While I was buying my moon cake supplies the other day, a young chap was exchanging recipe with a lady in the shop. I couldn't help but to eavesdrop on them.
Without any paper on hand, I asked for permission to note down his recipe on my palm. I was clutching my "recipe" for dear life as I am prone to forget about it and went to wash my hands upon reaching home.
Got home, and quickly copied it on a piece of paper. He was even nice enough to give me his email. True enough, I missed out one important component and waited for his response.
The first batch I actually threw it away as I over knead the dough and it became hard. The second batch turned up okay but I will leave this recipe for you to decide whether you like it or not.
BTW, I am submitting this post to Aspiring Bakers #11: Mid-Autumn Treats (September 2011) hosted by Happy Home Baking
