Aunty Yo, this month is making me delirious because I love mooncakes A LOT.

As I scrolled through your blog, I was going "wah... Wah... WAH!" (jaw dropped) at each of your tempting displays of beautiful mooncakes.

I must say you are simply fantastic with all these mooncake making :) Keep it up!

delia said...

Aunty,
Can we omit the barbequed meat? How to make the rose flavoured sugar? Is it just add rose bud to the sugar? Thanks!

bluecrystal said...

Hi Aunty Yo, thanks for being so generous to share this recipe. Just a question. Where to get rose-flavoured sugar??

Got substitute for this ingredient or not? For eg, just rose syrup? Or rose essence + sugar can or not ah? Would the taste be very different if I use such substitutes?

yochana said...

bluecrystal,

In Singapore, probably Kwong Cheong Thye has it or even Sun Lik. I bought mine from Johor. Just omit it if you don't have. It makes no difference n no need to subsititue.

yochana said...

Hi delia,

yes you can omit the barbecue meat but you have to add in an additional Tbsp. of oil into the filling.

Avery said...

Aunty Yochana,

What is olive seed? Do you know the name in Mandarin or Cantonese? Where can we get it?

Thanks.

yochana said...

Hi Avery,

Olive seeds is very expensive this year. Price has gone up. It's called "Lum Yan" in cantonese. Sun Lik sells this.

Dear Aunty Yochana

Thank you for sharing this recipe. Can I ask do I need to wash all the nuts and remove the skin? any tips to remove the skin easily? and lastly, do I need to chop the nuts to smaller pieces?

Thanks
Cat

yochana said...

Hi cat,

No need to remove the skin nor wash it.

Hi Yochana

Thanks for this recipe. I always wanted to make mixed nuts mooncake for my bf's family coz his parents likes it. I finally got my hands on this yesterday. Tedious it may be (from all the chopping and dicing), I must say I am satisfied how it turned out (even though my wrapping skills still sux la - can see the filling from outside. haha!). I hope my bf's parents will like these moonies I made for them as much as I love them. =)

Thanks alot Aunty for sharing this. I now know I can make my own Mixed Nuts Mooncake too!. By the way, any tips on easing the chopping and dicing part? Heez. Very tiring leh. My arms are now aching from all the chopping and dicing. Ha ha! And what's actually the purpose of spraying water on the mooncake skin before putting them in the oven? I realised I forgot to do that. Heez.

yochana said...

Hi Shiyan,

You can actually use your chopper machine and pulse just at random a couple of times and wa lah....all nicely chopped tho you get an uneven size.

Spraying water onto mooncakes helps to take off the flour that sticks onto the mooncakes when you dusted it with flour during moulding. Doesn't matter if you forget, just glaze with eggs and it will hide the white powdery look.

Aunty,
I made this mooncake on saturday. It's delicious. Before this I've never tried eating this type of mooncake before. I omit the rose flavoured sugar and the wine cos I don't have. May I ask this type of mooncake pastry doesn't require alkaline water, is it?

yochana said...

Hi delia,

you can add some alkaline water if you want. Add in 1/2 tsp. alkaline water. It gives a better colour to your pastry.

delia said...

Thanks for the fast reply, aunty. I'll be making it again soon.

Hi Aunty,

Can advise if it's ok for me to omit Rose flavoured sugar and wine? Understand we can omit the wine, but how abt the sugar? Do we need to subsitute with normal sugar?

Regards,
Vanessa

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Vanessa,

Yes you can omit the wine. You can add in brandy if you want to.

As for sugar, follow my recipe. You can cut down sugar if you want to. I used the normal sugar.

Hi Aunty,

One more qns, do u think it's alright to use RUM to replace brandy? Will it affect the original taste with brandy? =p

lyn

Aunty Yochana said...

hi lyn,

yes you can use rum instead of brandy.

Aunty Yochana said...

hi lyn,

they call it "Kat peng" in cantonese. You can either get it from Kwong Cheong Thye or Sun Lik.

Hi Lucy,

Thank you for the recipe and tips for the mixed nuts mooncake. I baked a batch of them and they were enjoyed by my 88 year- old parents....it's their favourite mooncake!

No worries about them breaking their teeth as they were soft. Last year's attempt, from a store recipe, was hard.

Will be baking more of your other mooncakes. Thank you once again for sharing your recipes so generously.

Cheers,
Jeannie

Aunty Yochana said...

Thumbs up Jeannie, your parents must be very proud of you.

Jas said...

hi aunty yo,

after seeing the success in my traditional baked mooncakes, my mother on law told me that her favourite is mixed nuts ham mooncake, so i thought of making them for her. But i saw your recipe uses barbeque meat, is it the same as the mixed nuts ham mooncake? (Kindly enlighten me abt this type of mooncake because i have never eaten it before, thank you!)

Aunty Yochana said...

hi jas,

i used bak kwa lah...you can also honey baked ham.

rgds

Jas said...

hi aunty yo,

just wanted to say thanks for sharing this recipe. Everybody gives a thumbs up after eating the mooncake. Some even commented that is even better than store bought ones!

Aunty Yochana said...

Yes jas, you're right.

I made an order for a nice lady who gave me this msg:

Hi Aunty Lucy

Would like to share with you after all these years, this year is the first time my husband enjoy your mooncake, he keep saying very nice and he ate 2 mooncakes at one go. In the past he don't even want to take a bite. My son needless to say, he takes small small bites to slowly enjoy...haha. The fillings taste very good, not sweet which suits me very well. Thanks again

You have a great day!.

rgds.

delia said...

Hi Aunty,
Just wanna know whether we can use this pastry to make the traditional mooncake as this type is softer. Tq.
