DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

  3. Whisk together the eggs, coconut milk, and evaporated milk until combined
  4. Whisk the sugar/matcha into the wet ingredients, followed by the mochiko flour mixture.
  5. Gradually stream in the melted butter while whisking the batter, it should be smooth and free of any lumps.
  6. Oil 2 mini muffin tins OR 1 large muffin tin OR 1 8 x 8 inch baking pan. Keep in mind that there will be different bake times for different sizes when baking
  7. Scoop the batter into the muffin tins (mini or large) to fill about 3/4 of the way to the top. OR- pour all the batter into the 8x8 baking pan
  8. Bake until the edges are golden and the center is set, about 15-20 minutes for minis, 20-25 minutes for large muffins, and 40-50 minutes for a baking pan.
  9. Allow to cool in pans before turning out and serving or slicing up.
