Green Tea & Custard Snow Skin Mooncakes01

The Mid-Autumn festival is just around the corner. What makes the festival unique for me this year is that I can celebrate it with my own brand mooncakes.

The customized mooncake mould, engraved with my Chinese blog title, 簡易食譜 (means "easy recipes" in Chinese) was a hearty birthday gift from my loved ones in the family. I treasure it so much. With it, I made these green tea (matcha) snow skin mooncakes with custard filling.

Tofu is one of my favourite ingredients in Chinese cooking. Although it’s cheap and common, it could be served in an elegant way to impress my family and friends, just by adding a bit of prawn/shrimp meat paste.

Purple Sweet Potato Snowskin Mooncakes01

After the first attempt of making mooncakes used my own branded mould, I was itching to make another batch with a different filling.

A purple sweet potato (purple yam) has been sitting in the basket on my kitchen benchtop for quite a while. Guess that it’s perfect for my second attempt. The purple sweet potato grown in Australia is quite dry itself, with less water content compared with other kinds of sweet potatoes.

Steamed Soft Boiled Eggs

Soft-boiled eggs with yolks a bit runny are very charming for many foodies like me. I know, I know, some people like hard-boiled eggs instead.
Ever tried steaming eggs? Here's a trick that helps you can make your most favourite soft boiled eggs every time.

Sometimes I like to have a soft-boiled eggs for breakfast or go with a bowl of hot noodle soup. The eggs take the whole bowl of noodle soup up a level, appealing to eyes and taste buds.

I used to cook eggs in boiling water. This method is good but quite tricky. The egg shells will easily crack in the boiling water. If using this steaming method, you’ll have peace in mind. The eggs won’t easily bump together and get cracked. It's very easy to peel the egg shells as well.

Yet, I tested with chilled eggs. Chilled eggs straight from fridge will crack easily.

So bear in mind, use eggs at room temperature. The next thing is that accurate cooking time determines your success in getting your favourite soft-boiled eggs. That’s it. You’re good to go. So those people who like hard-boiled eggs can use this simple steaming method too.
