Mooncake Making, Part 4 - The Outcome!

Restaurant: none

dre: The mooncakes were baked 8-10 minutes, glazed with some egg wash, and then back in the oven for another 8-10 minutes. The results were amusing.

There were some that were perfect.

There were some that cracked open. Denny wasn't pleased with the dough recipe and thought that it may have been too dry. Also, some of the mooncakes were really thin as we tried to ration the dough, so that may be why some of the mooncakes split open.

There were some mooncakes that were smushed. Those were my favourite :)

In conclusion, it was a very long process, and I have to admit, I don't even like mooncake that much. Because of all this work, perhaps this is why mooncakes are so expensive, but I'm sure there are machines that do this!

Denny told us that to wait a week before eating the mooncakes to let the oils seep through to the crust and they will be a lot tastier.
