Traditional Mooncakes Take 2


Bored of mooncakes yet? I’m still at it! This is my 2nd batch which I made yesterday (yes, all my other posts are delayed now!!).

I used the wooden mould this time. The pattern is more distinctive isn’t it?
My only complain and DOH moment was that I think I over baked it by 5 minutes which resulted in some of them looking slightly dry and cracked.

Having said so, I think the size of the mooncakes are definitely more even than the previous post!
And I’m slowly getting the hang of it … I think!
Then I tried to make the large ones… and the poor lion. We can barely see his face.


We cut one up yesterday..and AR said it tasted better than my first batch. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be… So hopefully that means it is an improvement!

  1. Wow, never give up attitude? That’s great. Daph, you have to leave them for 4 days before consuming so that the oil will even out I think and make the skin softer.

  2. Just wanted to say that I think you did a great job on the mooncakes! I miss mooncakes, and unfortunately they’re not too easy to buy in Tokyo! I miss all the Asian grocery shops in Perth where I can go OTT on mooncakes.

  4. Hi Daphne, There are mooncakes in Japan, but we’d have to travel into Chinatown in Yokohama (in an adjacent prefecture to Tokyo) which is a bit too much effort and travelling time just for some mooncakes. Maybe I’ll just have to do what you did, and make ’em myself!! Too bad the ingredients are just as difficult to obtain here..
