  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C).
  • Make your browned butter. Heat butter over medium heat until it fully melts. Lower the heat to low and cook until the butter is golden brown. Pour into a large mixing bowl and set aside to cool.
  • Add the coconut milk to a small bowl and heat coconut milk in the microwave for 30 seconds. Add the hojicha powder and stir until incorporated. Set aside.
  • Once the butter has cooled down, add the granulated sugar, vanilla extract, and eggs to the bowl. Mix until incorporated.
  • Add the hojicha coconut milk to the bowl and mix.
  • Finally, add the sweet rice flour and baking powder and mix until a smooth, thick mixture forms. The batter will be a bit lumpy, so make sure you use a whisk to mix. The whisk helps you get that smooth texture.
  • Grease a muffin pan. Scoop batter into the muffin pan. Smack the muffin pan 1-2 times on a flat surface to get rid of some of the air bubbles.
  • Bake for 30 minutes until the edges start to brown.
  • Cool for 10 minutes before serving.
