Heong Fah Nemo Moonies ~ 2015 香化公仔饼


The Mid-Autumn mooncake festival is fast approaching again.  And for this year, it falls on  Sunday 27th September.   I used to look forward to this festival when I was a kid and I remember that when you buy the mooncakes from the shop or restaurant, you'll be given two complimentary little Nemo moonies that come in a little red plastic 'basket'.  So why not try out this recipe and I'm sure it will be a hit amongst the kids!

    1. No, I didn't presoak them, just wash them with some soapy water and leave to dry. Looking forward to your posts with these wooden moulds.

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.
