Feel so good to be back into the kitchen! After delaying for almost 2 weeks, I finally get started on mooncakes making and on 2 types of mooncake too. I will leave the Walnut Mooncake for another post which my family give thumbs up for it! And for now it’s Coffee Snowskin with Tiramsu/Coffee Lotus Paste.
The skin is soft and has a light scent and taste of coffee. The Lotus Paste is something new I bought this year – Tiramisu/Coffee Lotus Paste from Sun Lik. So how did this Tiramisu/Coffee Lotus Paste taste? If you’re a coffee fan then this is the one for you, it’s not too sweet and full of coffee flavoured.
This is a new mooncake mould plate release this year,I thought it look so pretty! Felt the rose design will suit the “modern idea” of Coffee Snowskin with Tiramisu/Coffee Lotus Paste.
Makes 7 x 58g mooncakes
50g kao fen
65g icing sugar
13g shortening (I use Crisco)
40ml cold water
10ml hot water
8g 3 in 1 coffee mix (I use Nescafe 3 in 1 Rich – Green packaging)
1. Dilute coffee mix with hot water and set aside to cool.
2. Sift Kao fen and Icing Sugar together and mix well.
3. Mix in shortening to the kao fen mixture.
4. Mix cold water and coffee together.
5. Slowly add in the liquid mixture to the dry mixture and use a spatula to combine.
6. Wrap the dough in clingwrap or put inside a plastic bag and leave the dough in the fridge to rest for at least 30 mins.
7. Weigh the dough according to the mooncake size you have and wrap the lotus paste filling in.
– For more coffee flavour, you could add 1/8 tsp of coffee emulco.
– Tiramisu/Coffee Lotus Paste is available from Sun Lik.
– Do not knead the snowskin dough.

I’ve seen too many recipes floating around with no source link, knowing that it’s unlikely that they write on their own, it must be an adaptation and later to find out that it’s from a recipe book. It doesn’t take long to quote the recipe source and give the rightful owner their due respect.
