Lotus with Ferrero Rocher mooncake ~ 2015


When I saw a mooncake post with Ferrero Rocher on My Little Space's blog, last year,  I was very much taken in by Kristy's idea.  The Ferrero Rocher will be a very good 'stand in' for a salted egg yolk and I'm sure that the lotus paste with some nutty chocolate will be a good combination too.









Recipe for Lotus with Ferrero Rocher Mooncake ~ 2015

Ingredients

  • 150 gm superfine flour
  • 90 ml golden syrup
  • 38 ml vegetable oil
  • 2 gm alkaline water

Method
  1. Use a handwhisk to mix  the golden syrup, oil and alkaline water till no oil surfaces.  Sift in the superfine flour. Mix lightly to form a dough.  Cover and let rest for a few hours.  (I let it rest for 4 hours).
  2. Scale dough to 50 gm each, roll into a ball.
  3. Scale filling to 100 gm each, wrap a Ferrero Rocher inside the ball of filling.
  4. Flatten the piece of dough with a rolling pin, wrap a ball of filling inside, roll into a ball.
  5. Press the ball of dough inside a plunger mould of 170 gm, press out and remove the mould
  6. Place mooncakes onto a parchment lined baking tray. lightly spray on some water.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 eg.C for about 180 deg.C for  20 mins., remove from oven and let cool for 15 mins.  Then apply egg glaze and bake again for about 7 mins. @ 175 deg.C.
  8. Let mooncakes rest  ( 回油) for about 3 to 4 days before consuming.
  9. Yield :  6 mooncakes.

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Pandan Ombre Butter Cake ~ 班蘭牛油蛋糕

Whenever I want to make a butter cake, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe will come to my mind.  Her recipe is foolproof and you can use it as a basic recipe and play around with variations of flavours to your liking.  Today, I'm sharing with you a Pandan Ombre Butter Cake.  I've used pandan paste instead of pandan juice as I need to have a distinct green colour to bring out the 'Ömbre' effect, which is from a darker to a lighter shade of green.  I'm pleased with the result and the texture of this cake is soft and moist and it still stays in this manner even after the third day, kept in an airtight container.

To Fu( Beancurd) Bridge ~ 跨桥豆腐

When I was recommended to try this dish in a restaurant, I was both hesitant and at the same time intrigued by its name.  I've heard of the song 'Bridge over troubled water' but Tofu crossing the bridge?  So to satisfy everyone's curiosity, we agreed to give it a try.  It's a nutritious dish with a good source of protein in the Tofu pork and egg all in one.  It was just tasty and delicious to go with a bowl of steaming hot white rice!
