Cheesy Shanghai Mooncake 芝士上海月饼 (中英加图对照食谱)


I have actually scheduled this week to bake more varieties of mooncakes but due to unforeseen circumstances, my girl injured her toe and I had to bring her to the hospital to see the Pediatric Orthopaedic and more visits to the hospital as my boy has to see Pediatric Ophthalmology and mum has to undergo minor surgery. So, I am left with just one day to bake before the mid-autumn festival this Sunday. I have chosen to try out this cheesy Shanghai Mooncake which is so much easier as compared to the traditional Cantonese style mooncakes. It turned out to be fragrant and tasty. Do give it a try if you have some time. :) 

Wishing all a blessed and happy mid-autumn!

Method 做法:
1. Mix the lotus paste well with roasted melon seeds, divide into portions weighing 45g each and roll into balls. (If one salted egg yolk is added, reduce the lotus paste to 35g each) 

2. Mix the plain flour, corn flour and parmesan cheese powder well together, set aside. 

3. Use a hand whisk to beat the butter, sugar and milk till creamy.

4. Add in flour mixture, combine to form a soft dough.

5. Cover with cling wrap and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

6. Take the dough out from the fridge and knead it till smooth
 Divide into portions weighing 45g each. Flatten the dough with your palm and wrap in the lotus paste filling. Roll it round and arrange it on a baking tray laid with baking paper or baking mat.
6。 从冰箱取出面团,揉至光滑。平均分成每块45克。用手掌压扁面团,包入莲蓉馅,搓圆形,放在铺了烤纸或烤垫的烤盘上。

7. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degree Celcius 
top/bottom heat for 10 minutes.

8. Remove from oven, let rest for 5 minutes then brush the surface with egg wash and decorate the top with melon seeds or sesame seeds.

 Return to the oven to bake for another 20~25 minutes or until golden brown.

10. Let cool completely before storing in an air-tight container.

The cooking temperature as suggested in all my recipes serve as a guideline. Every oven has different thermostat, you may have to adjust the temperature and timing to suit your oven. Different brand of ingredients have different composites, thus there may be a slight difference in the end result.  食谱里的烘烤温度和时间只是供参考,每一架烤炉的恒温器都不同,请自己调适。不同品牌的材料有不同的复合材料,所以最终成品有可能稍有不同。
