I'm surprised that no one has written a review on this recipe so I'll take the plunge and be the first. I usually follow the recipe to a tee when making something for the first time and this one is no exception. The mochi came out really good and tasted great especially since I'm a coconut/haupia lover. Don't be afraid when the liquid ingredients thin out when adding the milk. The mochiko will thicken it to the right consistency. It's good to be able to have something from paradise right at home.
