This mochi cake recipe has a seasonal twist. The autumnal spin on a Japanese style dessert incorporates pumpkin into a black sesame-flavored treat. From Sarah Menanix at Snixy Kitchen, the fall-inspired dish is a "gooey chewy orange cake studded with black dots," which makes it a festive addition to any Halloween party.
The unusual combination of black sesame and pumpkin is described as slightly sweet and nutty with a chewy and moist texture. The top of the squares are a bit crustier, which provides nice contrast.
The mochi cake recipe calls for ingredients including sweet rice flour, ground cinnamon, freshly grated nutmeg, ground ginger, ground cloves, pumpkin puree, full fat canned coconut milk and black sesame seeds.
