Three and a half cups mochiko
Two and one half cups Sugar
One teaspoon baking powder
Two cups water
One teaspoon vanilla
One can coconut milk
In a mixing bowl, sift dry ingredients and set aside.
In another mixing bowl, whisk coconut milk and mix with water. Add vanilla and mix well. Slowly add dry ingredients and mix until well blended.
Divide batter into three equal parts. Color first part of batter and pour into greased pan. Bake at three hundred and fifty degrees for fifteen minutes. Pour second layer on first and bake for twenty minutes. Bake third layer for thirty minutes.
It is very important to cover pan tightly with foil while baking!
Allow the mochi to sit for a few hours before cutting. Roll in potato starch and dust off excess before serving.
