Shanghai Mooncakes 上海月饼 : A Mooncake With Buttery Short Crust Pastry
Shanghai mooncake is characterised by its short crust pastry. The crisp and buttery crust of the skin goes very well indeed with the oriental mooncake lotus paste fillings. They are a modern variation compared to the typical traditional mooncakes.
This special type of mooncake is perhaps a fusion of English and Chinese cuisine combining a western styled crisp biscuit like pastry with a traditional chinese mooncake filling which is soft, sweet yet salty from the egg yolks.
These Mooncakes Are So Unbelievably Easy To Make At Home!
These homemade Shanghai Mooncakes are very easy to make. In fact, it is SO much easier than making the Traditional Mooncakes so this can be another option if you don’t want or don’t have the time to make the traditional ones. Just prepare the dough pastry and fillings. Then assemble them together and bake! And they taste as delicious too!
As always, ENJOY and Happy Mid-Autumn Festival everyone!
