Baked Red Bean Lotus Paste Mooncake ~ 2018 ~ 红豆蓮蓉月饼


I combined the red bean paste and lotus paste to make what I refer to as a 'two-toned' mooncake.  Other than the traditional sweet red bean paste and lotus paste mooncakes, these days you can find a great combination of different flavoured mooncakes.
