Mochi Cake, Matcha Chia Mochi CakeThis Malaysian inspired cake is made with glutinous rice flour. Glutinous rice flour cannot simply be substituted with regular rice flour. They have two totally different consistencies that will effect the end product. Look for glutinous rice flour in your local Asian market or a popular brand that is sold in gourmet supermarkets like Whole Foods is Mochiko.

This bookmarked recipe from here encompasses a few current food trends that have become popular the last few years. Matcha is finely ground specialty green tea powder that has been popular in Asia for many years to include in desserts. This is what is used to make the Green Tea ice cream you may enjoy at your local Chinese or Japanese restaurant. Although it has more caffeine than regular green tea, it also has 10 times the antioxidant power. Chia seed is another popular addition to sweets and smoothies. It is a seed from Mexico that adds protein and fiber. With these two small additions to this cake, we’ve added protein, fiber and a wagon load of anti oxidant power to this sweet treat!

I love the texture of this cake, not as jelly like as Nian Gao, this one is much easier to serve and slice.
