Egg yolk pastry

This pineapple tart was given to me and it was bought from the same shop as the Taiwan coconut pastry.

Nice individual box

Name of the shop - (阿明師老店太陽堂)

The tart was nicely wrapped in plastic in the nice box.

It is actually in a plastic bag

The fillings - very little pineapple paste but lots of egg yolk from salted eggs.

    1. Then might as well give the whole mooncake with egg yolks as gift to other people because they are more expensive instead of korek the yolk out, hehehe.

    2. haha, no lah, what i mean was sometimes we cut out a piece to be shared, and there is yolk in the mooncake, so i sure korek that out to give to others who fancy yolk.. i happily eat my "hollow" mooncake without yolk~~ :D

  4. actually the lotus paste or the pineapple stuff are more expensive than the egg yolk lah, and yet those with egg yolks are selling at higher price than the plain ones.. :p

    1. If they use genuine lotus paste I think maybe more expensive than egg yolk but are pineapples more expensive than egg yolk? That I am not sure.

    2. I think it is because of the preparation effort and time. I remember the sifu in Restoran Oversea said the egg yolks require lower heat for baking, so the baking time for moon cake with egg yolk is longer. And you need skills to insert the yolk properly into the cake to avoid breaking.

    1. Yes I read about it in your post. Many brands in Taiwan all have this type of egg pineapple tarts.

  6. I've eaten pineapple cakes many times (from Taiwan or Macau), but I've never seen egg yolk incorporated inside.. I like salted egg yolks, in my mooncake, "harm yok jung", everything, so I think I will like these too..
