2011 Baked Mooncakes

I've recovered from my urticaria and eczema!  However, I been busy with my year end holiday planning, thus leaving me with not much time to blog :P  To keep the story short, just to share what I've made for Mid-Autumn Festival.

There are many new mould designs in the market.  I'm so tempted to add them to my collection but I really have insufficient storage space.  So it's the same old design that I have.

Last year I saw Anncoo made these but it was too late for me to try it out.  This year, I made an effort to do it.  Ann made big piggies (50g skin 70g paste), I made mini piglets (20g each).  Alright, I know I didn't do a good job, but at least I've tried my best in this attempt.  Made 11 piglets within an hour and it was almost time to cook dinner.  With balance 7 portion of dough, I used my mooncake moulds to complete the job.

As usual, I didn't eggwash the moonies, just left it as it is.

Oh... my ugly looking tail :P  I personally think this is the most difficult part.

Recipe here.  Do note that I've only let the dough stand for 20 minutes instead.

These so adoreable! I wonder how it taste like. In the past, my grandma used to buy for me. But they do not have any filling inside.

Hi Blessed homemaker,
Good to see you posting again. Am happy that your urticaria and eczema is cured. I had chronic urticaria and was on antihistamines for 2 yrs, so I can understand hoe you feel.

I just bought the same oven as you (as you recommended it) and am going to attempt your orange chiffon cake recipe. Saw the notes on your post regarding oven, but would also like to ask if you used the middle or bottom rack?
