巧克力莲蓉月饼 Baked Chocolate Mooncakes

I've have this mooncake making recipe book for many years and I actually missed out this lovely chocolate moooncakes! This year I've also seen more homebakers attempting this baked chocolate mooncakes each with slight variations. I knew this year die die I must try it out since I've started my first batch of traditional baked mooncakes

The chocolatey flavour was so inviting that I could not wait and tasted one after it cooled down! Yes you need not wait for it to rest a couple of days before savouring unlike the traditional baked mooncakes. I really enjoy eating this chocolate mooncake, very rich chocolate crust encased with lotus paste, walnuts and chocolates chips! If you are a chocolate lover like me, I'm sure you will love this baked chocolate mooncakes too! ^0^
