《爱.月饼》是延续《面包新浪潮》及《过年饼》后,另一本由ALAN与Y3K合作所出版,值得珍藏的好食谱。

虽然人类已经上到太空,月球的迷底已被揭开;然而中秋节对华人的意义并不因此而淡化。每逢农历八月十五夜晚,依然可以看到一家人坐在皎洁的夜光下一边吃月饼一边赏月,长辈向后辈讲述嫦娥奔月、吴刚伐桂、玉兔捣药等神话故事,让这华人文化一代代流传下去。虽然传统点蜡烛的纸灯笼已逐渐被现代化电池灯笼所取代,然而中秋节吃月饼的习俗依然延续。在马来西亚,甚至连友族都被这节日气氛所感染,对月饼爱不释手!

月饼的市场比起从前有过之而无不及,随着消费者的要求越来越高,以及市场上的竞争越来越激烈,许多商家不但在外形及包装上求变求新,馅料的多样化更让人大开眼界。我们这次找来馅料专家“友爱”配合,在全国各地都有多种高素质馅料供应,让打算自己动手做月饼的读者省却炒馅料的麻烦。

这个中秋节,让我们花点心思做月饼,不论是送礼或者自家享用都特别有意义。

The Mid-Autumn Festival or known as the Mooncakes Festival is a time for jollity as the highlight concerns the mooncakes. In the bygone era, families would purchase these sweet stuffed pastries from restaurants or biscuit manufacturers. But today, certain changes have crept into the taste, ingredients and production of mooncake making.

It is no more a closely guarded secret as Chef Alan Ooi teaches readers the art of making mooncakes. Times have changed and readers can swing along with the trend to try innovative recipes of making mooncakes.

In Malaysia, the meaning of the festival associated with a long yarn of history and a yard of folklore may have dimmed but the symbolism remains. Try moulding different but delicious mooncakes in the comfort of your own home and thank Alan for all his useful pointers.

Enjoy the mooncakes.

Hi Hi! I am a great fan of your y3k books. I've got the mooncakes and the layer cakes books. I would like to check with you where can I get the mooncake presser with interchangeable plates that is shown in your book? Can it be found in JB's Ng Ming Huat? I live in Singapore and may make a trip to get that gadget. Thanks in advance! :)

regards,
eileen

Dear Eileen,

Thank you for your support. Most of the ingredient shops (including Ng Ming Huat) published in Y3K series of cookbook carry the moulds used in our cookbooks. It's better for you to call them to confirm if the stocks are available before you go. Their contact numbers are printed in the book.

Regards,

Y3K Publisher

Hi,

I truly enjoy this book so much - "Mooncake", have tried out some of it & was really good.

My question, recipe 22, "soochow" mooncake, the butter oil req for water dough, is it refer to "Ghee" or pastry margarine or something else, can't figure out what's this

petit four said...

Hi,

I've sent a comment earlier today,just to amend my query is on #28 Fookchow mooncake instead of #22.

Also, for #31 Minnie chocolate mooncake, what kind of flour are we suppose to dust on the wooden mould?

Thank you for your time

rgds
Yvonne Lim

Y3K food & travel said...

Dear Yvonne,

Thank you for your support.

Butter oil is an artificial butter which is available at most of the ingredients shops. It is harder than butter, the finished baking products will be more crispy in texture and more fragrant. It looks more solid compared to those using butter.

You can substitute it with butter if unavailable.

For the Minnie mooncake, ordinary (all purpose flour) is used to dust the mould.

Regards,

Y3K Publisher

Hi! I had bought this recipe book. May I know the flour for Pingpi Mooncakes, is it can buy from the shop or need to process the normal flour then only get the Pingpi flour? If really need to process it can I have the recepi how to process it?

Y3K food & travel said...

Commercial Koh Fun (ingredient of skin for Pingpi mooncakes) is available at most of the ingredient shops listed in pages 8-9 of the Y3K cookbooks Vol. 11 - 'Mooncakes'. Not recommend to do it yourself as the texture will not be the same as ready made ones.

Ivy Tan said...

