Happy Boy’s Day. May 5th of each year in Hawai’i and Japan we celebrate boy’s day. Just as we celebrate Mother’s Day and Father’s day. 

Mochi is a traditional Japanese treat commonly made on boy’s day. You can check out my classic mochi recipe here. I’ve also shared various mochi recipes on my blog, which also can be found here.

This year for boy’s day we will definitely be making mochi, per my son’s request. But I thought I’d also share another mochi recipe. My mochi waffle recipe has been such a hit, I decided to share another mochi waffle recipe. . .UBE MOCHI WAFFLES.

  2. Tried this recipe the other night, and soooooo easy and good!!! I believe I followed the recipe measurements, but the batter did come out a bit runny for me and as a result, I was a bit afraid to overload my waffle maker for fear of overflow. Next time, I’ll add more mochiko as Relle suggested in a comment reply. Nevertheless though I came out with hole-ly waffles, it still cooked well and my family loved it. Oh and the glaze takes this over the edge!!! Remembering it for the next time I want to change up my plain waffles or pancakes. Thanks, Relle!
