Chai Tea Snowskin mini Mooncake 2020 ~ 柴茶冰皮月饼

 

This time, I experimented with Chai Tea to act as a flavour for the dough skin of this 'Bing Pi',  冰皮 mooncake.  These non-baked snowskin mooncakes are soft, slightly chewy and can be referred to as mochi mooncake too.  Nowadays snowskin mooncakes are gaining popularity and like their baked counterparts, they can house different flavours of lotus paste as well.





Chai Tea Snowskin mini Mooncake 2020  ~  柴茶冰皮月饼  
Ingredients
  • 65 gm Kao Fun (fried glutinous rice flour)
  • 18 gm wheat starch
  • 18 gm superfine flour
  • 50 gm icing sugar
  • 25 gm Crisco shortening
  • 60 ml water
  • 1 Tbsp Chai Tea
  • 240 gm lotus paste for filling
Method
  1. Mix wheat starch and superfine flour thoroughly, steam on medium heat for 3 minutes.  Let cool.  Sift into a mixing bowl.
  2. Sift in kao fun and mix well.  
  3. Steep Chai Tea bag in about 1/4 cup hot water.
  4. In a pot, boil water with shortening and icing sugar.  Once shortening and icing sugar have melted, pour this into the flour mixture.  Add in a tablespoon of Chai Tea.  Using a spatula, mix thoroughly and  lightly knead till smooth.  Cling wrap and let dough rest for 30 minutes.
  5. Weigh out 24 gm lotus paste and roll into a ball.  Likewise, weigh out 24 gm of dough and roll into a ball.
  6. Flatten the ball of dough and wrap up the lotus paste filling.  Roll into a ball and place it into a 50 gm plunger mould.  Press out the mooncake.   Repeat process for the rest of the dough.
  7. Place mooncakes in a container and  cover with a piece of paper towel to absorb condensation.  Chill in the fridge.  (These mini snowskin mooncakes stay fresh and soft even after 5 days).
  8. Yield :  10 mini snowskin mooncakes
Note :  If you prefer a stronger flavour of Chai Tea, add more but reduce the water accordingly.

Have a wonderful Mid-Autum Festival with your family and friends.  
Happy Bonding and Stay Safe!

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead.

Bika Ambon Panggang ~ 印尼糕

Kuih Bika Ambon or Honeycomb cake is an Indonesian dessert and from the outset it looks quite challenging to attempt baking this cake in order to achieve a honeycomb pattern.   There are many recipes online and I also googled for Indonesian recipes and watched the video on youtube.  I was looking for a recipe that is not so complicating but straightforward and I managed to come across Whattocooktoday's blog and found her recipe.  I was very delighted when the cake turned out to be a success.  Thanks, Marvellina!   Bika Ambon Panggang  ~   印尼糕 ( adapted from  'here'  with adjustments)   Ingredients for : - Yeast mixture 2 tsp dry yeast 1 Tbsp plain flour 1 Tbsp sugar 2 Tbsp warm water Coconut Milk 350 ml coconut milk 160 gm sugar 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 10 kaffir lime leaves (tear to smaller pieces) 2 lemon grass, bruised for flavour Cake Batter 180 gm tapioca flour 1/4 tsp salt 5 large eggs   Method Mix the ingredients in the Yeast mixture and set aside to let it ferment.
