Glazed Mochi Donuts

Glazed Mochi Donuts

Donuts have gone through many transformations, from cronuts to waffle donuts, and now we have a new product: mochi donuts. Donuts are a sweet and chewy dessert that have gained popularity due to their cute shape and decorations. The donuts make a great teatime snack or anytime snack. This recipe will allow you to make delicious donuts at home instead of buying them from the store.

What Are Mochi Donuts?

It is made with mochi flour, eggs, milk, baking powder, and butter. Mochi flour, or sweet rice flour, produces a chewy texture.

The chewy and stretchy texture of these donuts comes from glutinous rice four, and some recipes even use silken tofu to achieve that fluffy yet chewy texture.

There are many options when it comes to icing. You can use basic sugar glaze, as you would with plain donuts, or you can go with bold flavors, like chocolate or matcha.

What’s The Difference Between Plain Donuts And Mochi Donuts? 

Traditionally, donuts are made from plain flour, which gives them a soft, fluffy texture similar to bread. They are often deep-fried, while mochi donuts are baked.

Besides being lower in calories, mochi donuts are also gluten-free. In addition, mochi donuts contain half as much fat as regular donuts.

What Do Mochi Donuts Taste Like?

Despite their sweet flavor, Mochi donuts are characterized by a chewy texture. The outside of the donut is crispy, complementing the chewy center.

Most of the flavor comes from the icing. The most common choice is the classic sugar-sticky glaze, but you can choose what you prefer.

How Do You Make Mochi Donuts?

It is possible to make this guilty pleasure in two ways. The conventional way is to fry it, while the healthier way is to bake it.

Although frying mochi donuts is quicker and easier, it is not the healthiest method.

It is not possible to drop donut batter into heated oil and expect a cute shape afterward with mochi donuts.

Pipe small circles on parchment paper in the flower shape using a piping bag and parchment paper squares.

The batter should be ready by now. Slide the parchment paper with the batter into the heated oil – don’t worry, the paper will separate! Flip the donut and cook until golden brown.

The baking process will be similar. It will take longer, but your snack will be lower in fat.

How Do You Glaze Mochi Donuts?

My favorite part of donuts is the glaze. I prefer vanilla and strawberry, but you can make any type of glaze you want.

If you want a strawberry glaze, combine strawberry jam, powdered sugar, and milk. Whisk all together until smooth. If you want a vanilla glaze, combine powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla bean paste.

The consistency should be thin enough to coat the contours of the donuts, but not drip down the sides when dipped in.

For a thick glaze, add more milk; for a thin glaze, add more powdered sugar.

Make sure the donuts are still slightly warm before coating. Once coated, place them on a wire rack for one minute so the glaze hardens.

How Do You Serve Mochi Donuts?

I will take donuts anytime, anywhere, but that’s just me. You can serve these fresh donuts with tea, iced coffee, or iced coconut coffee.
