Mooncake Fillings

Now that we’ve made our salted egg yolks, the question is – what filling to make for our mooncakes? Mung bean, azuki bean, and lotus seed pastes are some of the most common fillings, and I love them all. Personally, I’m especially partial to lotus seed – which is your favorite? But I’ve also seen

Salted Egg Yolks
