As promised, I have created a video that demonstrates the process for making these beautiful thousand layer spiral mooncakes.
I made these pastries as part of a larger pumpkin themed post for Round 8 of Project Food Blog. Together with pumpkin mochi cake and savory Chinese pumpkin cakes, this mooncake was part of a post that highlighted ways to use pumpkin in more unusual ways.
These pastries are a bit complicated to make, as the method involves making two types of dough – an “oil dough” and a “water dough.” Have you heard the old saying, “oil and water don’t mix”? That is the loose principle behind why this dough works. You wrap one type of dough over another, and then you flatten, roll it up, flatten again, and roll it up a couple times in order to create the layers.
Check out the 2-minute video to see it in action!
