Tau Huay (Soya Milk) Jelly Mooncakes 豆奶仙草菜燕月饼
- For making grass jelly filling - use round plastic cup that is smaller than the jelly mould. (see picture)
- Boil water, sugar, agar agar powder and pandan leaves together in a pot at medium heat.
- Keep stirring mixture with a hand whisk until liquid boiled. Discard pandan leaves and off heat. Add grass jelly strips into it, stir well with a spoon for another minute.
- Pour grass jelly liquid into 12 plastic cups evenly and leave to set in fridge for about 15 minutes.
- For Tau Huay (Soya Milk) Jelly - mix all ingredients in a pot, bring to boil at medium heat.
- Keep stirring during the process so that it will not be burnt. Off heat and stir for another minutes.
- Pour some soya milk liquid into moulds till half full. Gently scratch set grass jelly filling with a sharp knife. This will make the agar agar jellies stick together.
- Place one piece of grass jelly filling in each mould, then fill up the mould with soya milk.
- Cool and chill jelly mooncakes to set in the refrigerator
- 250克 清水
- 3.5汤匙 糖
- 1茶匙 菜燕粉
- 2叶 香兰叶

Let’s keep calm and eat Tau Huay 🙂

I definitely prefer this to the traditional mooncakes. It is so refreshing. I also have the same question as Tim.
You are so creative. What a great use of ingredients to make these Jelly Moomcakes. I say, they are better than the traditional ones. 🙂
Thank you. I enjoyed this cooling dessert especially during the hot weather.
looks like a lot of work but i guess it's worth is as they looks delicious
Really hope you make this at home. Not a lot of work lah, can be done within 45 mins 🙂
Hi Ann,Great idea!Can I ask one thing? How do you ensure that the grass jelly filling ends up in the middle part of the mooncake? I would imagine that the set grass jelly filling would either float or sink in the soya milk liquid.
Hi Tim & Phong Hong,When you add the first half liquid to all the moulds, by the time when you come back to the first one the liquid is almost semi set. If you find the grass jelly filling sinks to the bottom you can use a fork to lift it up a little. You have to work this quickly because the soya milk and grass jelling filling will not stick together if the soya milk liquid is already cool down.
Creative! hi Ann, where did u buy those jelly mould ?
I bought this mould at PH few years ago.
Hi, though is the first time I post on this blog but have been following it regularly. Those pictures make me drool and will definitely find sometime to make it. Thumbs up! ~ SK
Thank you very much for your lovely words…er…your name please 🙂
I love your jelly mooncakes… 🙂 So pretty…
These mooncakes look wonderful ! Way too pretty to eat actually ! lol Great job , Ann !
Thank you for trying my recipe. Your jelly mooncake looks very lovely!
Thanks! How long can the moon cake last if I refrigerate it ?
You mean this agar agar mooncake? Store it in a box and can last for a week as long as your jelly is not too watery. Remember to keep stirring the liquid when boiling.
Hi, I hv tried your recipe twice but the tau huay dont seems to set, very soft. Any idea? Do I have to add some more agar agar powder?
Hi AnnThanks for the tips! I think I will give it a try again, if not I'm not satisfied. Keep you posted! 🙂
Hi Janice, When boiling agar agar you need to keep stirring the liquid and after switching off the fire, stir for another 1-2 minutes. This method will harden the jelly after chilled.
Hi AnnGood news! Succeed after the 5th rounds…thanks for the tips! It helps but I did add 1tsp of agar-agar powder for the skin, it turns out well, not too hard, not too soft.Love your recipes!Happy mooncake festival, Ann!
Hi Janice, Glad to hear that :DHappy mooncake festival to you too!
lovely lovely lovely! That's a very clever way of reworking the chin chow jelly! thanks for your contribution to MAKE AND EAT TAU HUAY DAY!
Hi Alan, Thanks for hosting the event. I saw many nice creations of tau huay at FB, love all of them.
This is nice. I would like to try out. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for visiting 🙂
Hi, may I know how am I suppose to make the grass jelly not visible on the surface as shown in your picture? I tried but failed
Hi Iorna,Actually some of my tauy huay mooncakes are still a little visible on the surface. You can wait until the tau huay semi-set before adding the grass jelly but make sure the remaining tau huay is hot or gently reboil it. Otherwise the grass jelly will not sticks together with the tau huay.
soyabean and grass jelly (or michael jackson as some hawkers call it) is my favorite drink to have! love how you made it into jelly mooncakes, which is my favorite type of moon cakes to eat 😀
hahaa… I didn't know they called this combo as michael jackson! Next time I'll remember when I want to order 🙂
Yes, Ann, I like how you can keep calm & make us eat your pretty jelly mooncakes, hahaha! When you think of food, it should be a comforting thing that you share & eat with your loved ones. Some people would be arrogant, some would be ignorant & let's us forgive them & enjoy your cool cool dessert, haha!
