I hope your Mid-Autumn festival was a great one yesterday!
This year has been a fabulous one and I received quite a number of mooncakes from some generous sponsors (thank you so much!) – so much so that I don’t really want to eat mooncakes for a looonnngggg time after that! D:
Regardless, I still bought mooncakes this year for my mom and the bf’s family because well, it’s tradition!(:
Yuen Fatt Biskut 源發餅家
Collected my mooncakes via self collection as the bakery is not based in Singapore and I was really excited to try them out!(:
If you were wondering, this is the original bakery based in Kluang, Malaysia called Yuen Fatt Biskut 源發餅家.

If you are willing to travel all the way to Kluang to get the mooncakes then good for you! But for lazy people like me, I’d rather pay a little more to be able to get hold of them 😛
These are the prices are from HERE!
Mix (Pandan x Lotus x Red Bean – No Yolk)
I selected the mix flavours as I wanted to try out all 3 flavours available. Didn’t get the one with yolks as my mom’s cholesterol level is pretty high, plus recommendations did recommend the one without yolks anyway(:
Really find the shape of these Shanghai mooncakes really unique don’t you agree?
If you were wondering about the holes in the mooncakes, I heard that 3 holes means no yolks though the one on the left doesn’t have any holes though..;/
As mentioned, there are 3 flavors – Pandan / Lotus Paste / Red Bean. All 3 of the mooncakes are rather big but you slice them up easily. The crust is very buttery soft and melts in your mouth, literally while the filling is very generous. I like the Pandan flavour the most, red bean the second and the lotus paste last!
Here’s the only problem I find with the mooncakes – you can polish off a box within a day — AND you will want more!
Meanwhile, the bf and his family thinks that it seems more eating egg tarts but I really like how the mooncakes are actually!(: Looking at this picture makes me feel happy – totally feel like eating them again now!!
P.s…Now if you’re more handy in the kitchen, you can make your own mooncakes too! Check out the recipe here: http://nasilemaklover.blogspot.sg/2014/08/kluang-mooncake.html
UPDATED: My colleague stays at Kluang, so she was able to help me get hold of these mooncakes. Another alternative is ordering them from thejewelsthatdance’s blog (more expensive cos of delivery etc) like what I did previously!
