Pandan Jelly Mooncake

Next week is already Mid Autumn Festival.  I been seeing lots and lots of mooncakes posting on the blog, various flavours coming up this year too.  I guess the latest trend is the chocolate flavour. 

Well, on the festival day itself too much mooncakes can get you satiated and why not make something else....... Jelly or agar agar mooncake.  

I really love this Jelly Mooncakes when Esther of CopyCake Kitchen posted hers!  And even the jelly mooncake have filling too; using grass jelly (cincau). 



PANDAN JELLY MOONCAKE 
Recipe sourced from Esther of Copycake Kitchen

Ingredients
300g water
400g pandan juice  (blend 4-5 pieces of pandan leaves in 400g+ water)
100g coconut milk
Few drops of pandan essence (I didn't add this)
3 pandan leave (tie into a knot)
120g sugar
8g Agar agar

Filling
Honey grass jelly, ready made (cut into small square size; smaller than your mooncake mould)

Method
In a medium pot, pour in the water, pandan juice, essence, coconut milk and pandan leaves and bring to simmer boil.
Add in sugar, stirring until all the sugar is dissolved. Add in agar agar keep stirring.  Once start to bubbles, turn off heat. Sift the agar agar mixture.
Pour some agar agar mixture into jelly mould. Put it in your freezer to set for 1-2 mins. Add in grass jelly, pour again agar agar mixture until full.
Let it chill and set in the fridge.

  4. My favorite color and flavor, so sad my pandan bush is not non existent so I can't make any pandan flavored mooncakes…somehow I don't think it's worth buying the leaves when I used to get them for free lol!

  8. Those are just beautiful, Mel. It is that time of year again when I see a lot of moon cakes and they are just too expensive. This is a very nice, less costly alternative.

  13. Never heard of Pandan. It sound like it is a bush from what someone said. Where does it grow? Where can one find the leaves? What does it taste like, don't say Pandan. I need some kind of comparison. Is it tropical? I lived in Guam for a while and never heard of it.

    1. Hi Betty
      Sorry for the late reply. Pandan leaves is a herb and is also known as "Screwpine leaves. You can check out the facts about this leaves here ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandanus_amaryllifolius

      You can try to find the frozen pandan leaves (screwpine leaves) at the asian groceries shop is you can't get the fresh ones at your location.
      Hope my explanation helps.
