When I was a very young girl, my mother often made this dessert. She used Potato Starch rather than Corn Starch, sometimes she used Water not Milk. It’s basically Milk or Water thickened with starch. I loved to eat it with Muscovado Syrup and ‘Kinako’, ground roasted soy beans. The gooey paste turns firmer and rubbery like ‘Mochi’ when it is cold, but I could hardly wait.
1/2 cup Milk of your choice *This time I used Soy Milk.
2 tablespoons Corn Starch Flour *OR other starch flour
1-2 teaspoons Sugar *optional
Your favourite topping
- Combine Milk and Corn Starch in a heat-proof bowl and mix very well. Cook in the microwave in medium power. Cooking time depends on your machine.
- I set my machine at 600W, cook 90 seconds, mix well then cook 30 seconds and mix well.
- The gooey paste will turn firmer and rubbery like ‘Mochi’ when cold. Enjoy warm or cold, with your favourite topping. This time I had ‘Kinako’ (Ground Roasted Soy Beans) and Muscovado (Dark Brown Sugar) Syrup.
could you use ice cream instead of milk?
Do you mean you melt Ice Cream and mix it with Starch, then cook it? I think you should use Milk.
hey i was wondering that instead of putting the topping on top could you put it on the inside so it is like a real mochi
It would be great if we could do that, but unfortunately you can’t do that with this gooey paste made with starch. Search this website with keywords such as ‘Mochi’ OR ‘Dumpling’, you can find proper mochi recipes.
I have not tried the recipe I was just wondering what it looked like before I tried to make it.
Such a quick recipe and it worked really well! I used milk and additional milk powder to really boost the milk taste. It has a delicate taste, so I might try more milk powder and sugar next time (although the delicate taste is lovely as well). Set in the fridge overnight and now I have a little bowl of milk mochi which we are going to eat with some palm sugar syrup (gula melaka) 🙂 thank you for the recipe!
This was very tasty! I used rice flour, it went very well with brown sugar on top.
Hi Alexandra. Thank you for your comment. I am glad to know there are more people who enjoy this kind of sweet.

This recipe is a great alternative if you don’t have rice flour Thank you
I am glad I have found another person who enjoys a food like this Milk Mochi. Thank you for posting your positive comment.
You are so rude, I loved this recipe so much and if you have anything mean and rude to say, say it to yourself in front of a mirror, because your the terrible one:))
Hello, I wonder if you can let me know how terrible it was. I understand some people don’t enjoy this type of sweet.
