Trader Joe's Has A Hawaiian-Inspired Cake Mix That's Almost Too Easy
By Stacie Adams
Trader Joe's is now touting Mochi Cake Mix, which is inspired by a dessert that is wildly popular in Hawaii but less well-known throughout the rest of the U.S.
Butter mochi is a custardy cake that's made with mochiko, a type of sweetened rice flour. While the exterior crust offers a toothsome crunch, the interior is soft and springy.
Trader Joe's boxed mix makes it easy to make butter mochi, as you only need the mix, melted butter, eggs, and water. The cake’s texture also makes it easy to remove from the pan.
Mochi Cake Mix has a delectable custardy coconut flavor right out of the box, but you can add unsweetened cocoa powder or replace the water with coconut milk for more decadence.
