Oven-baked mochi dipped in maple syrup and topped with cinnamon and toasted pecans. Bakes in under 10 minutes for a unique sweet snack or dessert!
This past weekend I visited Colonial Williamsburg with my cousin, my cousin’s husband, and M for a couples weekend getaway.
Williamsburg has a special place in my heart because it reminds me of the family trips we took there as a kid.
I have fond memories of ginger cakes from The Raleigh Tavern Bakeshop, strolling down Duke of Gloucester Street, and shopping in the market square.
So it was a lot of fun to be there with family and show M all of my favorite spots!
We walked the historic area by day, dined in taverns by night, and spent the after hours at a beautiful Bed & Breakfast.
While historic Colonial Williamsburg doesn’t exactly lend itself to the vegan diet, there were plenty of “hip” places nearer to the William & Mary campus.
It was a lovely weekend, and I came home with a full heart and a well-rested mind.
When we got home, I felt so refreshed and rejuvenated I created this Maple Cinnamon Baked Mochi.
This unique sweet snack or dessert starts with oven-baked mochi dipped in maple syrup and finished with cinnamon and toasted pecans.
It’s the perfect energizing fall bite!
