Mochi success in the New Year!

Thanks to a wonderful cookbook, Seductions of Rice, I now know how to cook mochi. In a previous post, from about a year ago, I had lamented my inability to cook mochi without it looking vaguely pornographic in its leakage. This cookbook suggested that you broil it, not bake it. So I did a combo. I heated up the oven to 400, then put the pan under the broiler....

And voila! Perfect squares of puffed-up mochi! (and incidentally, its supposed to bring you luck for the New Year).

So Happy New Year, and may you have many successes with your gluten-free baking!

(and please, let me know about them)