Jessie, You're absolutely right! 吃要吃的开心 😀
Ann, I like this combination tou huay and grass jelly filling. The tou huay jelly a bit like panna cotta… I want it !!
Li Shuan, you can try this. If you love soft texture like panna cotta can reduce the agar agar powder a little.
Hi Ann! Looking at your pictures I can only say that you are so so so talented! Wow! Those mooncakes look beautiful and perfect! Great recipe..i wish I am closer to your home so I can enjoy your sweet perfect treats all the time:) Have a lovely weekend sweetie!
Hi Sandra, thank you very much for your nice words. I also wish I can stay near you. Enjoy your weekend too!
Very innovative and refreshing! Great Combo! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Thanks for visiting Valynn. Hope to see you again. 🙂
This is like killing two birds with one stone! You made mooncakes and also participated the event for Make and Eat Tau Huay Day! Super smart Ann. :)) as usual, your jellies never fail to impress, love it! 😉
Bee Bee, Thank you very much for your compliment 🙂
Crikey! So very clever! They look delicious! Refreshing and cooling! Wonder what other flavours/fillings would work?
ermmm… haven't think of it 🙂 How about palm sugar? hehee…
You always have the most creative ways of interpreting classics into new twists!
hi ann, not only it is beautiful but superb matching with cincau! super love your jellies!
hi Ann, this is my first comment in your blog, such a brilliant idea! super nice and super like! thanks for sharing!
Thanks Siew 🙂
What a nice colour combination! I like to order soya bean milk with grass jelly in it. Wow… din thought of using them for mooncake jelly. Thanks for sharing this creative idea!
Thanks Fong 🙂
Nice! Just finished making and eating 🙂 I used brown sugar with the soya milk to make it look like the traditional mooncake 😛 Thanks for the recipe. Amanda
That's a very clever idea! Must tastes good too 🙂
Hi Ann, may I know the size of your jelly mould and filing cups pls?
Hi Zoe, I don’t have the exact size of the filling cup. Just use those plastic cup for containing sauces, size slightly smaller than the mould. The jelly silicon mould was from Phoon Huat. You can use other mould like the pandan jelly mooncakes, size measurement no need to be too exact, just estimate.
Love this healthy mooncakes with tau hauy.
Love the contrasting colour of your photos, and that prompted me to act on the recipe soonest! Thanks for sharing another superb recipe, here's what I did: http://jottingsoflife.blogspot.com/2013/09/soya-milk-cincau-jelly-mooncake.html中秋节快乐 to you and your family!
Very healthy and nice mooncake jelly…..I really got to say you are really creative and good.Thank you for sharing Ann :))I will try it and update u hehe
Ann, 每年你家的月饼都是那么吸引我! 今天这个很特别又健康, 应该也很好吃! 🙂
I try to make this jelly Mooncakes. Its so soft n my family like.Thanks for sharing this recipe.
HI Ann,I got stuck on the grass jelly. If we cut it into strips and throw in the boiling water..the strips does not melt off..so we are just taking the water? or plus with the grass jelly strips as well? im confused here…urs look so nice..
Hi Oh Ying,Just throw in the grass jelly strips and boil together with agar agar powder, then pour into cups.
Hi Ann,thanks for sharing.I just did mine.Love it!http://dequeenkitchen.blogspot.sg/2013/08/soya-milk-with-grass-jelly-mooncake.html
Oh ok. May I know what causes it to be watery?
哈哈。。。。可是我只做一个食谱。。不够。。吃不够爽勒。。我下次做kiwi mooncake…不过不会用kiwi*好贵!*。。用fruits cocktail试一试~~^^
i would like to ask where can we buy the mold like the one on the pics? it's sooooo coooll! 🙂
I bought this mold at Phoon Huat S'pore many years ago.
Wow another beautiful creation!!
Dear Ann,I wonder whether can use the grass jelly directly as filling?Thank you…
Dear Ann, I wonder whether can buy the sweetened grass jelly, cut out & use as filling? 🙂
Dear Ann, you always have creative ideas 🙂
Kah Chin, you mean without using agar agar? I don't think is easy to do it.
Dear Ann, I made it during weekend with shortcut whereby just use the grass jelly directly after cutting… My skill is no good, the filling sinks to bottom so it doens't look nice. However, the combination of soya and grass jelly is just perfect! We all love it, thank you very much for this superb recipe 🙂
Kah Chin, Sorry that I've not read your previous comment. So you used the sweetened grass jelly. I'm sure its taste better if you've have a sweet tooth. I think mix the grass jelly and soya milk together also look pretty.
Ann, I want..So cooling and refreshing. Hmm, thanks for the grass jelly idea. Will try this out.
Angeline, help yourself please 🙂
Brilliant idea! And very creative too. Thanks for sharing!
Anne, you are fantastic! So creative and truly innovative and artistic.AliceSingapore
Thank you Anne for your compliment.
smart idea! i like it very very much.
