Description

Chinese mooncakes are traditionally made to celebrate the mid-Autumn festival, Zhongqiujie. A mooncake consists of a round pastry with a rich red bean filling. Before baking the cakes are pressed into a wooden mooncake mould which creates a decorative pattern on the top and sides of the cake. The mooncake moulds are hand carved - and many still have the pencil marks showing how they have been cut.

Instructions for moulding mooncakes: Separate the pastry into 15g pieces and roll them into round balls. Also separate the bean curd filling into 35g pieces and roll into round balls. Flatten the pastry into a round, flat disc and wrap it around the red bean filling. Roll the mooncakes in a little flour before pressing them into the mooncake mould. Tap the mould firmly on its side to release the mooncake. Bake until the pastry takes on a rich, golden colour.
