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
