Mochi Waffle Recipe

Mochi waffle is a type of waffle using a flour called mochiko (sweet rice flour). This is a soft, sweet waffle usually eaten with ice cream, fruits, or other toppings. I love them because they are similar to regular waffles but have a chewy texture that keeps its form as you eat them while at the same time keeping the crumbs inside. You can even grill them and have a delicious dessert that’s also healthy. Mochi waffles are a great alternative to other sweet waffles that use regular flour. They have a slightly chewy texture that is not as heavy as the regular ones, and it’s perfect for those who love eating ice cream with their waffles.

Recently I’ve become enamored with these waffles. There’s nothing like it in the universe; it transcends this mortal realm and enters pure indulgence. I had the opportunity to make these delicious treats at home, and I’m so glad I did. They’re easy to make and taste even better than the ones you can get in stores. The best part? They’re healthier than regular waffles.

What is Mochi Waffle?

The word “mochi” comes from the Japanese word for rice cakes. Waffles can be found worldwide in different forms, but you’ll see that mochi waffles are a unique variety of this classic treat.

Mochi waffles are made with a batter similar to that used for making traditional waffles: flour, sugar, eggs, and milk or water. But instead of using butter or oil for cooking them, they’re cooked in a special kind of iron that’s been coated with nonstick spray or vegetable oil (so it doesn’t stick). The iron separates each waffle into four pieces before it’s done cooking—hence the name “mochi” waffle!

How to make Mochi Waffles

Here are the steps for making mochi waffles:

  1. Preheat the waffle iron to medium-high heat.
  2. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Add the milk and eggs and mix until smooth. Set the batter aside in the refrigerator while you prepare the chocolate mixture.
  3. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the butter, sugar, cocoa powder, and milk until melted. Allow it to cool slightly before adding 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (or more if desired). Stir well to combine, then set aside for later use when making your waffles!
  4. When ready to make your waffles: Spray both sides of your preheated waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray or brush with melted butter (optional). Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into each square on your waffle maker – be careful not to overfill them because they will overflow when cooking! Close lid tightly and cook according to manufacturer’s directions until golden brown on both sides (about 3 minutes per side). Remove from iron and serve immediately topped with whipped cream

Tips

Here are some helpful tips for making Mochi Waffles:

  1. The first tip for making better Mochi Waffles is to use fresh mochi. You can use frozen mochi if you don’t have fresh mochi. The next thing you want to do is thaw out your mochi and let it sit out for at least an hour before using it in your recipe so that it’s easier to work with when preparing your dish.
  2. Another tip is to add more sugar into your dough before baking it so that it will come out sweeter than normal when finished cooking; this will also help give an extra crunchy texture which makes eating them even more enjoyable!
  3. One last tip is to add vanilla extract or other flavors such as cinnamon or nutmeg into the batter before cooking so that they come out tasting even better than before!

Storage

Mochi Waffle is a delicious, chewy treat perfect for any occasion. But what if you need to store them?

We’ve got you covered! They can be stored in the freezer or refrigerator, but they’re best enjoyed when fresh out of the oven.

If you want to keep them longer (say, for a party or potluck), all you need to do is wrap the individual pieces in plastic wrap and then place them in a freezer bag.

Freezing helps prevent sogginess and gives them a longer shelf life. Just be sure to let them thaw before serving!

Reheating

You can reheat your waffle in the microwave or oven.

In the microwave:

  1. Place the mochi waffle on a microwave-safe plate.
  2. Heat the mochi waffle on high power for 30 seconds, flip it over, and heat it for another 30 seconds. Repeat this process until the mochi waffle has heated through, about one minute total.

In the oven:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Place the mochi waffle on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes, then flip it over and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
