Japanese Crystal Jelly Mooncake

Mid Autumn festival is around the corner. It is making mooncake time again. Due to my busy schedule this year, I am making these fast, easy and yet healthy mooncake this year. They are naturally colourful jelly mooncakes. The main difference of this year's mooncake is I am making them to a rather smaller and mini bite size mooncake.

I love Jelly Mooncake. Firstly they are less sweet and not oily at all. This signature crystal jelly mooncake is totally healthy for old folks or kids, as it contains of full range of protein and vitamin. If you still prefer the conventional jelly mooncake, you can basically add on another layer of lotus paste or red bean paste in between. The wonders of this jelly cake is that you may add on any of your favourite fruits in it, sweet or sour fruits mix exceptionally well in the jelly.

The ingredients to make this jelly is extremely simple, 4 key ingredients to make this exceptionally stunning look crystal Jelly Mooncake to impress your guests in this coming mooncake festival. I named them crystal mooncake as their transparent skin is shinning and show up the natural colourful fruits filling in it.

Wish all my readers and followers Happy Mid-Autumn Festival 2015 in advance first.

                    Hi Cecilia

                    You may find the Japanese Jelly powder in any Japanese store or ASEAN store in Japan. They called as Konyaku Jelly powder, else you may also substitute with the normal jelly as well. It works perfectly too.

                    Hi, if put inside the fridge, it can last for 3-5 days.

                    Hi, Konyaku Jelly powder is made form a root vegetable called Konjac. Their texture is less firmer than the store bought jelly powder, while Konyaku is chewier and wobblier. Hope this helps.
