Snowskin Durian Mooncake

1 hr



With a week more to the mooncake festival, here’s our healthier rendition to making a snowskin mooncake, and what else can be more local than to do a DURIAN one!
As we are making the snowskin version, you don’t even need to get involved with baking – it’s really simple, just that you’ll need to ensure that you need to freeze the lotus paste & durian mix for it to be hard enough to work with. A wooden mould is nice to use, but for it’s highly recommended for beginners to use the plastic mould.

It’s really yummy if you intend to use Mao Shan Wang durians, but it’s not a must to have – now you can easily have snowskin durian mooncakes ready for the festival!
