Mochi Ring Donut

Purchase Location : ampm
Price : 120 Yen
Kcal : 324

Recently many stores around the the Tokyo area carry some type of mochi donut. Out of all of them, this one sold under the brand name Bakery avenue at am/pm convenience stores, is my favorite. The special ingredient that makes these donuts so tasty is of course, mochi.

Mochi is often called “Japanese rice cake.” It is made from glutinous rice that is pounded into a paste and then molded into blocks, or other shapes varying in different levels of consistency. 

The mochi added gives these donuts a great chewy taste and balances the sweetness of the chocolate.

That donut looks mighty yummy! Bet it would be great with a cup of hot coco or some coffee!
