Osmanthus Oolong Tea Snow Skin Mooncake ~ 桂花乌龙冰皮月饼 ~ 2015


Festivals come and go and the Mid-Autumn Mooncake festival is no exception.  Honestly, I'm running out of ideas what sort of flavours that I want to create for my moonies this year.  I love the design of this mould and since I could get hold of it from a good friend, and with the Oolong tea paste that I had, didn't hesitate to make these snowskin mooncakes with Osmanthus flavour.  The Osmanthus fragrance complements the tea infused lotus paste perfectly and is indeed a good combination.








Recipe for Osmanthus Oolong Tea Snow Skin Mooncake ~ 桂花乌龙冰皮月饼  ~ 2015

Ingredients
  • 75 gm kao fun
  • 75 gm icing sugar
  • 24 gm shortening
  • 94 ml Osmanthus tea
  • 240 gm Oolong tea paste
Method
  1. Make Osmanthus flower tea and let steep for a few mins.  Strain and chill in the fridge.
  2. Sift kao fun and icing sugar, mix well.
  3. Rub in shortenng till it resembles bread crumbs.
  4. Gradually add in the chilled Osmanthus tea and mix till just combined to form a ball of dough. 
  5. Knead lightly to get a smooth dough.   (Overmixing will result in a rough piece of dough).
  6. Cover and let rest for about 15 mins.
  7. Scale the dough into 24 gm portions, roll into balls.
  8. Scale the Oolong tea paste into 24 gm portions, roll into balls. 
  9. Flatten each ball of dough and wrap round a ball of filling.  Roll into a ball.
  10. Lightly dust the mould with some kao fun and press the ball into the mould.  Unmould.
  11. Yield :  10 pieces 
  12. Place a piece of kitchen paper towel over the mooncakes to absorb any water from condensation, keep in an airtight container, chill in the fridge.  These mooncakes stayed fresh for 4 days.

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!
