Salted Egg Nutty Mooncake ~ 咸蛋五仁什錦月餅 ~ 2017


Salted egg yolks have been added into traditional lotus paste mooncakes, for both baked and snowskin mooncakes.   So I believe that the salted egg yolks can be added to nutty mooncakes as well.  They do enhance the flavour of these nutty mooncakes and if you're a fan of salted egg yolks, you'll love these.
