BKC Spring 2018

Yummy yummy Japanese treats!

Trying new tastes are not easy for kids and even adults as well. However, I’m sure that it is fun to explore something new!

Last month, we made Matcha mochi muffins with glutinous rice flour which is called Mochiko. It’s used for making rice cakes. So it makes treats chewy. The kids loved the texture and Matcha flavors taste, and by far, it was  the best hit for kids and teachers!

“I think I don’t like it!”
“You haven’t even tried it yet! Try that small bite!” Teacher Ayumi said.
“Okay...om nom nom.....MORE please!”

That conversations with kids have happened during Japanese treats Big Kids Club every Tuesday! Sometimes, they don’t even say “Yummy” or “Good”, just keep eating and saying “More please!” I believe that is the best compliment for dishes that someone made.

Here is the recipe of the big hit Matcha Mochi Muffins!

-1 box (1lb/454g) of Mochiko

-I Tbs of baking powder

-1 1/4 cups of sugar

-3 eggs

-1 1/2 cups of milk or soy milk

-1/2 cup of oil

3 tsp of Matcha powder (Optional)

-Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl

-Bake at 375 degrees for 30-40 mins

That's it!


I’m going to take a vacation to go to Japan from next week for two weeks. Instead of me, teacher Tomomi will  introduce some treats for children. Come to be a member of Japanese team at Buddings! 🙂
