This delicious cinnamon sugar mochi cake will knock your socks off!!
If you love mochi and cinnamon, this is the perfect lethal combination. My friends and family know that I love anything cinnamon (except cinnamon toast crunch). I drink my favorite cinnamon tea every morning and it is seriously the best thing you will ever taste! There’s no sugar and it has the perfect amount of natural sweetness. I love cinnamon pita chips, cinnamon scones, cinnamon rolls, etc. One day, I decided I needed to combine cinnamon into my mochi cake and I am so glad I did!
Cinnamon Sugar Mochi Cake
The base is just like my blueberry mochi cake recipe.
- 1 box of Mochiko rice flour
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/4 cups of brown sugar (save 1/2 cup of brown sugar for cinnamon mixture)
- 2 cups of milk
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 5 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 5 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 cups chocolate chips (optional)

Can we take a moment and just look at this photo? This is Emmy 5 1/2 years ago from my blueberry mochi post.
She has grown up so much and loves baking right next to me all these years.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Melt the stick of butter in the microwave. In that same bowl, mix in 3/4 cup of brown sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 5 tsp baking powder, and 3 eggs. Fold in the box of Mochiko rice flour and combine the 2 cups of milk and 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1 tsp cinnamon.
In a small bowl, mix 1/2 cup of brown sugar with 4 tsp of cinnamon.
Spray your pan with some oil. I LOVE my new Nordicware bundt pan. I have been wanting to get one of these for a while now and let me tell you, it does not compare with any other baking pan in the market. The cakes heat evenly and the crust is sooo delicious. The cakes pop out beautifully each and every time from the pan and they clean super easily.
Sprinkle a good amount of that cinnamon sugar on the bottom of your pan. Pour in a little bit of the cake mixture and sprinkle more cinnamon sugar and chocolate chips. Repeat the steps until you pour everything into the pan. Finish it off with the rest of the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Bake for about 45 minutes until the top is nice and browned. Man, these are delicious right out of the oven! The cinnamon sugar crust is ohhhhhhh sooooo delicious.
I tweaked this recipe three times and I also tried it where I just swirled in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Both came out delicious but if you really want that nice cinnamon bite, I recommend going layer by layer.
If you make it, be sure to share it with me! Thanks for reading.
