Hi Happy flour,Very beautiful color and looks yummy yummy..
May I check with u if I buy the ready made red bean paste from bakery shop, do I still need to add 40g of sugar when I prepare for the filling?
Many thanks in advance for your advice.
Rdgs,
Karen

Hi Karen,

I used the ready to use red bean paste. You still have to add sugar. The sweetness of my recipe is just right not too sweet, you can adjust to your own taste.
