Teochew Taro Mooncakes – Recipe

Also known as 'spiral mooncakes' and 'thousand layer mooncakes', these are quite different from the Cantonese-style moulded ones. The centre can be anything, but the outside consists of a delicately thin, layered, flaky pastry that's created by folding and rolling two types of dough together.

Pumpkin Pie Mooncakes- Recipe

One week to go until the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival 中秋节 and I'm still making mooncakes- this time of the iconic baked Cantonese kind. These ones are a little different from the usual lotus-paste-and-salted-duck-egg combination of filling: they're filled with pumpkin pie custard.

Cheesecake Snow Skin Mooncakes- Recipe

The pink ones are strawberry-flavoured and the patchy purples ones are purple sweet potato. Since I'm not happy with the overall effect of the purple sweet potato ones, I'm only going to post the recipe for strawberry, for now. The filling is the same: vanilla cheesecake.

Pink Port-Poached Apple Surprise in Meringue Baskets- Recipe

Remember when I entered the first Godiva Chocolate Challenge last year with two days to spare until the deadline? Actually, I barely do, either. Anyway, this time they Tweeted me- along with the other finallists of 2014- to let me know about the start of this years.

Challenge accepted.
