What is a Mooncake?
Mooncake is a Chinese pastry made and consumed during mid autumn festival or 中秋节, which falls on August 15th on lunar calendar. A mooncake usually has a pastry-like crust and the inside of mooncake is filled with fillings such as red bean paste, lotus seed paste and even durian.
This Durian Mooncake recipe is from my contributor Siew Loon. She was inspired by the recipe and photography from Ann Coo Journal that she had to make these durian mooncake. If you love durian, you will definitely love the flavor.
This year, mid autumn festival falls on September 24, 2018. You can still get durian if you are in Malaysia or Singapore, so hurry up and make a batch of these mooncake to celebrate.
