I think you can do this better than me. The surface is so nicely baked.

Do you make your own lotus paste or did you buy ready-made ones? If you make your own do you have a recipe for it? my home-made paste didn't turn out looking shiny and smooth - it was only that way right after cooking, but after it cooled it became drier and fall apart upon cutting the mooncake..

Hi Anncoo,

Thanks, this is the first time I made this baked mooncakes. So far so good. :) Next year, I will make the baked mooncakes earlier as it take a few days for the skin soften and taste better.

Hi May,

I'm too lazy to cook my own lotus paste, too much work already. I bought mine from Sun Lik which has a nice nutty taste.

Hi Jenny and Tq,

I ordered the plunger mooncake mould from e'joe. It easy to use and the print is very clear and unique.

Hi Christine and Florence,

The recipe which I used is similar to 'Baking Mum', you can find it at her blog.

Your mooncakes are so well done! I hope I will be able to pick up the courage to make some baked mooncakes next year. 中秋节快乐!

Happy Flour said...

Hi Happy Homebaker,

Thanks for your nice words. :) I felt that wrapping filling with baked mooncake skin is much easier than snowskin. You can give it atry next year.

Wishing you and your family A Happy Mid-Autumn Festival too. :)
