Matcha Mochi Cupcakes with Red Beans

Big thank you to all my readers who have sent in requests for recipes. Your enquiries are now an excellent source of inspiration to me. Really helps with my weekly meal planning while at the same time I can experiment with new dishes too. So thanks again peeps and keep them coming! ?

This recipe that I’m sharing today is inspired by Angela L’s email. She mentioned that she had a lot of glutinous rice flour left over from making glutinous rice dumplings and hence wanted to know what else she could use the flour for.

Well, Angela, do check out my recipes below for more ideas on how to use up those glutinous rice flour –

In addition to the above, here’s one more recipe of mochi cupcakes that I had made not too long ago. These mochi cupcakes turned out really soft, moist and chewy inside.

Make great snacks for those of you who like the mochi ‘QQ’ (springy) texture. Also added walnuts and red beans for that extra bite. ? Give it a try!
