This year’s Mid-Autumn Festival falls on October 1, 2020, which is tomorrow. So it is just the right time to make mooncakes at home. This is the easiest mooncakes to try at home, the classic Taiwanese mooncakes with red bean paste filling and a salted egg yolk inside, resembling the moon. Taiwanese mooncakes is different from the widely available Cantonese mooncakes which is much more difficult to make at home. Taiwanese mooncakes use the Chinese flaky pastry which I have written about before, but here you can see the actual demonstration of it.

Pâte à Choux / Choux Pastry (milk version)

Update October 11, 2016: Just finished watching an episode of Paul Hollywood City Bakes on SBS Food Network, and finally found the answer as to why the need to add milk in making choux pastry! According to Paul, the addition of milk makes a softer choux pastry; use water only if making choux to construct something such as the croquembouche tower as this gives a firmer choux bun.
