So this past weekend, i made some moon cake with couple friends.
For those that don’t know, mooncake is something we eat during autumn festival. I don’t know how to explain autumn festival. You can wiki that.
Anyways, I will recap what we did. This is a tutorial how to make moon cakes. Because frankly i still don’t know how to make it. just want to recap the experience.
We went to a baking store and picked up all sorts of weird ingredients. I’ll list them out here:
we also had eggs, flour, water and several other ingredients i forgot to take pictures of. told you it’s not a tutorial.
Once we got all the ingredients, we started mixing things. First we mixed syrup with flour:
Then we started mixing the two so it becomes a solid:
Once mixed, we made it into a smooth ball.
Then we made mini balls out of the fillings that we bought:
Then we covered the fillings with the syrup / flour skin.
Then we moulded it. Then we baked it.
This is the result:
haha sorry i know i rushed the end. It was a late night on friday and i was really tired so i wasn’t paying much attention. But anyways, it was a fun experience. I brought my moon cakes to Taiwan! Will be eating them in a few days…will let you guys know how it is…hahah. yep.
