Hihi,This is my attempt using your recipe… They r yummy, stay soft very long,,, Thanks.
Thank you for trying. Have a lovely weekend 🙂
How do you make green tea lotus paste? :O
This green tea lotus was store bought.
Hi Ann, I wonder why my snowskin mooncakes cracks after refrigeration. Is it the skin is too thin or insufficient fluids?
Hi Joanne, Are you following my recipe using KCT premix? What is your measurement for the dough skin and filling?
Hi Anncoo. where you bought the kao fen from ? also KCT ? thanks
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.https://www.anncoojournal.com/2012/09/oinkoinkim-back.html
Hi Anncoo,Thanks for your quick reply. I will take a look on that recipe.
Very cute pictures
Thank you 🙂
Hi Ann,Would you mind to share the website where you get this beautiful rose moon cake mould? Thanks in advance! Really nice moon cake you have. Will definitely try out your recipe shared here!
Thanks Ann, will try kitchen capers!
Hi Honey boy, I think Kitchen Capers got this mould.
thanks for sharing.I 'd love to try out. However, in the ingredients – 45g Ordinary Kao Fen225g Snowskin flour (KWT Pinpe Premix Powder. I don't even know what is call in the US?
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.
All your mooncakes are breathtakinlgy beautiful. When I read through the recipes, it does not seem so difficult to make, but i am not sure I am ready to try yet:) The molds are very pretty too! and i love this one. the snow skin covers look much tender than the store bought ones that we were given.
Ann, gorgeous snowskins and I really like the mold design. Haven't seen this one yet!
@Honey Bee SweetsThank you Bee Bee. It's great to know you thru blogging 🙂
These are gorgeous, Anncoo!
Gorgeous cake! Thanks for linking up to Sweets for a Saturday.

Lyn, I think as long as it is kao fen, the water is about the same but is the quality that matters.
