MINI MOON CAKES

A friend gave me these a few days ago.

Even though they’re not as sweet as American desserts, they really are quite good – actually so good that Steve and I ate them all at once. I like that they’re not so sweet-tasting – just enough to satisfy.

The dense, smooth, creamy, elegant texture is unlike any cake-type dessert I’ve ever tasted. These were the lotus paste variety, but mooncakes are made with many different ingredients and are usually most popular during the mid-Autumn festival in China.

Next time I’m at a Chinese market, I’ll definitely buy some.

UPDATE: Well, my friend gave me more, a different brand.

MOONCAKE

WOW!

“The Mooncake Name

Mooncakes (月饼 yuèbǐng /ywair-bing/) are named after the moon goddess (Chang’e), who is said to make this kind of cake.”
