September reminds me of mooncakes

September reminds me of many wonderful things, besides Green Day’s certain contagious song, Mid-Autumn festival is one of them. Making and sharing mooncakes are part of this festival’s traditions. The pictures below were taken last year when I attended the mooncakes making class at KS Tan Baking & Cooking Training Centre, Miri.

Above: Chef Tan taught his students on how to make several types of mooncakes. Maybe we should just stick to pen and paper during class, those modern devices should be banned because they’re blocking my view! Haha, I’m kidding.

Below: salted egg yolks

Once the mooncakes have been shaped by their moulds, they are ready to be baked inside the oven.

Back at home, I tried two of the several recipes that I learned from the class. The ones I made weren’t that pretty but were delicious, nevertheless. The filling consisted of pandan lotus paste, pure lotus paste and salted egg yolks:

This year I haven’t made any mooncake yet, but I will definitely post it up once I have done it.

Happy September, everyone!
