My Cooking Adventure: Traditional Moon Cake

in #teammalaysialast month
Today is public holiday so I decided to baked a Moon Cake. It's a Chinese cake that traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival. It is usually shared between family and friends during a family gathering.


I learn how to make this cake few years back. Its a simple recipe that everyone can do. In order to make a moon cake, you have to measure the ingredients precisely otherwise the texture of your moon cake will be uneven.


Here my simple Moon cake recipe.
