Baked Chocolate Mochi


I got this recipe from somebody a loooooong time ago.  I think I made it only once before and I wondered if I still had the recipe. I did a happy dance when I found it deep in my recipe box.

This is what my copy looks like . . . front and back views.  Looks like a hurriedly jotted down the recipe as someone recited it to me.
recipe

Melt 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1 block margarine over really low heat.   Cool.

Mix together 2 cups mochiko, 2 cups sugar and 1 tbs. baking soda.  Check out our "antique road show" strainer.  Neat yah!  I hope Wendell doesn't ever dump it.

In a separate bowl combine the chocolate/butter mixture, 2 cans of evaporated milk,  2 tsp. vanilla and

two beaten eggs.

Add dry ingredients.  I know . . . that picture came out so cool.  Hahahaha!!

Pour into 9 x 13 inch pan.  I usually line the pan with foil 'cause it makes it easier to clean up.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 55 minutes.

I baked it for 55 minutes and it came out a little cakier than I had wanted.  50 minutes might be perfect in our oven.

Just to clarify things :)

Its not the mochi that will become jiggly :)

Perhaps happy dancing with counteract the fat jiggly parts ????

Great recipes!! How'd you manage to take the shot of the flowing flour while holding your camera with the other hand? THAT WAS VERY COOL!!

jalna said...

Thanks Shun Wah! It's a little hard doing those action shots, but I'm lucky that I'm a left-eye shooter, so I can rest the camera on my shoulder to keep it steady.
