Egg-yolk puff

 Egg-yolk puff is a traditional dessert originated in Taiwan. It’s a ramification of Taiwan mooncake. In recent years, this kind of dessert has became increasingly popular in China mainland that you can buy an egg-yolk puff not only in bakeries of various brands, but also on the internet and in supermarkets. Now let’s find out how the egg-yolk catches our taste bud.

蛋黄酥是一种起源于台湾的中式甜点,是台湾月饼的衍生品。近年来,这种甜点开始在中国大陆流行起来,你不仅仅可以在各种甜品店、面包房买到它,在各大超市及网上商城它的身影也随处可见。蛋黄酥为何具有如此大的魅力呢,现在就让我们一探究竟吧。

When we take the first bite of the egg-yolk puff, we will taste its surface with golden, delicious solidified liquid egg on it. When you have a second bite, your tongue will touch the fragrant, sweet, and soft bean paste. Maybe meanwhile you have already bitten the salty yolk. If you have ever eaten the salty yolk before, you will know how amazing it tastes. When you take another bite of the salty yolk, there will be golden and shiny egg oil streaming out of the puff and moisten your fingers with a strong nice smell around you.

当咬下第一口蛋黄酥,我们可以品尝到其表面凝固了的金黄色的喷香蛋液。再咬一大口下去,你会尝到清香甜蜜又细腻绵软的豆沙。这时候你可能已经咬到咸蛋黄了---如果曾经吃过咸蛋黄,你一定会觉得这是一种无与伦比的美味,甚至可能是你吃过的最棒的食物。再当你咬下一口咸蛋黄的时候,金黄色闪闪发亮的咸蛋黄油从蛋黄酥中流出,沾染到你的手指上,一股浓厚的香味即扑面而来。

   The five nuts mooncake

The most popular mooncake in China is the five nuts mooncake. Yet, its popularity comes not from its delicacy. To people's surprise, some people like it because it tastes really “unique”.

要说最受欢迎的月饼,那五仁月饼一定当之无愧。奇葩的是,它受欢迎的原因,可不是因为它有多美味,而是因为它口感上的“与众不同”。


Five nuts mooncakes are of the most traditional classic flavor. Compared with other mooncakes, five nuts mooncakes are much more expensive for they are filled with a variety of nuts and seeds such as almonds, walnuts, olive, sesame, and pumpkin seeds. 

五仁月饼是中国最传统的月饼口味之一,与其他月饼相比,它的制作成本较高,所以价格也会高出许多。正如它的名字一样,它是由五种果仁制成的——杏仁、核桃、橄榄仁、芝麻和南瓜籽。

However, for some people, the five nuts mooncake tastes really weird. And it’s much more expensive than other mooncakes. As a result, they don’t like it at all. 

当然也有这样的声音存在:他们认为五仁月饼的口感非常奇怪,且价格要比其它月饼高,所以他们并不喜欢五仁月饼。

   Lotus seed paste mooncake

Lotus seed paste mooncakes are a famous Mid-Autumn Festival dessert of Cantonese origin, which have enjoyed a good reputation all over China and even overseas.

著名中秋甜点莲蓉月饼起源于广东,如今已驰名海内外。莲蓉馅在中秋月饼馅中堪称奢侈之最。Lotus seed paste is considered the most luxurious mooncake filling made from dried lotus seeds. The process of making the paste is similar to that used to make smooth red bean paste. First, the dried seeds are stewed in water until soft and then mashed into a fine paste. The paste is then watered down to a thin slurry and passed through a sieve and into cheesecloth, with which it is squeezed dry. This produces a fine crumbly paste, which is then mixed with sugar or other sweeteners and often oil to produce a smooth, sweet paste.

莲蓉由干莲子制成,其制作过程与制作红豆泥相似。首先将干莲子放在水中焯软,捣碎成糊,接着将浓糊稀释成薄浆液,再经筛子和粗棉布过滤后榨干。最后得到一种口感酥脆的馅料,再加入糖等甜料和油,以增进甜软口感。

  

Fresh pork mooncake



Fresh pork mooncake, which is a kind of Suzhou-style moon cake, is smaller in size and well-known for its layers of flaky dough and features both sweet and savory types. The sweet version is filled with sugar, fresh almonds, and sweet bean paste, while ham, pork or shrimp with lard, pepper, ginger, garlic etc will be added into salty fillings. Nuts and sesame are also frequently used in Suzhou-style moon cakes.

鲜肉月饼是苏式月饼的一种,它体型更小,因酥脆层叠的饼皮和甜咸两种风味的馅料闻名。甜馅里有糖、新鲜的杏仁和甜豆酱,而咸馅中有火腿、猪肉或虾仁、胡椒、姜、蒜等。坚果和芝麻也经常被添加在苏式月饼中。

The Suzhou-style moon cakes are usually served hot.

  Chewy mooncake 

Chewy mooncake crust has a reddish-brown tone and glossy sheen. It is the most common type of crust used on Cantonese-style mooncakes. Chewy mooncake crusts are made of a combination of thick sugar syrup, lye water, flour, and oil, thus giving this crust rich taste and a chewy yet tender texture. Chewiness can be increased further by adding maltose syrup to the mixture.

劲道月饼皮呈红棕色,富有光泽,常见于广式月饼中,其配料为浓糖浆、碱水、面粉、油。该饼皮口感极佳,嚼劲十足,又不失酥嫩。在配料中加入麦芽糖可提升饼皮的劲道度,让人回味无穷。

  Snow skin crust is made of glutinous rice, which is frozen thus gaining the name "snow skin". The requirements of production, storage and transportation for snow skin mooncakes are more stringent than for baked mooncakes. Factories have to keep sterile conditions, and many manufacturers are requested to follow HACCP systematic for food safety.

冰皮由糯米冻制而成,因颜色和冷冻储存条件而得名。相较于烘焙型饼皮,冰皮在产品制作、储存、运输等方面的要求都更为严格,工厂必须保持无菌的工作状态。许多生产商选择应用HACCP管理方法以保证食品安全。
