Pandan Sesame Mooncake - 2014


Just want to share with you pictures of the moonies that I made during the weekend.  I'm not going to type out the recipe for it's the same recipe using the skin dough for the traditional baked mooncakes.  As for the filling, it's store bought pandan lotus paste and I just mixed in some lightly toasted black sesame  and melon seeds.  You can click  'here' for the recipe and method of assembling this mooncake.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.
