Coconut mooncakes 椰蓉月饼




I have been figuring out what recipe to make using this lovely double happpiness 双喜 mould given by "Penang gang" . Finally i decided to try this coconut mooncake which is also new to me..

This mould is round and flat, perfect for this recipe, so i don't need to fill so much of coconut filling, so the sweetness of this mooncake tasted just nice.

Both pastry and filling adapted from Joceline and Eileen were easy to handle,, definitely a keeper..

This is the first time I see coconut mooncake. Looks wonderful!! I think this is something that I should be able to do it. By the way, can I check with you on the syrup. What syrup is this. Can I just use the golden syrup from the can? I don't think I can get Hong Kong flour from here. Can I replace it with regular flour or cake flour? Thanks Sonia.

This is a very unique mould, with the double happiness word. Aiyoh, I should have read your post before I attempt in making the mooncake , because the mooncake skin I made is very hard even the second day now, and not brown at all though I have baked for 20-25 mins already.

This is the first time I see coconut mooncake. Mooncakes can be done with different types of filling. Looks so beautiful golden brown. "Hoe Laeng" and must be yummy too.

Hi Sonia, very nice mooncake mould you have. Your mooncake looks so lovely and I can imagine it definitely taste good.

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Gert, sorry, i use golden syrup and have amended the recipe..Yes, you can replace with cake flour or superfine flour.

Sem, yes, this mooncake pastry is easy to handle and turned soft the 2nd day,, anyway I was using the golden syrup which i kept for 1 year already..People said the longer keeping the syrup, the faster mooncake turned softed 回油

I think this thickness for mooncake is just right compared to the traditional one which I find it too sweet unless sliced into thin pieces. This is like the wife cake (老婆饼). Nice.

Li Shuan said...

What an unusual filling for mooncake. Bet it must be delicious. I can imagine the aroma of the coconut in the filling. Oh, beautiful mould too. Fantastic job, Sonia!

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Anonymous, i use normal built-in oven (Teka brand), no top and bottom, normal baking mode and no fan assisted, at the middle rack.
