Mooncake

After last year’s attempt at making snowskin (ping pei) mooncake, I decided that for this year I wanted to try making baked mooncake instead. After all I did lug back the heavy mooncake mold from Malaysia, so I better make full use of it. But as the mooncake festival draws closer, the lazy bug in me kicked in & I really was not in the mood to make it. But this weekend, 2 days to mooncake festival with my 2nd batch of salted egg just screaming to be used, I finally got off my lazy behind & made mooncakes.

Many many hours later………….. Mooncakes, anyone???

Look at how my salted egg yolk turned out! They look so nice & orange.
Just what I needed for mooncakes.

Mooncake 3
Before baking

After it has been cut. Lotus paste mooncake with 1 egg yolk. In case you are wondering about the black spots, those are sunflower seeds. I couldn’t find “kuaci” so thought that sunflower seeds were a good substitute. Unfortunately, I don’t really like it. I guess I should have just used all lotus paste. But overall, I still need to do some minor tweaking but still pretty happy the way they turned out.

    Wow, great mooncakes. I have never tried making mooncakes. Too scared to try due to hard work and what if it fails? 🙁

    Judy, it’s actually not too hard. Just time consuming ‘cos have to make the filling. Aiya, with your cooking skill, u sure won’t fail. U should try it one day. 🙂

    Thanks, cat cat! It’s actually not too hard to make but very time consuming ‘cos have to make everything from scratch. 🙂 I think I ate too much already! 😛

    Hi, B Mommy! Hey, I haven’t visited your blogsite for a while. Was in M’sia for 3 weeks and had a great time eating all my fav food and catching up with family and friends.

    Your mooncakes look really delicious and professional. I brought back 4 mooncakes (bro & sis-in-law gave them to me) in 3 varieties and now only 2 are left. 😉

    Hi Argus, thanks for dropping by! Wah, 3 weeks hols in Msia?? *green with envy*!!!! U’re so lucky to have mooncake from Msia. I heard there were a lot of new varieties nowadays. Would have love to try the durian ones. 😛 Hope to see u here more often. 🙂

    Nice mooncakes.. For the lotus paste, you get those ready made one or you do it by urself ? Just curious… Hehe..

    Lastly, happy mooncake festival for you n family !

    Thanks, keeyit! I made the lotus paste myself. Here, we cannot buy ready made ones 🙁 Everything have to self-made. That’s why take so long to make mooncake! Happy mooncake festival to you & your family too. 🙂
