Our Life In Singapore

Japanese MooncakeThe Mid-Autumn Festival is 1 of the two largest festivals that is celebrated in China every single year. These countries are Malaya, Sarawak, North Borneo (later renamed Sabah) and Singapore. I never typically gush about red beans but these are made from azuki beans (because it is named Japanese red bean) so it is mildly sweet and it has that beautiful azuki bean flavour. I bot the mochi and daifuku flour from Anna Phua, but she was not around…had to attend classes to find out how to make both. Lightly dust your mold and location the mooncake ball into it. Press it really hard to firm the imprint.

This Mid-Autumn holiday festival is celebrated on its 15th day of the 8th lunar month. Suzhou -style mooncakes function each sweet and savory types, the latter served hot and typically filled with pork mince. Aside from these daifuku mooncakes, Shou Xin Fang also sells Dorayaki pancakes, yoghurt mochi mooncakes, mochi truffles and mixed cheese dessert that can be purchased for the Mid-Autumn festival. The baked mooncake has a shortbread casing with a chocolate and truffle cheese filling, when the snow skin mooncake has a Marsala wine and tiramisu filling.

I attempted the mochi flour purchased from Phoon Huat but my mooncakes don’t appear tranparent, my look like snow skin & when place in the fridge, they turned difficult. The traditional ones with Lotus Paste, the Durian flavoured ones, the ones with a Chocolate-and-Rum cream center, and almost certainly most of all, the Snow Skin Mooncakes (which is truly 90% of the mooncakes I consume in Singapore).

Tran fills her moon cake pastries with Japanese sweet potato with cinnamon and ginger as effectively as supplying seasonal quince with orange. Chewy Nutty Cranberry Mooncake is specially created with lots of fillings comprising of cranberries, orange peels, wide variety of nuts and melon kernel seeds with a savory twist of salted egg centre. Even though bakeries begin selling mooncakes early, these are constantly out of stock as the festival draws close to.

This Mooncake is also specially created in support of Starbucks Connecting Communities in Malaysia Project In which, RM1 will be contributed to developing a Computer Center for the youngsters of Kampung Lubuk Jaya with just about every set bought employing a Starbucks Card. Comparable baked goods have long been enjoyed by the chinese at most Chinese celebrations before mooncake come around and turn into inextricably linked with the mid-autumn festival.
