Red yeast powder is getting popular as a food colouring for baking and cooking like char siu and peking duck. It’s been used in China and Asian countries for centuries as a traditional medicine. I’ve added about a teaspoon of red yeast powder into this mooncake recipe to give it a nice red colour to the cake without any egg wash and glaze like the traditional mooncakes.

Sift All-Purpose Flour (1 cup) and Red Yeast Powder (1 1/4 tsp) in a bowl. Make a well in the center and pour in sugar syrup mixture. Use a rubber spatula to mix and form a soft dough. Cover with a cling wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes.

Then bake the mooncakes again for another 10-15 minutes.
