Traditional Baked Mooncake With Mochi Filling @ 传统广式月饼

Like every year, we will received loads of mooncake catalogs from all over during the whole mid-autumn festive season. And I've been eyeing on one of those items....*TAG*..... Actually, this is my first attempt making the large traditional baked mooncake. And this year I got to make the large ones just because of the *TAG* mooncake that I was about to try out.

So, here it is the mochi filling traditional baked mooncake ! Just made them yesterday and it needs at least two days to rest before consuming. The mooncake crust will became soft & nice by then. So, it would be just nice for the coming Mid-Autumn festival which falls on this Sunday.

80gm   glutinous rice flour
20gm  wheat starch
