Taiwanese Salted Egg Yolk Mooncake 台式蛋黄酥月饼

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This salted egg yolk pastry is one of many Taiwanese specialty, but is widely sold in Malaysia many years back. Nowadays, you can easily get these pastry from any bakery shop or Chinese pastry shop. However, I’ll have to say homemade is always the best cause it’s fresh from your own oven. I really enjoy working out with pastry. It’s as good as bread making, brings joy and also the best & cheapest stress therapy for most mama. The other day, one of my reader mentioned that my Fuzhou mooncake looks just like those selling at Thye Moh Chan Bakery Shop. Wow, what a compliment ! Thank you so much Priscilla for your lovely words.

This round I prepared the salted egg yolk without steaming them. After separated from egg white, soaked egg yolk into vinegar and roughly wash away the outer layer. Finally, rinse through running paip water and pad dry with kitchen towel. And its all ready for use.

Ingredients for Pastry Dough :

120gm  all purpose flour
15gm icing sugar
45gm  butter, melted
70ml  cold water

110gm  all purpose flour
70gm  shortening

*Homemade Dou yong filling :  400gm 
(divide into 10 portions 40gm each)
* 5 pcs  salted egg yolk
* some black sesame for topping
* egg glazing : 1 egg yolk mixed with 1 tspn milk

Method :
(1) in one bowl, combine ingredients (A) except water, rub butter & the dry ingredients till well cooperated. Then add in water to form a non-stick soft.dough. Knead to smooth then set aside.
(2) in another bowl, combine ingredients (B) till everything well cooperated then divide into 10 portions.
(3) at the same time, divide dough (A) into 10 portions as well, then wrap ingredient (B) into (A) and sealed to form a ball. And leave aside to rest for 20 minutes
(4) for further rolling method, please refer here, Chinese Pastryor here.
(5) now, press both end of the pastry dough into center then flatten it by rolling it into round shape.
(6) wrap egg yolk into dou yong filling then round it.
(7) then wrap dou yong with pastry dough and sealed it, place the sealing part by facing down then slightly flatten it with the rolling pin.
(8) transfer filled dough to baking tray line with parchment paper then brush on egg glazing and top with sesame seeds.
(9) finally, bake at preheated oven 185′-190′C for about 20-25 minutes or till nicely brown.

For those who prefer thinner crust, just increased your dou yong filling in 65gm each instead of 50gm. Then wrap into thin crust pastry.

Just compare the one with egg glazing and the one without. Both look as good though !

Of course, you may use lotus paste if you want to but I prefer dou yong. I like the softness & clue like of the paste. And its much cheaper than lotus paste. Hope you guys will like it too. Happy baking everyone & have fun guys !
