My first moon cake! A Healthy one!

Is there such thing as healthy moon cake? I wonder! Today I attempted a sweet potato snowskin moon cake. Despite the sabotage, the taste was not bad! Basically mashed the steamed sweet potatoes then add some syrup and coconut oil in it. Mix it until it reaches a paste like consistency. Then wrap it with the colored snow skin. This time I made a yellow colour snow skin with turmeric powder. Next time I would try coloured juices like dragon fruit, orange, nyonya blue flower etc.

So lets make this easy Healthy moon cake!

Fruity coloured Snow skin:
130g koh fun
130g powdered sugar
130ml coloured juices (orange or dragon fruit, or blue flower)
100g butter

Rub the butter in the flour n sugar first then mix in the juices slowly. And roll them into 60g balls and leave it to chill while you prepare the filling.

Sweet potato filling
1kg steamed mashed sweet potatoes (purple or orange potato, purple potato gives better results)
70ml cold pressed coconut oil
30g roasted melon seeds
5 Tbs of agave nectar (or honey)
Pinch of salt

Dust the surface w some koh fun, Roll the snow skin out, then wrap the filling in. Dust the surface of the mooncake ball w some koh fun then Press it into the mould.

Chill the moon cake in the fridge for a few hours and eat while it is fresh!
