Durian Snowskin Mooncake (Olive oil)

This year I am seeking for a healthier version of snowskin mooncakes for my family.  

As I prefer the texture to be like Goodwood Hotel's, I will experiment making Durian Snowskin Mooncake to see whether I can achieve that.

I attended a class many years ago and the chef told me that in order for my bakes to last longer, I need to cook down the durian puree.

Thus for this recipe, the fillings looks not yellowish is because I used cooked durian puree.  




Giveaway

There are many occasions that I bought the same book without realizing until I reached home.




Since I have an extra copy of this book and thus I would love to give this away (only applicable to Singapore).

If you are interested, just leave me a comment and your email address.  Entry should be submitted not later than 31 August 2016.  Still enough time for you to try out the recipe from the book.

If I have more than one request, then I will go by balloting.

  7. I did tried making fresh durian snow skin moon cakes. Which was a very difficult task and i have to puree the paste and form round balls and freeze it in the freezer until firm. Action must be fast so that the durian paste will not be melted. Need to freeze the end products. I think your method is much better then mine and it look nice and presentable as a gift. Thanks for your generously to give away your extra copy would look forward to receive it thanks.

  11. Hi hi, your snow skin mooncake recipe without using shortening came just right in time. Last year, I bought a tub of shortening just to make snow skin mooncake. End up throw away the shortening after using only 30g of it. A total waste of it. Will definitely attempt to make snow skin mooncake again using your recipe. Thanks��
