My very first batch homemade chilled mooncake(non steamed style). And this is the simplest chilled mooncake recipe ever! The most importantly, this mooncake can easily last for a couple of day without getting chewy. This recipe is using 'koh fun' in it. Probably, most of you won't be able to find this ingredient out there but you can always make your own 'koh fun' at home. Not troublesome at all! All you need is juz place the quantity glutinous flour you need into the oven and bake for 25-30 mins at 160'c and stir every 10 mins; or simmer it over a non-stick frying pan under low heat untill it became loose and dry. For me, I'll juz buy the ingredients at the specialty store and saving me lots of time...he he ! Actually, chilled mooncake is tasted more or less like a gigantic mochi. Hm..mm...that makes me feel like I'm going to try out mochi mooncake as well...ha ha!
