I was extremely lucky to be back in Singapore during the Mid Autumn Festival. Why? Because this is the only time you can find mooncakes. Traditional Cantonese mooncakes are usually made with sweet lotus paste, salted egg yolks and sometimes with melon seeds or other nuts. It has a rich golden brown baked crust with Chinese characters imprinted on the top of the mooncake. Nowadays, recipes of mooncakes are so diverse: Cantonese, Teochew, Taiwanese, Suzhou and Modern Snow Skin. Some recipes even come with a Singaporean touch - Durian mooncakes and Pandan mooncakes.
Durian .. is the most loved or hated fruit by people. It's like the cheese affair. It is yellow, stinky and smells almost rotten. Despite the smell, the taste is pretty sweet and creamy. It melts like chocolate in the mouth.
