Walnut Mooncake



Recipe is from 'Baking Mom' blog.

I made half of the original recipe and yield 12 mooncakes. I used the balance of the egg as egg wash (I don't want to crack another egg and used the egg yolk as egg wash.) so mine don't look as golden brown as 'Baking Mum' Walnut Mooncake.

Looks beautiful and you added lotus paste in it. I think I am going to make mooncakes next week.

Walnuts in mooncake is good as it helps to balance the sweetness of the paste.

Hi Mary Moh,

Since I learned to make mooncakes, I seldom buy mooncake for the past few years. The price of the mooncakes has been going up....here too.
