A mooncake is a delicately-stuffed round sweet cake that is delicious to consume and good to look at. The cake is frequently provided as a gift between family members and buddies throughout the Mid-autumn Festival or Mooncake Festival to show greetings. I am sorry to hear you didn’t have enough dough (last time, I doubled the recipe and was just about correct, did not have any leftover coconut filling, at least did the rest of the ones come out okay?) I hope so. Lately I saw a Youtube video on how to make mooncakes and I saw these plastic mooncake moulds in the types of cookie presses! Very first you pour some agar agar into the mooncake mould and let set slightly, put in your filling and pour the balance agar agar and fill it to the brim. Hope you uncover your favourite sort of mooncake for this upcoming auspicious festival!

Coconut milk and pandan juice typically go properly with each other in producing Chinese dessert.
The InterContinental Singapore’s 20th Anniversary Collector’s Edition (S$105) includes their newest restricted edition baked maple-glazed Shanghai mooncake with single yolk. The lesser skin you use, the additional filling you’re going to require, the much more mooncakes you are going to be able to make with this recipe. I made the desiccate coconut myself by roasting the fresh coconut in the oven more than slow heat. It helps promote malliard reaction (crisping and browning in baked goods), allow the flour to absorb water far better and makes the final product a lot more chewy. My first try in generating jelly mooncakes for the Mid-Autumn festival celebration.
If you don’t have a mooncake mould, you can use a jelly mould or any other mould that comes in handy to you. You can make your personal fried glutinous rice flour by steaming raw glutinous rice (about 40 minutes for 180 grams) and then dry frying it in a pan until it becomes lightly browned. After unmold from the container, scratch the surface with wooden skewer so that it can stick better in the mooncake.
I applied coconut oil simply because I thought it would be enjoyable to add a touch of coconut flavor to the filling, but lard is most conventional right here, and shortening would perform as effectively. For vanilla flavour – mix cold water with 1/four teaspoon with vanilla bean paste then add into the flour mixture. Aiyoh, I ought to have study your post ahead of I attempt in generating the mooncake , because the mooncake skin I produced is incredibly difficult even the second day now, and not brown at all even though I have baked for 20-25 mins already. Boil sugar, agar-agar powder and water with pandan leaves in a pot until agar agar and sugar dissolves.
