Read our disclosure policy. These matcha mochi waffles are crispy on the outside, yet chewy on the inside. They’re best enjoyed fresh from the waffle maker while they’re still warm. Today we’re celebrating Sarah of Snixy Kitchen and her #cheesebabygirl! It’s a party and I’m sharing this matcha mochi waffles sundae. I had the pleasure of meeting Sarah in 2014 at a blogging event. Within seconds of talking to her, I immediately knew we’d become friends. We bonded over our love of matcha. We exchanged stories about our travels and food adventures in Japan and Taiwan. Sarah talked about cats and I about dogs. Sarah is one of those people that make you so comfortable and at ease that it feels like you’ve know each other forever. She’s so sweet, kind, and so unbelievably helpful and thoughtful. I’m certain #cheesebabygirl will have all these wonderful qualities and more. Matcha Mochi Waffles The theme of #cheesebabygirl shower is cheese and sweets (Sarah’s favorites!). Being lactose-intolerant, I don’t venture much with cheese. Sweets, however, is my forte. I spent some time thinking what to make for this virtual baby shower. I would have loved to make a cake, but my knowledge of gluten-free cakes are very limited. (I’m working on it!) One gluten-free flour I do have plenty of experience with: sweet rice flour. I thought about making mochi or steamed rice cake, until I remembered Lady and Pups’ amazing looking molten truffles mochiffles. These matcha mochi waffles are crispy on the outside, yet chewy on the inside. They’re best enjoyed fresh from the waffle maker while they’re still warm. Unlike your traditional waffles, these need no maple syrup. Although it’s not very sweet, these waffles taste great simply on their own. But since we’re celebrating…we’re turning these mochi waffles into a sundae! Add a scoop of ice cream (vanilla or matcha!), a drizzle of caramel sauce, a handful of sprinkles, and a cherry on top! Congratulations Sarah and Lucas! We’re all so excited and happy for you. Until #cheesebabygirl’s arrival, let’s eat all the matcha mochi waffle sundaes!
