This year i decided to do 4 types of mooncakes from my previous recipes . But at last i giveup Spiral Flaky Mooncake & wanted to try Traditional type. hehe :D It was my 1st attempt. Good result ....rite?

Bought some cute cartoon characters mould! Cute??? There are few characters... but i forgot to snap it ! Only left few for my girl. Others gave to my friends :D hehe

Here is the recipe :-

  • 300g syrup
  • 125g peanut oil
  • 1/2 tbsp alkaline
  • 2 tbsps flour


  • 450g flour


  • 1kg 300g white lotus paste
  • 50g melon seeds ( roasted )
  • 9 salted egg yolks ( steamed )
  1. Mix syrup, peanut oil, alkaline & flour together- combine well. Cover and let it rest for 4-6 hrs or overnight.
  2. Sift flour into a large bowl. Make a well in the center and pour in the syrup mixture. Use a rubber spatula to mix and form to a soft dough.
  3. Measure dough to 50g each & wrap with 150g lotus paste. Press into a floured mooncake mould. Knock & dislodge imprrinted mooncake. Place on tray & bake ina preheated oven at 160c for 10 minutes. Remove & cool. Egg wash mooncake & bake for another 15 minutes till golden.

~~ Mooncaes should not be eaten straight... kept for a few days to allow flavours to develop & the oil to seep out so skins will have a nice sheen~~

Happy Baking & 中秋节快乐
