Coffee Egg York Jelly Mooncake

I'm so excited! This is my first attempt on this jelly mooncake..a complete set with jelly egg yolk and filling. I know, a lot of works need to be done but it's OK! As long as I enjoy the whole process I think it worth though...he he! It's not an easy job after all. Everything must be calculated accurately and have to make sure the jelly wasn't too soft nor too hard. I've bought a few jelly mooncake moulds. Really pretty! Wait..I'll show you later.

Ingredient for Jelly Egg Yolk :
1/2 cup water
2-1/2 tbsp sugar
1 tspn agar-agar powder
1/3 cup thick coconut milk
1/2 tbsp custard powder
a little orange colouring

- combine coconut milk, custard powder and colouring together and mix well.
- combine water, sugar and agar-agar powder and bring to boil, stir well.
- add in coconut mixture and cook untill thicken.
- off the heat and pour into the mould.
- leave to cool and then keep in refrigerator for 30mins untill set.
- remove jelly from the mould.

Ingredients for Jelly Filling :

2/3 cup evaporated milk
1/3 cup water
2-1/2 tbsp sugar
1 tspn agar-agar powder

- combine all ingredients and boil over low heat.
- stir continuously untill thicken.
- off the heat and pour into tart moulds and leave cool completely.
- and of coz not to forget to place the jelly egg yolk in the middle.
- then keep refrigerator for 30 mins.
These are the moulds I mentioned about. There are lots of shapes and patterns.
Ingredients for Coffee Jelly Skin :

1-3/4 cup water
3-1/2 tbsp sugar
2-1/2 tspn instant coffee powder(mixed with 3-1/3 tbsp water)
2-1/2 tspn agar-agar powder
1 tspn coffee emulco

- combine water, sugar and agar-agar powder and boil over low heat.
- stir continuously untill slightly thicken.
- off the heat and add in the remain ingredients.
- pour the mixture to the jelly mooncake mould about 1/2 cup.
- place in jelly filling in the middle and cover with coffee jelly mixture.
- leave to cool and keep in refrigerator untill set.
A really satisfying result! The jelly mooncake turned out beautifully.....and I'm dancing with joy...ha ha!
Pretty??? Oooo...and it's really tasty as well. The outer layer skin is a little crunchy and the filling is soft like custard, you can really differentiate it! I guess this is another success trial....hip hip hooray...ha ha!
