Baking Mooncakes

Mooncake Festival is almost here! We embarked on our first attempt at baking traditional Cantonese-style mooncakes.

I had intended to make fresh lotus paste but laziness got over we used ready-made Lotus paste bought from Gim Hin Lee.

I have to say that the lotus paste quite good, although a tad too sweet for my liking.

I also learned that wooden mooncake moulds have to be soaked a few hours or overnight before using. It is also important NOT to expose it to sunlight.

Will be posting up the recipe soon!
