Snowskin mooncakes in Singapore are arguably more popular than their traditional baked counterparts. They have an irresistibly soft and mochi-like exterior, and consistently surprise diners with their innovative flavours. It’s no wonder they make such cherished gifts during Mid-Autumn! Here are 5 snowskin mooncakes recommendations to get you started.
Start with the Pandan Coconut, which combines freshly grated coconut with silky snowskin for an interesting mix of textures. If you love orh-nee, the Fragrant Taro with Gingko is sure to charm you with its smooth yam interior.
Other flavours include the Fruity Honey Chrysanthemum with Orange Peel, which combines sweet chrysanthemum floral notes with a zesty scent of finely-chopped orange peel. Wrapped in a pastel pink skin, the Roselle with Blueberry is a well-balanced combo that’s pleasantly tangy and not too sweet.
Known for their artisanal Japanese roll cakes and unique flavours, Kele has classified their 9 snowskin mooncake flavours into three categories, Tropical, Booze and Durian.
The overwhelming fan-favourite of the Tropical category ($72 for 8 pieces) is undoubtedly the Avocado Macadamia snowskin mooncake. The fusion of creamy mashed avocados with crunchy macadamia hits just the spot. Other flavours include Pink Guava Ume, Sudachi Caramel , and Mango.
Do also check out the Booze series ($76 for 8 pieces) which features mooncakes swathed in a stellar blend of fruity notes, enlivened with refreshing boozy alcoholic flavours. Or another local favourite, Durian series ($92 for 8 pieces), where each piece is filled with 100% pure luscious Mao Shan Wang Durian, encased in velvety Snowskin and topped with a dash of edible gold glitter.
