Butter mochi is a classic Hawaiian dessert. This rich, dense, and chewy cake gets its texture from glutinous rice flour, also known as mochiko flour. The unique texture of this cake makes it incomparable to nearly any other dessert. The coconut milk, light brown sugar, and vanilla add nuanced layers of flavor for a dessert that may look simple, yet tastes anything but.
