Shanghai Mooncake

After reading a few different mooncake recipes, I notice Shanghai Mooncake is the easiest one for me. My first tasted Shanghai Mooncake was few years back from my good friend Jane.

I still remember how tasty her Shanghai Mooncake. I miss her a lot really. Those day she freeze many good stuffs that she bake for me then she will bring all in one time when she took leave to visit me. What a blessing!!

This mooncake is very tasty as the pastry is totally different from the traditional mooncake. The buttery pastry is so fragrant to go with the less sweet lotus paste. I served the cell group and everyone thumbs up. Definately make this again not only for mid autumn festival but all year round.

Recipe adapted from my favorite blogger eileen

150g plain flour
50g icing sugar
25g milk powder
12g custard powder
3/4tsp baking powder
