Moon Cake Marathon - 中秋节快乐!


人月团圆,庆中秋


 I would like to wish all my friends and readers Happy Mid-Autumn Festival! How is every one's moon cake baking going so far? I had been having moon cake baking marathon since last week, as gifts to relatives and friends.
This year, I picked up the courage to try out Shanghai Moon cakes, as well as Flaky Teo Chew Yam Moon cakes. The rave about Cheese Shanghai Moon cakes by 鲸鱼蓝蓝, is definitely a must try!! It's my favourite moon cake now, though I have been a fan for traditional baked moon cakes. The second courage is yam moon cakes, which I find it could be better in terms of taste and the texture. I am thinking, if I still have the energy, I'll try using lard to replace the ghee in the recipe. As shortening is definitely a no no in my cooking and baking! With more practice, I shall make the flaky layers more refine!

I love that flaky teo chew yam mooncake and the white lotus with yolk. It is good to make it ourself as it is getting costly buying nowadays. I wish you and your family Happy Mid Autumn Festival.

Hi Honey Boy
May I know why do you opt out shortening in your baking and cooking? Is shortening bad for health?

Honey boy said...

Thanks for the wishes ladies!

Mel,

Yes, shortening is not good for health, as our body is not able to digest it. Shortening is like plastic, it will never turn bad. So, things like margarine and shortening are not good for us.
