For the mochi dough:

  • 1 cup glutinous rice flour (mochiko flour)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • Cornstarch (for dusting)

For the peach filling:

  • 2 ripe peaches, peeled and diced
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup water


Step 1: Prepare the Peach Filling:

   - In a saucepan, combine diced peaches, granulated sugar, lemon juice, and water.

   - Cook over medium heat until the peaches are soft and the mixture thickens, stirring occasionally.

   - Once done, remove from heat and let the filling cool completely.

Step 2: Make the Mochi Dough:

   - In a microwave-safe bowl, mix glutinous rice flour and granulated sugar.

   - Gradually add water to the flour mixture, stirring until smooth and well combined.

   - Cover the bowl with a microwave-safe lid or microwave-safe wrap.

Step 3: Cook the Mochi Dough:

   - Microwave the mochi dough on high for 1 minute.

   - Carefully remove the bowl from the microwave and stir the mixture with a spatula.

   - Microwave the dough for an additional 30 seconds, then stir again. Repeat this process until the dough becomes thick and sticky (usually takes about 2-3 minutes total).

Step 4: Shape the Mochi:

   - Generously dust a clean surface with cornstarch.

   - Transfer the mochi dough onto the dusted surface and flatten it into a rectangle using your hands or a rolling pin.

Step 5: Assemble the Peach Mochi:

   - Cut the flattened mochi dough into small squares using a sharp knife or cookie cutter.

   - Place a spoonful of the cooled peach filling in the center of each mochi square.

   - Gently fold the edges of the mochi over the filling, pinching them together to seal the peach filling inside.

Step 6: Enjoy the Sweetness:

   - Your delightful Peach Mochi is now ready to be devoured!

   - Serve them fresh and enjoy the heavenly combination of chewy mochi and juicy peach filling.
