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!
