香兰莲蓉冰皮月饼

Pandan Flavoured Lotus Paste Mini Snowskin Mooncake (香兰莲蓉迷你冰皮月饼)

第一次做的冰皮月饼

中秋节要到了!博客里的人都忙着做传统月饼,燕菜月饼,客家月饼,当然少不了冰皮月饼啦!我个人比较喜欢冰皮月饼因为觉得吃它口感像在吃冰淇淋,入口即化。。第一次做这个,很多人说比起做传统月饼,冰皮月饼一点也不难;很容易做!可能我比较倒霉,我觉得一点也不容易;而且一直碰钉子!因为没有做过,在擀冰皮面团时不晓得应该要达到什么样的软硬度,心里很不舒服!我就拼命的搓,越搓,冰皮面团就变得越油腻;而且很lumpy,一坨一坨的没有粘性,面团也一点不smooth! 后来上网做research,才知道面团原来不可以大力搓;会起筋!而且油太多也不行!做第二次才终于成功!冰皮做好后就包上自己做的绿豆蓉;接着就压膜。。这个步骤也很考功夫!压力有均匀,团才会明显,漂亮。。脱模时也不简单。。总之整个过程是让我步步惊心的!我参考的食谱来自My Wok Life的blog.

Pandan Flavoured Lotus Paste Mini Snowskin Mooncake  香兰莲蓉冰皮月饼*

*注意:第一次做不敢太冒险,所以决定做一半就好。。我把全部的材料处于2;但发觉40g shortening for 75g FRIED glutinous rice flour 似乎太油腻了;建议大家减少。。

Yields 20 mini cakes
Ingrediens

For snow skin dough:

  • 150 grams of FRIED glutinous rice flour – 糕粉/ 熟糕粉/ 加工糕粉/ 熟糯米粉 (*Prepare extra 50g for coating and flouring purposes later, so total of 200 gram)
  • 100 grams of icing sugar, sifted 100 grams of snow powder
  • 80 grams of shortening fat (I used Crisco brand)
  • 150ml of water 3 pandan leaves, tie into a knot 1 teaspoon of pandan paste

For filling:

1 kg of lotus paste, pandan flavour (*Get ready paste from the supermarket/ baking supplies shop) 100 grams of melon seeds, toasted at 160°C for 10 minutes

Method

1) Boil water with pandan leaves for 10 minutes. Heat off and leave to cool. Add in pandan paste and stir till disolved. Leave in refrigerator to chill before use.

2) Add toasted melon seeds with lotus paste and form into each small ball (about 60 – 70 gram each lotus paste ball).

3) Place fried glutinous rice flour, icing sugar, snow powder and shortening far into a large mixing bowl. Mix well with spatula, or electrical mixer at low speed, till mixture turns into crumb-like texture.

4) Add cold pandan water into crumb-like flour mixture. Mix well with spatula, or mixer at low speed (about 1 – 2 min), to form soft dough. Remove soft dough from mixing bowl and place it on a floured (with fried glutinous rice flour) table top and knead for few seconds to form into a dough ball. Rest dough for 10 minutes.

5) Cut dough ball into halves and roll it out. Cut the rolls into required size (about 10g each) and flatten each small dough into thin layer.

6) Fill in lotus paste, seal and shape the cake into ball. Lightly pat just a little fried glutinous rice flour all over the cake ball. Also flour the mooncake mould before placing cake ball into the mould and press firmly.

7) Over turn the mould to knock the cake out from mould. Repeat steps till all ingredients used. Ready to serve chilled.
