Hi Happy Flour,

Can I use my mixer instead of rubbing in method ?

Hi Ling,

Yes, you can use mixer but do not over mix, the dough will become rubbery and hard.

Hi Happy Flour,

Glad that mixer can be used for mooncakes. btw, is it using dough hook or flat beater ?

And also the kao fen- what brand did you use ? can I buy from ntuc ?

Very excited to try this out.

Hi Ling,

Just use a K beater. I bought the Kao Fen from Sun Lik. I don't think NTUC carry Kao Fen.

Hello Happy Flour,

Hi Baking Scientist,

Simply blend few blade of pandan leaves with small amount of water then strain it to get pandan juice.
