Autumn is the season to not only see the leaves changing to brilliant shades of yellow and red, but is also crop harvesting season, and is identified in Japan as the ‘Season for a Healthier Appetite’. Every year my mum lets me know of the brave new varieties unleashed by the chefs at fancy hotels and bakeries in singapore. Recognized for her enjoy of fresh local make, the festival days have become the best time to bake with fall ingredients sourced from neighborhood farmers markets. It symbolizes the coming of autumn in standard Japanese culture, and was after used by the Japanese to decorate roofs and feed animals. It is incredibly easy to make the dough and the ingredients are basic – Hong Kong Pau flour, mooncake syrup, peanut oil and alkaline water.
You can adjust the amount according…I used a dough: filling ratio of 3:7, so for my 50g mooncake mould, dough is 15g filling is 35g. Also available at 14 mooncake fairs island- wide such as Parkway Parade, VivoCity, nex mall and Lot 1.

Biting into this mooncake is like eating Or Nee (well-known Teochew dessert of yam paste) itself. The Chinese Moon Festival is celebrated every 15th evening of the 8th in the Chinese lunar calendar. Ahead of we start off, just to give an introduction- mooncakes are normally perceived to be quite sweet stuff.
Mooncake fairs usually open involving 10am and 10pm each day and finish on Sept 7, except Takashimaya and Chevron House (open on weekdays only) – these end on Sept 8. A number of entertaining competitions, such as sumo wrestling and tugs-of-war, are held in the significant cities of Japan through the Mid-Autumn Festival. I am going to attempt producing mooncakes for the very first time, and would like to use your recipe.
