Traditional Mooncake

Coconut MooncakeThis recipe shows you how to generate conventional Cantonese mooncakes from scratch with out acquiring golden syrup or kansui. For example, we created thinner white layer in the major photo, we only employed about 1/six of the total skin jelly liquid for white and 5/6 for strawberry. The pandan flavour is light, not too overpowering so you get that slight fragrance but the filling stands out additional. Lastly, the recipe here is developed for miniature mooncakes, which are about 50 to 60 grams in size.

I still sharing the Carol’s filling recipe here, if you choose not milky filling like me, you could refer to my old recipe. The cooked glutinous rice flour is a binder and helps the filling to stick with each other. Subsequently I have also produced gula melaka (palm sugar) with coconut jelly mooncakes and mango jelly mooncakes. Also, the recipe that I utilized had a slightly various ratio of flour to water and icing sugar.

Baked in preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown I omit egg glaze for the mooncake skin. I could dry-fry some glutinous rice flour to generate Koh Fun, but then again I hated the taste of that recipe I employed to use so nah. It takes time and effort to craft recipes and I would appreciate it if you do not copy the recipe and pass it off as your own.

Some of the recipes use unsalted butter or shortening in the dough and/or taro paste, but I personally like the subtle coconut flavor you get from employing coconut oil so I employed that rather. I bought some Tovolo Ice Cream Sandwich moulds to make my mooncakes, because vendors refused to provide a CNY 12.00 (less than $2.00) classic mooncake press for a CNY7.00 delivery fee.

When the mooncake is no longer hot, apply egg wash then bake for an additional 7 minutes until golden brown. I was inspired by those appealing, vibrant and colourful jelly mooncakes on the web and of course those promoting in the stalls. The dough or skin of the mooncake is created by a uncomplicated mixing of golden syrup, alkaline water, peanut oil and flour. Pour in some skin agar agar into mooncake mould (If a see-via impact is preferred (i.e. can see the filling), lessen the amount put in). We ended our mooncake project yesterday with a bottle of champagne and two thick cuts of prime steak. Mooncake lovers in Klang Valley and Kuantan can look forward to Madam Ho Homemade Mooncakes!
