Last year I wanted khổng lồ make them & try them, but this year I was sure I was going to chia sẻ with you the process of both recipes. When making the lotus paste, you will find a very similar process lớn making anko. It is true that it requires standing for quite a while, watching and stirring, but the result is well worth it.

The dough recipe that I leave you this year is the same as last year. I really lượt thích the result and, for the moment, I don’t see the need lớn modify it. What I have improved is the stretching process, so that we can achieve a very thin dough that wraps a large amount of filling. In addition, this process will allow us lớn handle the dough much better, preventing it from sticking to lớn both the work surface & our hands.


Lotus paste mooncake with salted egg yolk.This combination, without having tasted it before, already had me fascinated…. Just seeing the màu sắc of the lotus paste, I could imagine its taste. Which, by the way, is much better than I expected. However, my family found it rather bizarre… A sweet paste made from seeds and a salted duck yolk? Phew, no thanks!

You know what? It’s their loss! I found it fascinating, very different & a very balanced combination. They were utterly delicious. I can tell you that the salted yolk does not taste lượt thích an egg yolk as if we were eating a boiled egg yolk. The flavor is much more delicate và smooth. In the video clip you will see that I am making marks in the filling lớn have, constantly, located the yolks. So that they didn’t mở cửa one and find what they didn’t want.

On the other hand, I must say that the salted yolks I have used are not the common or usual ones. In Spain it is not easy to lớn find them…. I was in an Asian supermarket & saw the salted duck eggs. Immediately, I was super happy believing that I had found what I was looking for, but no. The taste is good and curious, but it is not.

The flavor is good & delicious, but the consistency, or rather hardness, is not what is needed for this type of elaborations. Even so, I decided to use them, since I had bought and opened them. So I apologize in advance because, when you see me cutting the mooncake, it will be hard to find the yolk, hahaha.

I really want to lớn make them at home and, I think, this is the best way lớn obtain the best result. The following ones will be better, in this aspect, no doubt.
