Do you need to steam the tang mien flour?

yochana said...

Hi,

it's only 10 gm, you can steam if you want to... For me, I didn't steam it.

Hi! I was wondering where you buy lotus paste & what kind of melon seeds you're supposed to use.

what is kao fen? I have tang mien flour here, but i have no idea about kao fen at all
yours-yoo lee

yochana said...

Hi yoo_lee,

kao fen is fried glutinous rice flour. It's not tang mien flour. You can purchase it from Sun Lik or Kwong Cheong Thye.

Hi Aunty Yo
I tried the orange poppy seed skin - but found the skin to be a tad on the "damp" side and not like those flour dusted type found on the market. Is it cos I did not flour my hands or I overhandled the dough?

Then if I want to add pandan juice to this rainbow recipe (such that the total amt of liquid is still 200 ml) can or not? If so, how many leaves n water am I supposed to use to blend the juice? For snowskin, liquid must be boiled is it?

yochana said...

Hi Mrs. Tan,


Next time add in a little more fried glutinous flour to avoid dampness. Just lightly flour your mould n hand will do.

Yes you can use pandan juice if you want.

Hi Aunty,

Will it be ok if i use 60g for skin and 100g for the fillings to make each of this mooncake?

yochana said...

Hi Aunty,

I'm really impressed with the numerous creations!

I tried this recipe but the skin turn hard after 1 refrigerate for 2 days... What could go wrong?

yochana said...

Hi anonymous.

That's weird, mine is still soft in the fridge.

Hi Aunty,

Your creations look so lovely that it inspired me to try making mooncakes for the first time.

However my snowskin turn out to tast very "flour-y" and raw (did not add any flavouring), and the texture is very mushy too.

May I know how to overcome these 2 problems? Thanks!

Cheers,
O

yochana said...

Hi O,

What fried glutinous rice flour did you use? Did you fry it yourself? You have to buy it from the shops. They called it "Kao fen", specially made for this pingpi mooncakes. Do not use the normal glutinous rice flour that is used for making nonya kueh.

Hi Aunty,

Could it be because I had the fan blowing on the mooncakes or I floured it too much?

Lyn

yochana said...

Oh Lyn,

No need to use fan to blow it and try to use cooked / steamed flour to dust your snow skin.

Hi!

Will make sure the fan's not blowing when I try next time! =)

Hi,
If omit the tang mien flour or need to substitute with 10g kao fun or tapioca flour?

Secondly, do we need to toast the melon seeds before use? thks

lyn

yochana said...

Hi Lyn,

Just totally omit the tang mien flour.

yes you need to roast the melon seeds.

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi,

Both ways of adding colouring into the snow skin is acceptable but it will be much easier to add into the water then pour into the fried glutinous rice flour.

This mooncake is beautiful..=)

do you think i could omit 50ml(by the way, 200gm = 200ml?) of the ice cream sode and add in bailey's for added flavour instead?

by the way, any idea how to make an ice cream snowskin mooncake? was wondering how to shape it. sorry for so many questions! you really are very talented at doing all this..=)

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi anonymous,

yes you can sub with bailey's coffee.

Kathryn said...

Hi, if i can't get any Kao Fen, can i use glutinous rice flour and fry it in the wok? by the way do you mind if i add your blog link in my blog at www.delikatzy.blogspot.com ?

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Kathryn

I've asked my friend who lives in Canada to try frying your own glutinous rice flour till it's cooked but whether it works or not , I'm not too sure. Why don't you try it out. I'm too lazy to fry. I buy it over the shelf. Yes of course you can link your blog to mine...

rgds

Kathryn said...

Thanks alot for your advice. I will link our blog to mine. I'm gonna try to the kou Fen... if really cant get then i will fry it. Hope i won't make a big mess.

Valene said...

Aunty,

I was wondering if I use the digital weighing scale to measure the skin and the filling, what are the proportions (in grams) of the skin to the filling for the small mould and the big mould, respectively?

Thank you so much for your help.

Coco said...

Hi,

i followed your recipe but the dough became too watery... i couldn't form any shape at all. do you know what went wrong?

Hi,

I went to Phoon Huat and got only kou fen which was labeled as glutinous rice flour. However it is from Thailand instead.

The salesperson said it can be used for snowskin mooncakes. Please advise. Should I only get kou fen from HK for the best effect?

regds,
christine

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi christine

please use "Fried glutinous rice flour". Try buying from sun lik or kwong cheong thye if Phoon Huat cannot help u.

delia said...

This is the softest snow skin i've ever made. Thanks for the wonderful recipe. Will be using this recipe from now on.

Many thanks for the recipe. I tried it out and it's much better than the premix. Now I need to work on my shaping. :)

Hi! Aunty,

May I know Hong Kong "Cooked" Flour is it the same as Kao Fen?

Thank you!

Rgds,
Verlin :)

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi verlin

hong kong cooked flour is hong kong either steamed or baked while Kao fen is Fried glutinous rice flour. Both are entirely different.

Aquaria said...

Hi Aunty Yochana,

Had fun using your awesome recipe during a mooncake making session with friends yesterday. After refrigerating them over night, I noticed there are condensation in the air tight containers I use. Is there any way I can prevent condensation from forming? It happens no matter which snowskin recipe I uses. Is it advisable if I leave them at room temp over night? Or perhaps my fridge is too humid?

Thank you!

Hi, i tried your recipe. This is my first making mooncake. The dough that i got is oily & soft to handle as it keep breaking so i added some flour. Then the dough was a little drier but keep breaking too. Can i know what's the problems?

Stefani Budiman said...

hi Aunty, i tried using this recipe to make the rainbow mooncakes but the 200 gram of ice cream soda when i pour in it became watery it didnt become a dough. is the ice cream soda i used wrong? i use the F&N ice cream soda.

Stefani Budiman said...

hi Aunty yonchana,

I used this recipe to create the mooncake however when i pour the 200 gm of F&N ice cream soda it become so watery its basically milk water. how did u create into a dough. is it something wrong w the ice cream soda i bought?

Anonymous said...

Hi Yochana,

I have tried your recipe twice but could not get the correct texture.

200ml soda is too much as I will get a liquid batter instead of soft dough.

Which I have to add more fried glutinous flour to get a dough but the dough is too soft & will crack easily when handling.

Both end result of the mooncake will taste powdery.

Can I know what went wrong as I follow all your ingredients & measurement in the recipe.

Thanks
