Green Tea Snowskin Mooncake

83 comments
This is my last mooncake post for Mooncake Festival that is tomorrow. I made Green Tea Snowskin Mooncake with another type of snowskin flour (Pinpe Premix  Powder) from Kwong Cheong Thye (广祥泰) that comes with a recipe. The snowskin dough is very easy to handle. In the beginning, you'll find that the dough is quite oily after boiling the liquid. But you'll be surprised that the dough is not oily at all after it has cooled down and the texture is very smooth like Japanese mochi. I've added some green tea powder in the boiling water to get its natural colour and you can get the taste of mild green tea fragrant flavour with the combination of the green tea lotus paste ..... simply delicious. I will definitely want to use this snowskin flour for the next Mid-Autumn Festival for sure.

  


I am submitting this post to Aspiring Bakers #11: Mid-Autumn Treats (September 2011) hosted by



Here is the recipe
45g Ordinary Kao Fen
225g Snowskin flour (KCT Pinpe Premix Powder)

60g Icing sugar
45g Shortening
350g Water
1/2 tsp Green tea powder

Boil 350g water and green tea powder together and cover with lid, simmer at lower heat for 5 minutes, leave to cool. Stir well and measure green tea water to 300g.

  • Combine kao fen and snowskin flour (KWT Pinpe Premix Powder) in a large bowl and set aside.
  • In a pot, mix 300g green tea water with icing sugar and shortening together and bring them to boil until shortening melted, stir with a hand whisk.
  • Pour the hot liquid mixture to the flour and use spatula to stir mixture to soft dough and leave dough to cool (you'll find the dough is quite oily at this time) then knead dough again to smooth.
  • Measure dough to 22g and wrap in 25g green tea lotus paste.
  • Roll it into a ball and dust with some cooked glutinous rice flour (Gao fen 糕粉).
  • Press firmly into mould ~~unmould it and store in airtight container.
  • Chill green tea snowskin mooncake before consume.
Kitchen note: Updated 2012- please refer to my snowskin recipe here for the new adjustment on the snowskin premix flour.

At the same time I'm very happy that the following bloggers had successfully tried my mooncake recipes. Thank you friends and hope that all of you had enjoyed making the mooncakes.
Readers please visit their sites, check on their posts and I'm sure they'll be delighted if you can leave them a comment.



To those of you who celebrate, I wish you a Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

  11. Another gorgeous mooncake! The multi colored one is very pretty too. I am really interested in snow skin mooncake as it is gluten-free and my son can eat it. Unfortunately, we can't find the flour here. Will have to cook the glutinous flour and lotus paste myself....a lot of work. Will try it one of these days :)

    Thank you Biren. The multi colored one was actually from the remaining coloured dough, just nice for one mini size.
    Is not easy to cook lotus paste and glutinous flour at home. Hope you can find the ready made one day.

  55. @Ꮮуռ (ᶬˠ ᶩᶤᵗᵗᶥᵋ ᵐᵋˢˢᵞ ᴻ ᶜʱᵋᵋᵏᵞ)
    Lyn, I think as long as it is kao fen, the water is about the same but is the quality that matters.

    ReplyDelete
  56. @Anncoo Ok noted. Thank you so much for sharing everything that you know, Ann! :D
    I agree with you: "it's the quality that matters."

    1. I'm really sorry about it. I don't think you can get the kao fen or snowskin flour in US. I think they only available in Asia.

  65. Hi Anncoo. where you bought the kao fen from ? also KCT ? thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Jessica, the premix is from KCT and kao fen can buy from any bakery ingredient shops.
      If you want to use KCT premix snowskin flour, please follow on my 2012 post. There was some slight adjustment on the recipe.
