It’s Mid-Autumn festival soon. Being more health-conscious nowadays, I’ve stayed away from mooncakes for the past two years. And I believe I’m not the only one finding mooncakes out there too sweet to savour. This year however, I was delighted with Bing Liang Bakery (饼亮)’s traditional mooncakes made in less-sugar recipes.
Vlog of our afternoon tea
We made a vlog of our afternoon tea and mooncake! This is an asmr video so watch with sound on. We hope you’ll like it~
Verdict, we loved it. We thought that the durian mooncake might be sweet, but to our surprise it was not. It was just the right amount of sweetness. We think it’s because of a good mix of durian and lotus seed paste that resulted in a mooncake that is not cloyingly sweet. There was just a light hint of durian, which leaves you wanting more.
Bing Liang Bakery’s 20-year old recipe, perfected over the years
Traditional mooncake bakeries like Bing Liang Bakery are hard to come by in this age. Many hotels and bakeries have come up with their own creative versions with all sorts of flavours, while Bing Liang Bakery has stayed true to the original, baked, golden brown crust goodness. They have perfected the family secret recipe over two decades.
Re-usable drawer boxes – less waste
I was delighted to find out that the mooncakes were housed in drawer boxes. I’m definitely looking forward to how I can re-purpose them. I appreciate that Bing Liang made mooncake boxes that can be re-used and not be thrown away. This was a huge plus for me.
Beautiful details on mooncakes
Another thing I noticed of the mooncakes were the intricate floral designs and the huge and clear Chinese words. I found them extremely beautiful and took some time to admire their details. I was amazed that there was no breakage in the crust, given the intricacy of the designs.
Low sugar mooncake varieties
Bing Liang Bakery has moved along with health trends and introduced Low Sugar mooncakes. I think in the years to come, more and more people will opt for less sweet mooncakes. And of course, this means that elderly in the family can continue to enjoy these treats without too much worry. :)
If you’ve noticed, all the mooncakes here are still in their individual packaging. I’m planning to share them to family and friends, and therefore have kept them packed.