Hi, i am from Singapore.I am just wondering if i can add flavorings to the lotus paste, such as rose syrup. If yes, how much should i add, so that it will not affect the texture. Thanks

Y3K food & travel said...

Hi Ivy,

You can add any flavouring into lotus paste as desire. Amount of flavouring adding into it depends on how strong you want the flavour to be, normally between 1 tsp - 1 tbsp of flavouring can be added into 1kg of lotus paste.

Ivy Tan said...

Hi, thanks for your reply. Btw, for the traditional mooncake skin and snow skin, if i were to cut down on the icing sugar, will it affect the texture of the skin?

Y3K food & travel said...

Hi Ivy,

You can reduce the sugar of mooncake skin, but the texture will be harder, crack easily and turn bad easily.

Ivy Tan said...

Hi, i see. I really appreciate your reply to all my queries. Thank you.

Ivy Tan said...

Hi, sorry for asking so many questions. I made some snow skin mooncake today. I used the recipe for blueberry mooncake, the mooncake turned out to be soft. Should it be soft or firm? Coz those mooncakes sold outside are rather firm. Kindly advice me. Thank you very much.

Ivy Tan said...

Hi,when i slice the mooncake, it tends to be sticky, quite diffcult to slice them apart.

Jas said...

hi,

I tried making the yam paste, following the full recipe on Taro Flaky Mooncake. But the paste seems quite dry. Is it normal? Or because i fried too long? Anyway to improve the texture?

thanks,
jas

Y3K food & travel said...

Pingpi mooncakes cannot be sliced immediately, it should be kept in the fridge for at least one hour to cool before slicing.

Pingpi mooncake is soft in texture to obtain a beautiful solid design.

Y3K food & travel said...

Hi Jas,

Thank you for your support.

This recipe's taro filling is drier compare to normal taro filling, because the mooncake is baked instead of deep-fried, to avoid the filling from expanding too much when baking. If you want the filling to be moist, you can add extra 20ml oil into it.

Hi Michelle,

I am sorry that we have not published a book named "Mooncake Sonata".

xiaogu said...

你好!请问我跟足书上的食谱去做那个双色软糕卷,为什么做不成形呢???

y3k said...

应该是材料或过程某方面出错了!你可以联络作者,或打电话来我们公司。通过电话互动,可以找出你出错得地方。

y3k said...

作者电话:012-2338221

我们公司电话:03-89453000

xiaogu said...

你好!我有打过作者电话可是不通哦!我所买的就是你们网页上的这本Y3K Cookbooks Vol.11- Mooncakes 爱.月饼目录里面第44的双色软糕卷!因为我要从汶莱打电话去你们那边问不是很实在,所以我还是说一下我做这个糕点的情况在这边交流可以吗?糕粉木薯粉我都是放100克,水是850毫升,糖200克,鱼胶粉50克,我把这些都混合在一起,然后在拿去煮熟。然后按步骤做下去,可是它冷了之后和没有冷的时候一样软软的。是木薯粉不一样还是鱼胶粉的用法错了呢!?因为鱼胶粉在和水那些混合的时候一戳戳的弄不融。

Y3K food & travel said...

1)问题出现在B料的幼糖及鱼胶粉。两者必须先混匀才与A料拌成糊,等5分钟再煮成浓糊。(必须确保鱼胶粉彻底溶解,否则不会凝固)。

2)做法(1)必须是将A料倒入B料,而非相反(结果会不一样)。一定要拌匀才可以继续第二个步骤。

xiaogu said...

哦,那我真是错的太厉害了,乱乱来。谢谢你!

xiaogu said...

请问彻底的溶解是不是不能看到一点的颗粒呢!还有是不是要煮到很浓稠的糊啊。

y3k said...

不能看到有颗粒才算彻底溶解。

浓稠但不滚不冒烟。

Hi,

Just wanna check with u, what's brand of agar-agar powder used as shown inside the book? there're too many brand in market, eg. 美人鱼 or 玫瑰牌, both of them may bring different outcome to the mooncake, scare the different portion needed for different brand of agar-agar powder.
