Demochi Is Delivering DIY Kits So You Can Make Mini Mochi Doughnut Balls At Home

Back in 2019, ​the latest dessert craze landed in Sydney, when Demochi Donut opened on the streets of Banksia. Owner Dennis Chan (Dirty Bird food truck) somehow managed to fuse the airy, crispy elements of a doughnut with that chewy mochi texture — and, unsurprisingly, tastebuds were immediately tempted.

Chan started working on these mochi masterpieces after finding a similar fusion doughnut served at a shop in Tokyo. He spent over five years perfecting his own recipe, and then finally released the blended sweet to the masses. Now, he's letting Sydneysiders make a version at home, too, thanks to Demochi's new DIY mini mochi doughnut ball kits.

Reflecting the huge amount of time we're all now spending within our own four walls, DIY kits have been popping up frequently in 2020 — spanning everything from deep-fried ice cream to cannoli. We're betting that your stomach is always hungry for these tiny mochi-doughnut hybrids, though, with each of Demochi's kits letting you make 50 doughnut balls.

For $25 plus shipping, you'll receive flour mix, original honey glaze, a piping bag and, crucially, instructions on exactly how to whip up your next sweet treat. Expect to spend about 20 minutes in the kitchen, and, if you need some guidance, Demochi has also put together a how-to video:
