Cooking Tips

When making quicksand filling, be sure to completely freeze the quicksand filling. When the bread is put into the custard filling, move quickly to avoid the quicksand filling to melt and mix with the custard filling, causing the flow to fail.

The Hong Kong-style milk emperor quicksand mooncakes are soft and waxy, not as crispy as the traditional Cantonese-style Beijing-style mooncakes. When they are baked, they are golden and slightly caramelized.

It is recommended to bake this moon cake in a short time. It is the key to make the surface of the moon cake form quickly in a short time. If the baking time is too long, the quicksand filling will heat up and expand, causing the moon cake to sag or even burst.

When making the crust, don't knead the dough too much, just mix it evenly and knead it slightly to avoid the appearance of tendons due to excessive kneading and elephant legs in the final product.

The above food formula, especially the seasoning formula, is for your reference only. I suggest you make adjustments to different degrees according to the actual situation of different raw materials in your country. Because the above recipe is only my recipe and making method in Hong Kong.
