With the Mid-Autumn festival quickly approaching, companies are starting to roll out their mooncakes. Everyone is trying to offer something new and interesting that will impress those who set eyes on it. Here are some interesting mooncake flavours that will make your friends go “wow!”.
Pearl Milk Tea
Casahana, a popular mooncake producer are jumping on the bandwagon that has taken us by storm this year. They have come up with a little treat called Brown Sugar Tea Au Lait.
It features a gooey brown sugar lava and tapioca pearls in the centre. This is enclosed in a thick and creamy milk tea paste. There are tea-inspired designs etched on the top of the cake.
Over in Ipoh, Jennifer Chung has created her own version of the popular cake treat. It involves petai. What?! There are three main ingredients involved in the making of this cake. It features a mixture of potato, sambal dried shrimps, and of course petai.
Jennifer currently works alone and makes about 100 mooncakes everyday. You can buy two for RM15 by contacting her at 011-33834667 or through the Ipoh Jacky Facebook group by 11th September.
Jane Lim, who is a full time baker working from home went on a keto diet just recently. However, with the Mid-Autumn festival approaching she found herself craving for mooncakes.
Unfortunately thanks to all the sugar and and carbohydrates, Jane was unable to satisfy her cravings. Instead of just giving up, she decided to create her own keto friendly ones.
Her cakes only have about 20% of the calories found in a normal mooncake. She uses almond flour, coconut flour, a little yam, and zero-calorie monk fruit sweeteners. This allows for the cakes to be low in carbohydrates.
Yeah that’s right, Oreo is officially selling their own version of mooncakes in selected markets in Asia. As of now, they are only available in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam but hopefully we will see some on our shelves soon!
So this coming Mid-Autumn Festival will you be on the hunt for interesting flavours or stick to the traditional ones we know?
