Colourful Snowskin Mooncakes 彩色冰皮月饼

This is my 1st batch of mooncakes this year, made this for my two sons and my sister who prefer snowskin mooncake. This time, I found a very easy to handle snowskin recipe. At first, I was thinking to make 100% natural colours of mooncake, but the end, I have to replace some with food colouring to bring out the nice colour tone. Nevertheless, I was happy to see the natural nice blue from blue pea flower (bunga telang).

One tip to share, make sure you add the colouring into the water first but not add into dough later as when you work more, the dough tend to turned rough.
Like this example, I use strawberry powder for pink, so first I dissolved this powder with water first before mix with flour.
You can see the orange one is a bit rough, because I use yellow dough to add with red food colouring, work too much, it became rough!

Since I didn't prepare pandan paste, I blend 2pcs pandan leaves only and the green colour is not that strong, so I have to drop some green food colouring

I just use this type of jelly mould to imprint the rose pattern

Snowskin mooncake is very easy to prepare.

What beautiful colors! I had my first moon cake just a couple weeks ago! I can't believe it took me so long. It led me to searching for molds online and I quickly remembered all the wonderful recipes on your blog. I hope to try making my own.

Hi Sonia,

What if I can't get hold of cooked glutinous rice flour? How can I cook the glutinous rice flour myself? Thanks in advance.

Red Velvet said...

Hi Sonia, just 2 check if the cooked glutinous rice is the type that I can do myself by frying the packaging type I bought from d supermarket in a dry wok? If yes, how long normally must I take to fry d glutinous flour? Pls advise as I find your snow skin moon cake look so nice & yummy!!

lena said...

pretty colours! seeing these reminds me of your colourful siew mai!

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Hi Chin & Red Velvet, sorry, I have never prepared cooked glutinous rice flour by myself before. But I saw a Chinese blogger prepare her own Kor Fun (cooked glutinous flour), check here-

If you need me to translate, let me know. I shall try it out if I got time later.

Hi Sonia,

This is my first time leaving comment here, tried your recipe yesterday, it turned out good! (Well, it happened that we have the same jelly mould as well,LOL)

Will try my second batch of snowskin mooncake today, but will add a bit of wheat starch to create some semi-transparent appearance.... hope it will go well :D

Yan said...

I am tied up in the office, and I am too late to read this post. Next year, I must try this. Thanks Sonia.

Anne Regalado said...
