Cranberry Snowskin Mooncake ~ 蔓越莓冰皮月饼 ~ 2016


These non-baked Cranberry Snowskin Mooncakes make an ideal gift for your friends during the Mid-Autumn festival.  Making these mooncakes is not so time-consuming as you don't need to  bake them and they do look cute and pretty when made in different colours.  These Cranberry Snowskin moonies remain soft and chewy even after being chilled in the fridge for four days.

Ingredients  
  • 100 gm kao fun
  • 100 gm  icing sugar (sifted)
  • 32 gm Crisco shortening
  • 125 ml ice water  (boil 1 cup of water with some pandan leaves, strain and leave

  6. Lightly flatten the dough with a rolling pin, the edges thinner than the centre, put in the ball of paste, wrap it up and  place it into the mould.  Stamp out the snowskin mooncake.
  7. Place snowskin mooncakes  into a container and put a piece of paper kitchen  towel over the snowskin mooncakes to absorb any condensation.  Cover the snowskin mooncakes and chill in the refrigerator.  
  8. Yield :  14 snowskin mooncakes

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try.

Black Bean Sauce Chicken ~ 黑豆酱鸡

  This is an easy peasy chicken dish to whip up in the kitchen which can pair well with plain white rice or plain congee.  Ingredients are not complicated and mostly available in the kitchen, but it's best to season the chicken first before stir frying them. Black Bean Sauce Chicken   ~   黑豆酱鸡 Ingredients 450 gm  chicken, cut into bite size (whole leg of chicken and breast) 2 tsp black bean sauce 4 pips of garlic, chopped 1 big onion cut into wedges 1 chilli, chopped 1 small Carrot, cut into slices Curry leaves Bit of sugar to taste Method Season the chicken with a pinch of salt. Saute the chopped garlic with the curry leaves and black bean sauce till fragrant. Add in the seasoned chicken, stir fry and sprinkle on some water if the dish is too dry. Simmer till chicken is cooked and tender. Add in the sliced carrot and onion wedges.  Fine tune to taste with a bit of sugar. Toss in the chopped chilli. Dish up to serve.
