Swirl Coffee Mooncake Biscuit @ 'Gong Zi Bing' 公仔饼
So, here's what I did.
Ingredients for Biscuit dough : (for 25-26 biscuit)
250ml golden syrup
110ml cooking oil/corn oil
1 tspn alkaline or lye water
(combine all ingredient & mix well then leave to rest for an hour)
430gm all purpose flour
1/4 tspn baking soda
Coffee mixture : 2 tspn instant coffee powder mix with 1 tspn warm water & 1 tspn coffee emulco
Fillings : 650gm lotus paste
(1) once ingredients (A) is ready to use, stir in ingredients (B) and mix to form a soft & sticky dough.
(2) withdraw 1/3 of dough to mix with coffee mixture till well combine. Add 2-3 TB flour if dough is too sticky to handle.
(3) then let dough set aside to rest for another an hour.
Before start shaping the dough, please check the dough usage size of your mould by gathered one 50gm size pastry dough then stuck it to the mould and try to press fit into the mould.
If extra dough appear to the end of the mould then withraw some off. Weight the dough later after its done. If its too small then add another 10gm dough, again press it to fit.
By the total figure dough you collected, for example if its 60gm then pastry dough use should be 30gm and fillings should be 30gm. Ratio 1 : 1.
For swirl dough, 20gm plain dough plus 10gm coffee dough.
Note : for new wooden mould, wash with clean water then rub dry with a tower. Pour about 2-3 tspn of cooking oil to brush over the mould. Let it stand overnight for drying up.
Wrap lotus paste with dough then nicely sealed. Slightly coat filled dough with flour then press to fit into the mould. Knock wooden mould from all corner to release shaped dough biscuit and place it to greased baking tray.
Bake at 165'C for 10 minutes then remove and brush with egg glazing. Again bake for another 10 minutes or till golden brown. Cooled for 10 minutes before transferring biscuits from tray.
Wishing all my readers a very Happy Mid-Autumn Festival ! Enjoy & have lots of fun.
