Ube Mochi Donuts

Coconut Glaze


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C).
  • Prep donut pan by greasing it with oil or butter. I used a donut pan with donut molds that are 3 inches in diameter. Set aside.
  • Brown your butter. Heat butter over medium heat until it melts. Lower the heat to low and cook until brown bits start to appear. Pour into a large bowl. Let it cool for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the brown sugar and egg. Mix until incorporated.
  • Add the coconut milk, ube extract, ube halaya, vanilla extract, and salt. Mix until well incorporated.
  • Add the sweet rice flour and baking powder. Mix until incorporated.
  • Spoon the dough into a pastry bag or Ziploc bag. Pipe the donuts into the prepared donut pans.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let donuts cool in the donut pan for 10 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • While the donuts are cooling, combine all the ingredients for the glaze. Mix and set aside.
  • Dip the donuts into the glaze and enjoy!


  1. Rest your dough if it feels a little wet - If your dough feels a little wet, rest it for 5 minutes to allow it to dry out a bit before piping into the donut pan.
  2. Use a Ziploc bag to pipe donuts into donut pan - I tried to spoon the batter into the donut molds, but I ended up making a mess. That’s how I ended up using a Ziploc bag to pipe them into the molds. It’s a lot quicker, and there is less mess. You can also use a pastry bag if you have them!
  3. How do you store mochi donuts? - These donuts should last up to 3 days at room temperature in an airtight container and up to 3 months in the freezer.
  4. Can I reduce the sugar in these donuts? - Yes you can, but make sure to reduce the sweet rice flour accordingly. For every 1 tablespoon reduction in sugar, reduce the sweet rice flour by 1 1/2 teaspoon.
