  • oven
  • hand beater


  • ½ cup Soft Unsalted Butter 100 grams
  • 1 ½ cup Sugar
  • 1 ½ cup Glutinous Rice Flour
  • ½ tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 large Eggs
  • ½ can Coconut Milk 200 ml
  • 1 cup Milk
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder


  • Preheat oven to 180 degree C. Line a square pan with parchment paper and set aside.

  • Add in ½ of the rice flour and mix.
  • Add in one egg and combined.

  • Add in coconut milk and regular milk and mix gently.

  1. Use glutinous rice flour | sweet rice flour for proper texture. It is also called as sushi rice flour | mochi flour | mochiko. Normal rice flour doesn't work.
  2. Don't skip on the butter, it adds nice flavour.
  3. Use thick creamy coconut milk for more coconut flavour.
  4. You can use evaporated milk instead of regular milk. but regular milk work just fine.
  5. Don't over bake the cake else it will turn hard.
  6. Use right size pan so the cake will have depth and more chewiness. I used larger pan so my cake was shallow. More thick cake taste more chewy and delicious.


If you can resist this cake stays good for 2 days at room temp. But it is best served fresh.
