Pandan Black Sesame Snow Skin Mooncakes ~ 2013


Pandan  Snow Skin or Ping Pei Mooncakes are one of my favourite in the ping pei range of mooncakes.  This time I added in some black sesame seeds to it.  I dare not take the plunge to toss in more sesame seeds as I was afraid that the tiny black dots will mar the design of these mini mooncakes.












Recipe for Pandan Black Sesame Snow Skin Mooncakes




    Ingredients
    • 100 gm koh fun/cooked glutinous rice flour
    • 100 gm icing sugar
    • 32 gm shortening
    • 125 ml ice cold pandan juice
    • 2.1/2 tsp lightly toasted black sesame seeds
    • 60 gm or more Pandan/Screwpine leaves
    • 150 ml or a bit more boiled water
    • 500 gm Lotus paste
    • 20 gm lightly toasted melon seeds.
     Method
    1. Wash, cut the Pandan leaves into small pieces, add in boiled water, blend and squeeze out the juice.  Pour into a measuring cup, keep in the fridge for about 2 to 3 days to let the residue settle.
    2. Sift the koh fun and icing sugar into a mixing bowl, mix well.
    3. Add and rub in the shortening till resemble bread crumbs.
    4. Gradually add in the chilled Pandan juice and black sesame seeds and mix till just combined.  (Do not overmix).  Cover and let rest for 15 mins.
    5. Scale into 25 gm balls of dough.
    6. Mix the Lotus paste with the melon seeds.
    7. Roll into balls of 35 gm each.
    To assemble the mooncake
    1. Flatten the dough in between 2 plastic sheets, wrap up the ball of filling, roll into a ball.
    2. Press into a flour dusted mould.  Press out and dislodge the mooncake.
    3. Place mooncakes in a container and cover with a piece of kitchen towel to absorb any condensation.
    4. Keep refrigerated  before serving.
    5. Yield : about 13 pieces of  mooncake.

  1. Hi Cheah,

    Your mooncakes have two very fragrant ingredients, pandan and black sesame seeds! Wow! I can imagine that your mooncakes must be extra-fragrant with this combination.

Chicken Floss Cake ~ 鸡肉松蛋糕

It's normal to find buns coated with meat floss in any bakery, but yet to find a meat floss coated piece of cake.  I saw this Chicken Floss Cake on youtube and was eager to give this a shot.  The recipe is quite similar to a chiffon cake and I was curious to find out the taste which should be slightly sweetish and saltish.  Wouldn't it be weird, I wonder.  But it turned out that the taste is rather unique with a light and soft texture and my family members gave me a thumbs up and asked for more!
