Ingredients

    Dough:
    450g Self-raising flour
    25-90ml milk
    1 tsp Baking Powder
    1/2 cup of sugar
    2 extra large eggs
    6 tablespoons oil or melted butter

    Filling:
    100g Red Bean Paste
    5 Rich Tea biscuits
    0.5 cup Walnuts, in shell, edible yield
    1 large pear
    2 cups apples, quartered
    5 tbsp Honey, 5 tbsp

Directions

To make Filling:
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius.
2. Boil apples and pears. Then mash them up.
3. Add all of the filling ingredients into a bowl & mix.
2. Divide the paste into 12 portions.
3. Roll these up into a ball.

To make Dough:
1. Sift flour, powdered milk and baking powder together.
2. Beat sugar and eggs together until creamy and white, about 10 minutes.
3. Mix in the melted butter.
4. Then lightly fold in the dry ingredients.
5. Divide this mixture into 12 portions.

To make the mooncakes:
1. Roll out dough to circles.
3. Place a portion of filling each in the centre and bring up the sides to encase it completely. Pinch cracks to seal and roll between your hands to make a ball.
4. Lightly flour the mould and press the dough ball into it, flattening it with the palm of your hand. Shake to tip out.
5. Place them on a baking sheet, brush tops with egg yolk, and bake for 30 mins.
6. Serve warm or cold.

  • I'd like to try this one, but have some questions... like - what is a tea biscuit? I'd never seen a filling with the bean paste and apple/pear walnut. But it looks like one that might be fun to try! - 8/12/11

    Haha, the traditional Chinese Mooncakes do not have any trace of fruits in the filling, but this is my adapted version. :) As for "5 Rich Tea biscuits", you can use your favourite sweet biscuits (e.g. shortbread, Bourbon, chocolate-chip cookies).
