MX Lava Custard Mooncake

Mid-Autumn Festival is on Friday, September 13th. Not only did we buy our mooncakes early this year, we already finished our entire box. Instead of the usual mooncakes, I tried a box of MX Lava Custard Mooncakes 美心流心奶黃月餅. So good.

I find that the standard mooncakes with lotus paste and salted yolk to be heavy and dense. One sliver is more than enough. And, at the end of the night, I am begging the guests to take the leftovers home.

In contrast, these are light and bite-sized. The serving recommendation is to re-heat for a few seconds in the microwave. It does make a difference in the temperature of the mooncake, but the center doesn’t much change texture. At first, I was expecting the custard to stream out like with a chocolate lava cake. I tried varying the heating times, but no amount of heating produces that effect. Still, it’s a great alternative to the traditional mooncake and a perfect size for a snack.

Marina is selling the MX Lava Custard Mooncake for $59.99. That was the best price I found. 99 Ranch was selling the same mooncakes for $72.99.

    I’ve found them at the Marina / 99 Ranch stores in Cupertino and San Mateo. It was earlier on in the season. By the time a week before the Moon Festival came around, most of the good selections were already gone.
