Five Happiness Nutty Mooncakes 五仁月饼


I have bookmarked this recipe from Helena's kitchen since last year, finally i have a chance to try out this year..No one in the family fancy this mooncake except me, so i bake into the smaller size and small quantity..At the same time, i also able to clear all the leftover nuts (example pistachio from CNY) and "gam gam" (just nice) i have only 5 types of nut left, so perfectly to match this 五仁 (five types of nut).

I use the smaller pattern from this mooncake mould. I have started "Xian" (loose interest) on the bigger size of dragon pattern because i just bought another new mooncake mould, hehehe..

Wah first time see chicken floss in mooncake leh...very new to me! I wonder how it taste. :)) But frankly, I'm not so much of a fan to this kind of mooncake...think I must cultivate, because this is definitely more healthy!! ;)) Love the mini!

Mel said...

It look absolutely so beautifully baked. The pattern also look nice. Are these going to be your last baked mooncakes? Your family so lucky to have you to bake homemade mooncake as buying from shop now is so costly nowadays.

Got chicken floss and nam yue inside? Must be very fragrant, hor? Personally I don't like the one with nuts. Prefer lotus paste with egg yolk hee..hee...

You are incredible Sonia! Moon cakes are so pretty. I'm not much of a moon cake fan (more of mochi person) but always enjoy the beautiful mold and how gorgeous it looks at the end!
