Mochi Cupcakes Recipe!!!

I almost fell over when I saw my friend's picture of mochi cupcakes and quickly added a comment requesting the recipe.  Being the super nice person she is, she quickly sent a link to the recipe.  I didn't get to make them right away because I needed a can of koshi-an (sweetened red bean paste), but I thought about those mochi cupcakes daily.  During those daily thoughts, I thought about filling substitutions like blueberry or peanut butter but ultimately decided to test the original recipe first.    

On my very next trip to Longs, I remembered to pick up a can of an.  I prefer tsubuan (with beans) so I decided to use that instead.  Here is a link to the recipe by yoo-eatz.com.  It's super easy and super tasty.  Just mix together: a box of mochiko, 1 1/4 cups sugar, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt, 3 eggs, 1 1/2 cups milk, 3/4 cup vegetable oil, and 2 tsp vanilla extract.  You probably have all that in your pantry!  

I didn't use cupcake liners so I greased two muffin tins.  I filled them half way and then added about 1 1/2 T of an and covered with more batter, about 3/4 full.  Bake for about 20 minutes at 375 degrees.  Let cool!  We got a little excited and discovered the filling was still hot!

While my kids and I were eating the mochi cupcakes, I thought that I might have put too much filling because I really liked the mochi part of the cupcake and there didn't seem to be enough (so I had to eat another one).  My daughter thought it was yummy just the way it was.  We both agreed, if you love mochi, you've got to try these mochi cupcakes!
