To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I received this book as a gift. It is a beautiful book with delicious looking pictures. A story or some fun information comes with each recipe. It was a fun cookbook to read, even if I didn’t make anything from it.
But I did make the coconut mochi. I made it for a potluck dinner and it was a hit!
Everyone was asking me about the ingredients and whether it was difficult. I don’t often bake things with rice flour, but I was told it can be a pain to work with. This recipe is super easy. Really just mix everything together, bake and everyone is happy.
What I appreciated about this recipe is the simplicity, from the ingredients to the steps. For one thing, I didn’t have to do much measuring. The recipe calls for the whole box of rice flour and full cans of coconut milk. While it was baking, the house was filled with this delicious smell. We had guests over at the time, and they couldn’t stop commenting on how great it smelled. Even though I made it for a later event, I had to cut into the mochi to give everyone a taste. It wouldn’t be right that they smelled that mochi and couldn’t try it!
The book itself is full of a good variety of recipes...fruity ones, with and without nuts. While the book had some recipes that are more complicated, there are also many healthier versions of familiar favorites. I enjoyed working with the recipes in this book and look forward to baking some more!
