These mochi donuts are crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, and almost too gorgeous to eat. Almost!
Mochi donuts are a kind of Japanese-American donut. They are made with sweet rice flour and tapioca starch, then deep-fried. They have a crisp exterior with a chewy interior and are usually made in a bubble ring that resembles a baby’s teething ring.
Mix up the dough in a big bowl. Stir until everything is combined.
Pipe small dots of dough onto parchment paper. Then fry them with the parchment paper so that they hold the bubble ring shape!
Place your fried mochi donuts on a paper towel to drain off excess oil.
The pink glaze is made with dragon fruit powder and the blue glaze is made with butterfly pea powder!
Dip each donut in the glaze, then place the donuts on a cooling rack to let the glaze harden. Top with a drizzle of vanilla glaze if you like!
Take a big bite and enjoy your homemade mochi donuts!
