Enjoy Homemade Traditional Baked Mooncakes During The Mid Autumn Festival
Mid-Autumn Festival is fast approaching and the best way to celebrate the auspicious occasion is to enjoy the day with a good old traditional baked mooncake – one with an egg yolk or egg yolks, of course. The savory salted egg yolk cuts the greasiness and sweetness of the overall mooncake. This combination tastes just heavenly.
Making Your Very Own Homemade Lotus Seeds Paste
These mooncakes are not at all difficult to make, especially with commercially available lotus seed paste. For those who are more ambitious, try making your own lotus seeds paste. It’ll be worth it, as homemade lotus seeds paste can be really delicious and you can also control the sweetness of the mooncakes to your own liking. And, what’s even better, they are only just a fraction of the cost of those sold commercially.
