Recommendations on how best to enjoy and warm up mooncakes at home
Heat the Custard Mooncake or Yogurt Custard mooncakes in an air fryer at 160°C for about 3-4 minutes, or put it in the oven at 150°C for about 10 minutes. Please note baking times may vary depending on your oven. Allow to cool for 1-2 minutes. These steps should allow for a beautiful golden crust with the right bite and a soft, gooey custard centre.
Alternatively, the mooncakes may also be warmed in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
