Perfectly Mochi Waffle Recipe For You

Everything else you need for this mochi waffle recipe is probably already in your pantry and fridge. All you need to do is mix the batter, pour it into the waffle iron, and in less than 10 minutes, you have perfectly crispy and chewy mochi waffles.

Ingredients for Mochi Waffles

The main ingredient used in the mochi waffle recipe is a sweet rice flour called mochi. This is what creates the chewy texture that rice cakes are famous for. Add some more cornstarch for a crispy outer waffle crust.

The rest of the ingredients are similar to other basic waffle recipes such as flour, eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla. For a dairy-free version of the rice cake waffle, you can try using almond or coconut milk instead of regular milk. These are not gluten-free waffles even though it is a rice flour recipe. This is because the batter also contains all-purpose flour. If you do want a gluten-free mochi waffle, you can simply replace the regular flour with a 1:1 gluten-free substitute.

How to make mochi waffles from scratch?

First, add the dry ingredients, flour, rice cakes, salt, sugar, baking powder and cornstarch to a medium mixing bowl. Then stir them together to combine evenly.

Next, add the milk and vanilla and stir again.

Finally, add the eggs and mix again until there are no lumps. The mochi waffle batter will be thinner and whiter than the regular waffle batter.

Another Easy Mochi Waffle Recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup rice cake, or sweet rice flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • Gather food.
  • Whisk together milk, eggs and vanilla in a bowl.
  • In another bowl, whisk together flour, rice cakes, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  • Mix the wet and dry mixture in a bowl until they are completely combined. The batter should be the consistency of pancake batter – a little thick, but not too thick.
  • Put some batter into the waffle iron. (You can use any type of waffle iron you like: round, square or Belgian. If you want to make small waffles, just partially fill the waffle iron with the batter.
  • Cook the waffles until your desired browning is achieved. Mochi waffles sometimes take longer to cook than regular waffles. Keep the finished waffles warm in a 200°F oven while the rest is cooking.
  • Serve waffles with your desired toppings, such as whipped cream, fresh berries,
        and syrup, and enjoy.

    Topping Ideas
  • Fresh berries like blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries are delicious.
  • You can also drizzle on chocolate syrup, Nutella, or peanut butter.
  • Sprinkle the waffles with powdered sugar, cocoa powder, coconut flakes, or slivered almonds.
  • Top with fruit or flavored syrup or just regular maple syrup.
