Traditional Mooncake again

Hahaha...tried mooncake again, the previous too flaky, this time I tried without egg wash.

Ingredients (A) for mooncake pastry
50gm plain flour
30gm golden syrup
15gm oil
1/4 tsp alkaline water

Ingredients (B) for mooncake filling
Chocolate Paste (bought from baking supply store)

1. Mix ingredients (A) till well combined. Set aside for 40 minutes.
2. While waiting for (A) to be done, divide chocolate paste into portion. Roll into balls.
3. Once (A) is done, divide equally.
4. Wrap filling into mooncake pastry. Roll into balls. Press into mooncake mould. Tap lightly to de-mould. Repeat until dough finishes.
5. Bake in preheated oven at 200'C for 10 mins. Remove and leave cool for about 15 minutes. Bake in oven again for 15 minutes till golden brown.
6. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack. Store in an air-tight container. The pastry will become soft, called “回油” (literally means ”returns oily and soft’) and shiny in one or two days.

1. No egg wash
2. Proportion: for small mooncake, i used 40gm filling, 20gm dough skin

Original : Keiko's recipe
