Homemade Traditional Mooncakes

These are the baked mooncakes that I made this year. I am so happy and blessed to have a friend, I, who is very good at taking pictures (I loved the pictures she takes of her children) and was willing to take time to share her knowledge with me. Thank you, I.

Snow Skin Mooncakes (Uses Olive Oil)

This year mid-Autumn festival falls on 8th September 2014.  My children love snow skin moon cakes. Most of the recipes found on the internet uses shortening as one of the ingredients. I was searching for a recipe that uses healthier oil/fats and I found Sugar & Everything Nice website that uses olive oil. Yay!!

Blueberries Crumble Cake

Blueberries are selling at a very low price in the supermarket this week. 4 boxes of ORGANIC blueberries going for $8.35, that is like $2 for each pack. I grabbed 8 boxes and used 2 boxes today to make a crumble cake.  I like the idea of a crumble cake (known also as coffee cake by the Americans, even though there is no coffee used in the recipe) because I get to enjoy both the cake and the cookie like crumble. :)

I have used the blueberries muffins recipe from earlier post and instead of baking into individual cupcake, I bake it in a 9" round pan and added crumble on top of the cake.

Apple Crumble

This week, my cell group craved for apple crumble. As it is on my to-bake list, I decided to make them my guinea pigs. 
The crumble turned out very well and the recipe will be a keeper.

Chocolate-Swirl Chcoclate Pound Cake

Pound cake uses very basic ingredients; butter, eggs, sugar and flour, to make. By using the best ingredients that you can get your hands on, the final product will be a very fragrant and satisfying cake.

Today's recipe is made a little sophisticated with the addition of chocolate. The use of good chocolate and cocoa powder, makes the smell and taste of the cake so much more luxurious.

Let's get started.
