The Mooncake or Lantern Festival which is a traditional harvest festival that is celebrated annually by Chinese will take place sometime between 11 Sep- 10 Oct in Singapore. I know this is still early to post anything related to Mid Autumn Festival, as the Chinese celebrate the Mid Autumn Festival on the 15th day of the eighth Chinese Lunar month, it should be on 3 Oct this year. But this year I want to try making my own snow skin mooncakes as WT and I are not big fan of the traditional mooncakes as the ingredients used are far too oily for us.
These are my first snow skin mooncakes (冰皮月饼 pingpi mooncakes). I was inspired to create these mooncakes after reading the Pingpi Mooncakes recipe by Wong Sip Moi. However, I made it in an easy way. I bought the premix snow skin mixture which requires to add water and shortening, knead and chill the dough. Strawberry and mango fruit frangance and colouring are added to the snow skin. For the filling inner layer I used the dragon fruit paste and chocolate lotus paste for the outer layer. The snow skin is not yet a perfect combination. It would be better if the skin dough is chilled overnight to give an even firm texture.
Steps to create double colour tone on the skin:
1. Flatten the yellow mango dough on the table, place the pink strawberry dough on the yellow dough.
2. Roll them up in swiss roll way. Cut into require portions, place the cut side upward. Flatten the dough to create double colour tone. ^_^

Lena, premix snow skin is without the taste and colour, you have to add what you want. Phoon Huat is selling the premix snow skin.ReplyDelete
Hanushi, I got the premix from Phoon Huat. After adding the flavour it taste better, but I suggest adding real fruit puree will be better.ReplyDelete
Very pretty colours and the words are so clear! How's the taste of the paste? Good? You get from PH?ReplyDelete
SSB, yes, I bought the paste from PH at Chip Bee Garden. I like the paste, chocolate lotus paste has a strong chocolate flavour and the dragon fruit taste like real dragon fruit.ReplyDelete
