We were in a pinch. Too many pineapples. If they weren’t consumed soon, they’d all go to waste. As anyone in this bind would do we took a trip to the city library and dug through the old archives to find a recipe that just might get us free.
I feel positively about anything including Mochiko flour, but Butter Mochi is usually the dessert I can introduce to people who haven’t eaten a lot of confections made from it to indoctrinate them into the world of sticky, glutinous, and gently sweet treats. If you haven’t had Butter Mochi, think about the best blondie you’ve ever had and then insert part of what makes mango-sticky rice really, really good.
