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.

Ingredients

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.

Mixing:

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:
