Wah Aunty Yo, look at the beautiful filling! Are those gigantic red beans you used, or you made these mooncakes into mini versions? If these are full-sized mooncakes, how can red beans be so big one?! Aiyoh, they must be really yummy!

Can share this recipe?

Heheh, I still remember the chendol agar-agar mooncake you made last year, and how my friends and family enjoyed the jelly mooncakes using that recipe! :)

Yukari said...

:O OMGGGGGGGGGGGGG I want to try that.

I get to eat mooncake every time the moon festival rolls around, but it is always the standard one with lotus paste. I've never tried ones made with other flavors. *_*

Hi Aunty,

Do you mind to post the Chendol Agar agar mooncake recipe again, because I encountered problem getting into that page? Sorry to trouble you!

yochana said...

HI anonymous

are you referring to this agar agar mooncake or the baked mooncakes?

For agar agar you have to prepare your egg yolks first then make the filling and then let it set. The final part is putting them together into the mould. First you pour some agar agar into the mooncake mould and let set slightly, put in your filling and pour the balance agar agar and fill it to the brim.

My jelly (esp. those made using gelatin) sometimes sticks to the molds. How did you get yours out so nice, esp. with those patterns still intact? You are so creative!

Hi Aunty

How many mooncake does this recipe yeild?

I need to buy some moulds.

Regards...May

Emily said...

Dear Yochana,

Would it be possible for you to post a picture of the small mould that you use for the filling?

I really do not know what to use. Can I just do the filling in a big square pan & then cut to size when it is set?

Thanks.

Emily said...

Aunty Yochana,

One more question. What fresh cream are you using? Can I use whipping cream?

Thanks.

yochana said...

Hi Emily,

As whipping cream will do. I used those that has a 35% fat content called Elle Vire.

yochana said...

Hi Emily,

I've already posted the chwee kueh mould for making the filling under the mooncake category.

yochana said...

Hi su,

1 tsp. = 5 gm. of agar agar powder.


thin coconut milk use 50 gm. pkt of santan powder and add in about 400 ml. of water.

rgds

yochana said...

Alice,

don't use gelatine powder. It definitely sticks. You must use the Rose Brand agar agar powder.

yochana said...

Hi Racheline,

Are you talking about jelly? I used a skewer to loosen the side and it will drop down onto the table.

yochana said...

Hi Rachaeline,

OMG...typo error. Suar...meant to type "sugar".

Aunty,

I meant agar2 and cakes, i usually make agar2 and cakes (chiffon cakes and other cakes), i have problems getting them out of the mould. I see that yours came out perfectly, nice shape. I tried to put the agar2 mould in the warm water, but still hard to take it out and the shape are not perfect. How to do it??

Thank You and GBU

Hi Aunty,

Where can i get the small rounded ice cube moulds?

yochana said...

Hi ,

go to the shelves that sells ice-cube trays. It should be 2 pieces into 1.

Mindy said...

Hi Aunty Yochana,

If i'm health conscious and I do not wish to add coconut milk, can I just use water? I do not like milk. Must I add more agar agar powder to make it thicker? Thanks.

Mindy

yochana said...

Hi Mindy,

Water does not give you a nice colour. You can opt for soya bean milk instead.

Hi Aunty,

Can i use red bean paste instead for the fillings?

Mei

yochana said...

Hi Mei,

The colour will not be nice and your fillings will become oily.

blua said...

Hi Aunty Yo

Thks so much!

yochana said...

You can buy instant jelly from Sun Lik or Phoon Huat. They help to set your agar agar faster.

Been looking around. Sick of the traditional & snow skin mooncakes. This year will try something new to make jelly mooncakes.

So basically we need 3 molds(egg yolk, filling & skin? egg yolk ingredients pretty standard. if i want say mango, durian flavoured mooncake? what should the filling be like?

Kristie said...

Hi Aunty Yochana, I tried this recipe last night, but after unmoulding, the skin was too soft, it broke :(

I think there wasn't enough agar agar powder.

8g is 2tsp right? Or should I use more?

Thanks.
