月饼集锦 Mooncakes

【Cantonese-style Mooncake with Red Bean Filling】
by MaomaoMom

Mooncake is a Chinese traditional dessert for celebrating Mid-Autumn Festival, one of the most important holidays in the Chinese calendar. This year it falls on Sept. 27. There are two major styles of mooncakes: Cantonese-style and Suzhou-style. This recipe is Cantonese-style, known for its beautiful shape with clear and exquisite pattern on crust. This time I made traditional red bean filling, excellent.

  8. Jane says:

    谢谢毛毛妈,馅很好吃,就是三天以后皮很湿软,这是为什么?回油吗?我的馅炒得很干。

  9. J.J. Hagerty says:

    第一次做豆沙月饼。很成功。刚烤好的月饼,先生一口气吃了两个。我不明白为什么要等两天回油了再吃?刚考好的月饼热呼呼的,也很软,很香。

  10. Sandy says:

    毛毛妈你好,请问你那款刻有“毛毛妈”字样的月饼模具是那里定制的啊?

  11. Brenda says:

    毛毛妈你好,请问为什么我搓的月饼皮很干而且会散落,没办法包馅?会不会是静置太长时间导致饼皮不粘稠了?

  12. Diana says:

    毛毛妈,我的月饼放395F烤箱6分钟后摊开变大变薄了,是什么原因?要怎么改进?谢谢

  13. lan says:

    毛毛妈 为什么我做的皮很粘很粘,感觉没有办法包了都

  14. eva says:

    毛毛妈,可不可以用蜂蜜直接代替转化糖浆啊,糖浆看起来好多糖的样子,我爸爸血糖高,想说做的健康点给他吃,如果可以的话吗,蜂蜜的量应该是多少呢?用等量的蜂蜜代替糖浆吗?

  15. tina says:

    请问毛毛妈, 为什么我的皮子总是开裂呢?

  16. Lanny says:

    我做碱水时,可能火大了,几分钟就到了108度,慌忙离开火。才发现最好15小火。我已经加了碱,过滤了,也不知做得成功不成功。我要不要继续。

  17. Lanny says:

    明白了,108 是摄氏度,得换226华氏。重做,花了10分钟到温度,make sense now:)

    非常感谢毛毛妈分享好菜谱和好方法,第一次正式做月饼就是看到这个,做了几次都很成功,并且已经扩展到可可皮和咖啡皮。就是想补充一点关于糖浆浓度温度用水量的问题,我觉得月饼糖浆的浓度如果太高,操作时不是太容易,因为会比较黏糊。所以根据爱心为为君的提示,75%的糖浆浓度比较合适,而用水量也是根据已知的浓度来确定,因为糖浆的浓度是糖与糖和水的比值来确定的。再者就是温度,浓度高的需要温度相应高,具体可以参见wiki invert syrup上的说明,还有柠檬作为催化剂的用量。最后还是非常感谢毛毛妈这个网站,我是您的忠实不爱留言粉丝,希望您能带来更多的好菜谱,祝您全家愉快。
