Recipe Ingredient

  • Skin
  • 200ml golden syrup
  • 1tsp alkaline water
  • 1/4tsp baking soda
  • 50ml palm oil
  • 280g flour
  • 40g cocoa powder
  • Filling
  • 300g lotus paste
  • 250g peanut butter, chilled
  • Egg wash
  • 1 eggbeaten with 1 tbsp milk and 1 tsp palm oil


  1. To prepare skin: In a bowl, mix golden syrup, alkaline water, baking soda and palm oil; allow to rest for 1 hour. Sift flour and cocoa powder over and knead into a smooth dough. Allow to rest for 15 minutes. Divide into 8 portions of 70 to 75g each.
  2. To prepare filling: Divide lotus paste and peanut butter into 8 portions each. Wrap the lotus paste around the peanut butter.
  3. To assemble: Flatten a portion of skin dough, place the filling in the centre and wrap the skin around, sealing with your fingers. Press into a flour-dusted mooncake mould, then unmould onto a greased baking tray.
  4. Bake in pre-heated oven at 170ºC for 10 minutes, then glaze with egg wash and return to the oven, baking for a further 10 minutes. Remove and allow to cool before storing.
