with the flour mixture and whisk/mix until fully combined.
  7. Portion batter (with a disher) into your awaiting, greased muffin/cupcake tin. (I ended up have a little excess batter and put that into 2 individual silicon cupcake molds and fit everything on a half-sheet pan.)
  8. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until the tops of the muffins are brown and crispy and the muffin springs back when poke it with your finger. If you want a chewier texture bake for less time. 
  9. Let the muffins cool  for 10 minutes in the pan, then remove and cool completely on a wire rack.
  10. Store your creations in an airtight container for up to 3 days. These muffins can be frozen; to thaw just let muffin/s sit at room temp.


This recipe was inspired by the 3JAmigos Butter Mochi Muffin recipe and the Third Culture Bakery in Berkeley, CA In baking I like weighing my ingredients whenever possible; not only is it easier, but it's also quicker. Any food scale will do. Like many people I'm sure, I don't have time to let my eggs come to room temp, which is best for baking. Instead I add my eggs to a whisked mixture of coconut milk and hot browned butter.
