Green tea mochi cake is definitely a staple dessert in my household. It's deliciously chewy, not too sweet and has a light, subtle green tea flavour. Plus since they're bite-sized, I don't feel too guilty eating a couple of them after dinner! This simple dessert is quick and easy to whip up to impress any crowd!
