Strawberry and Mango Mochi Cake

My friends and I loooove mochi, especially on frozen yogurt! So, I wanted to make a cake that incorporates that sticky mochi texture that we love – because,
mochi + cake = awesomeness! 
But I also wanted to take it up a notch. So, here is,
mochi + cake + strawberries + mangos = awesomeness to the next level!

So chewy and tasty!


  1. I love mochi! This looks so yummy!

  2. I hope I don't have to ration THESE mochis!!

  3. Lovely! This one is a real mouth-watering mango and strawberry mochi cake! I would like to give it a try. Thanks for the recipe.

  4. I tried making this, but after more than an hour in the oven, the inside was still very moist. Any idea what went wrong?!
    I was so excited, your cake looks wonderful!!

    1. Hi Jackie, sorry to hear it didn't turn out! The cake is pretty moist as the glutenous flour makes a sticky dough. However, a toothpick inserted should not come out with bits of dough on it. Maybe our oven temperatures are a different?

    2. Hmm.. moist was probably an understatement - it definitely just looked like raw dough :( Maybe I`ll try it again..!

  5. the crusts(such as the bottom) was a bit tough but the inside is absolutely delicious! moist with a sponge-y bounce! i didnt have evaporated milk so i used sweet condensed milk and added about 1/4 cup sugar instead.
    this will be a keeper for me!

    1. Awesome! Glad it worked out!
