Kluang Mooncake 居鑾月餅

Still share mooncake today??  ^_^
Is it not the mooncake festival had just passed.
Yes,  yes,i must share this Kluang mooncake today.
Have you ever seen a rugby ball shape mooncake?
I read the interesting post Kluang Mooncake from my Ah Chi's (sister) blog, She mention that, this mooncake received good feedback from her family after she baked and let them sample. The crust is buttery and almost melt in mouth pastry with an salted egg yolk wrapped inside sweet lotus paste filling  (low sugar)!
Later then i saw Pink lady from Lucky Inn baked this too.
 Do you think this look like a little mice? My second ask me "mum, this look like a little mice to me! Is this a mice mooncake..LOL

The sweet lotus paste pair with salted egg yolk and the buttery almost melted in the mouth crust is SO GOOOOOD!!

Thanks Ah Chi for this fabulous recipe :D

Shark Fin Dumpling ~鱼翅饺

This Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow), is one of my favorite dumpling. Although it is named Shark Fin Dumpling, but they contain no actual shark fin in it. Some say the look and shape of the dumpling does look like shark fin and other do include in imitation shark fin, though. I am lucky to have spotted this long hibernating in the book shelf chinese dim sum book ‘香港地道小吃’ translated as 'Hong Kong Authentic Tapas' Well, Do, you find this look like Shark's Fin?? 看看形状像不像鱼翅呢??  Filling for the ingredients are prawn, mince meat, carrot, yam bean and black fungus. Get ready the filling and the wanton wrappers. This is the parade of my Shark's Fin dumpling ... lol Homemade parchment paper liner. Arrange them neatly into the bamboo steamer. HOT! HOT! From the steamer!! Loaded with filling ..YUM! ENJOY~ Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow) (Scallop dumpling /Cilantro dumpling - depends which filling you using) Recipe adapted from  ‘香港地
