Snow cake 雪花糕

Some time back, I saw a FB group member posted this Snow Cake 雪花糕.  I was intrigued by the name as it sounded so light and melt in the mouth.  I bookmarked it.

Been having this problem that I bookmarked so many recipes to attempt but yet to find the motivation or the time.  These days, I guess I am getting lazier by the day.

Guess it will be better when this PSLE exam is over and then I can focus more on cooking and baking for the family.

Findings: It didn't indicate how long to cook and mine didn't thicken as what recipe indicated.  Was afraid that the cream will split if I cook any much further.  Thus mine didn't thicken.  The smell of gelatine was pretty strong so I added in some vanilla.

I tasted mine without coconut and it was really yummy.  More like a jello rather than cake.

Shall let my family taste this tonight.

    1. Thanks Anne for trying out the chocolate snow skin. You have reminded me to revisit this recipe again for this year. I think I might be able to squeeze in some time for it. :)

  3. Hi Edith, this name 雪花糕 immediately pops up my childhood images ... my mom and some of my big sisters used that cold white soft cream to apply on their faces is called雪花膏. This edible雪花糕 looks yummy !
