Hungry? Want a Moffle?

What is a moffle?

Mochi is Japanese rice cakes made from pounded sticky rice. Someone had the great idea to turn them into a mochi waffle! Apparently, they are kind of crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. Here is the mochi press.
To make a moffle you add a piece of mochi (there are different kinds-thin sliced and regular rectangle shaped mochi). then close the press and it comes out looking like a waffle. If you want a stuffed moffle (like a sandwich) then you add 1 thinly sliced mochi and then you add some meat or other filling. Then top with another piece of mochi.
Then, close the press and when you open.....
In the picture above you get a kind of sandwich or stuffed waffle/moffle!

Here are some pictures to show you what you can make using the mochi press.








Seriously will have to talk to my honey about getting one of these!!!

The prices really vary depending on size and ...not sure why else they vary as I can't read all the Japanese but they sure do vary! I think we might get a double one in the next few weeks as my honey is also trying to go gluten free and this would allow him to eat some cool food!
