Rainbow Soda Durian Snowskin with Durian Lotus Paste


I was flipping through the mooncake recipe book and saw this, pretty captivating with 4 different colors here – pink, green, yellow and white. The interesting part about this recipe is using ice-cream soda as the liquid ingredient. I was expecting a fuzzy taste but it didn’t taste any different from the normal ones thou the skin is extremely soft due to the high proportion of liquid ingredient as compare to the flour proportion. The skin is almost like melt-in-the mouth type but I would very much prefer a slightly chewier skin.

    Hi Elyn, I bought the moulds from you last year and I can’t wait to make my own mooncakes this year. Just a question… is there any substitute flour for ‘kaofen’? Thanks 🙂
