Get ready for your next food obsession. Mochi donuts, also called pon de ring donuts, are a crispy, springy, and sweet treat that combines the chewy texture of Japanese mochi with the crispy fried goodness of the American donut. Although its origins are in Hawaii, these adorable and shareable donuts were popularized by Mister Donut, a chain in Japan. Although the name might suggest otherwise, these donuts actually don’t contain any of the sticky sweet rice flours you might find in mochi or mochi ice cream. Instead of referring to the contents of the donut, the name is inspired by a Japanese term that describes texture, mochi-mochi, which is a chewy, chewy texture. The best way to get that characteristic springy texture is to use a combination of tapioca flour (the same type used to make Boba) and all-purpose flour. Adding mochi flour will make the dough denser and fluffier, closer to butter mochi.
Here are some tips for making mochi donuts:
– Let the dough rest! The batter will still be a little runny after being mixed. Giving it time to rest will absorb all of the liquid into the batter, resulting in a batter thick enough to clean.
– To ensure the batter has the correct consistency, add flour in 1/2 cup increments to ensure the dry ingredients are thoroughly mixed into the batter.
– Don’t skip the parchment square circles! Having a constant sized circle will mean equal sized donuts.
The best part of the donut is undoubtedly the frosting. You can choose one, two, or all of the frostings we’ve added here, or create your own flavor combinations!
