Author Notes: This is a modern take on a traditional Japanese snack. Chichi dango is a steamed, sweetened rice dumpling. For convenience, this modern version is made in the oven.kikukat


Makes a 9 x 13" pan

  • 2 pounds mochiko (glutinous rice flour)
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cans (13.5 oz. each) coconut milk
  • food coloring
  • potato starch
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13" pan. Grease a large piece of foil (large enough to cover pan).
  2. Combine mochiko, sugar, water, and coconut milk. Remove 4 cups of batter and tint with food coloring. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes.
  3. While first layer is baking, remove 4 cups of batter and set aside. To remaining batter, add food coloring if desired. Omitting food coloring will result in a white middle layer, which is nice. Pour over first layer and bake 30 minutes.
  4. Add food coloring to batter set aside. Pour over 2nd layer. Cover pan tightly with greased foil and bake for 1 hour.
  5. Remove foil immediately. Cool completely before slicing with plastic or teflon-coated knife.
