Crispy Matcha Mooncakes With Sweet Red Bean Paste 脆皮抹茶紅豆月餅

Last week I posted the recipe for sugar-free mooncakes (read about my blog post, Sugar-Free Crispy Matcha Mooncakes With Sweet Red Bean Paste). This time I'm sharing an almost identical one except that  real cane sugar was used. The pastry dough contains slightly less liquid and browns more easily than the sugar-free version.

Durian Snow Skin Mooncakes 榴槤冰皮月餅

This is my last snow skin mooncake recipe of year 2017. I added a small amount of pandan juice to the dough for color so that the pandan flavor would not be too overpowering. The filling was made solely with durian and I bought frozen durian since fresh ones were way too expensive here in … Continue reading Durian Snow Skin Mooncakes 榴槤冰皮月餅

Here’s another snow skin mooncake that I made today. I’ve come up with a more efficient way to flatten the dough and you will see a video demonstration at the end of the blog post. 這是今天製作的冰皮月餅,EC拍了短片示範包餡及印模過程,亦在片中分享了心得。 Make sure to have your dough and filling both thoroughly chilled before you begin wrapping and shaping.

Chestnut Chocolate Lava Snow Skin Mooncakes 栗子朱古力流心冰皮月餅

Crispy Red Bean and Black Sesame Red Bean Mooncakes 脆皮蛋黃豆沙及黑芝麻豆沙月餅

I’ve fallen in love with this style of mooncakes ever since I learned making them. The flaky crust is just so good! Another great thing is that the crust of crispy mooncakes is thicker than that of traditional Cantonese ones. The wrapping process has now become a piece of cake. 自從學懂做脆皮月餅後,EC己被那酥脆的餅皮迷倒。脆皮月餅的餅皮比廣式月餅厚,因此包餡也就沒有什麼難度,做月餅時倍感輕鬆! Last week I baked … Continue reading Crispy Red Bean and Black Sesame Red Bean Mooncakes 脆皮蛋黃豆沙及黑芝麻豆沙月餅

Crispy Coconut Sweet Potato Mooncakes 脆皮椰香蕃薯月餅
