What Is a Mochi Donut?

Mochi donuts are a cross between a classic American donut and Japanese mochi. Also called pon de ring donuts, mochi donuts are made with rice flour, which gives them a soft, stretchy, almost bouncy texture (described as “mochi-mochi”). It’s a lot different than the texture of cake donuts, but still so delicious!
