Story Behind this Recipe
I go to Food Land sometimes just to have butter mochi. I asked a Hawaiian native to tell me an easy way to make it. It's really quite simple, so nthis recipe it's a favorite.
You just have to mix the ingredients together, so it's super easy! Leave it alone while it cools. It'll be easier to cut after it cools. Definitely give this a try when you start missing Hawaiian food.
