A tender and fragrant mochi wrapper and a creamy custard filling make up the snowskin mooncake. This recipe doesn’t call for any unusual ingredients, and if you don’t live near an Asian market, you can order everything online. It’s the ideal way to commemorate the Mid-Autumn Festival.
The snowskin mooncake is a modern mooncake with a soft skin and a thin, chewy texture. It’s also known as ice mooncake or crystal mooncake. Because of the colour and texture of the mooncake wrapper, the word “snow” is used. The snowskin mooncake, unlike the traditional baked sugary pastry, is made with sticky rice flour dough and served chilled.
Snowskin mooncakes, unlike the more common traditional mooncake varieties, are not baked. They are a type of mooncake that originated in Hong Kong and is now very popular in Singapore.
For their great cold skin texture, our snowskin mooncakes are arguably the best in Singapore. Their fruity internal fillings put you even more in the mood to celebrate.
Snowskin mooncakes are popular not only because of their soft outer layer. They’re like soft marshmallow cubes and soft muah chee paste in terms of chewability.
The coldness of the snowskin is also appealing to Singaporeans, as the mooncake is typically kept chilled before consumption. A cold dessert would help to cool people down, especially those who live in this country’s hot weather.
Snowskin mooncakes are preferred by Singaporeans as healthier alternatives to traditional mooncakes due to their chewy and frozen texture. Snowskin mooncakes are thought to be healthier because they contain less fat and are made with less oil.
It’s usually best served chilled, like ice cream. Because both have glutinous rice crusts and must be kept frozen, snowskin mooncakes are often compared to mochi ice cream.
Gao Fen, also known as cooked glutinous rice flour or fried glutinous rice flour, is a processed glutinous rice flour used in the production of mooncakes and Cantonese dim sum. The flour can be mixed and eaten raw because it is cooked. This method is used in most snowskin mooncake recipes because it is simple to follow, requires fewer ingredients, and the end result tastes better.
In a gathering, eating snowskin mooncake over sips of hot tea is a good way to enjoy it. Brighten the atmosphere with well-lit mooncake lanterns, as you would at any traditional mooncake gathering during the Mid-Autumn Festival.
Another great way to enjoy the snowskin mooncakes is to have a frozen feast. This is essentially a frozen feast or a frozen homemade buffet, consisting of ice cream, ice cream cake, ice jelly, and other frozen foods, as well as snow skin mooncakes.
Having a snowskin mooncake treat with your friends and families is certainly a good way to bond together during Mid-Autumn Festival, especially during this difficult pandemic outbreak period. Just like Chinese New Year, it is a great opportunity for you to catch up with your loved ones with treats of tea or even controlled picnic gatherings.
