Homemade Shanghai Mooncake (Beginner Friendly)


Mid-Autumn Festival is just around the corner!
and it is moon-cake festival!
This year would be a special year to me, 
because it's my first Mid-Autumn Festival with my husband!
so we decided to have a small celebration among the two of us..
my first attempt on mooncake!
i read from internet, 
the easiest mooncake recipe / mooncake recipe for beginner/ zero failure rate mooncake recipe... etc
i was told by the internet
it would be 
Shanghai Mooncake!


Shanghai Mooncake
Ingredient A
120g butter 
40g cream cheese
70g icing sugar
1 pc egg
1/2 tsp vanilla essence (i didn't add in this

Ingredient B
200g plain flour 
40g custard powder
30g milk powder

Thermomix recipe for Shanghai Mooncake
1. Place ingredient (A) in TM bowl and mix 30 sec on Sp4
2. Add in ingredient (B) in TM bowl and mix 30 sec on Sp4
3. Divide skin dough into 35g .
4. Combine with the filling- 50g of Lotus Paste/ Red Bean Paste / Pandan Paste (I bought from the store - Bake with Yen) which wrap with Salted Egg Yolk (soak the salted egg yolk with rice wine for 5min , then bake at 160°c for 10 min) 
Therefore , it is 35g skin , 50g filling (lotus paste + egg yolk + kuazi), extra kuazi can put on top as decoration too !! be creative !
Preheat oven 160°c and bake for 15min. Take out , brush beaten egg yolk, bake for another 10min.

If you do not have Thermomix , it is fine , just mix and whisk well for ingredient A and B , it work the same !! 

i'm someone who love kuazi (wintermelon seeds) a lot , so my version of mooncake was FILLED and FULLED with kuazi!
One thing good about baking is that, 
you can design your own taste at LOWEST COST!
