Flaky Mooncake

The original recipe uses century egg which I’ve omitted.  This is just a plain flaky mooncake filled with store-bought white lotus paste.

    • This flaky mooncake is on pg 29. It’s actually century egg flaky mooncake. I can’t associate century eggs with mooncake, that’s why I omitted it and make into a plain flaky mooncake instead. Thanks for your compliment. Btw, your angku kuehs are beautiful too!
