  1. Hello..thank you for sharing! I'd like to try but I have several "problems" I live in a small town in France so Asian products are not handy! For the coconut, can I use the dessicated one – soak in water (maybe)? For the syrup, is that pancake syrup? Can I replace it with just some granulated sugar and some water or just sugar cane syrup? (The French don't eat pancakes. They eat crêpes with nutella or powdered sugar and not maple syrup) And, what is cooked glutinous rice flour? Is that the flour that has been heated in the oven or frying pan? Thank you in advance for your reply! Warm hello from France!

  2. Wow, they look good aren't they? It's fun to see you baked little Mooncakes, they are so cute. Thanks for sharing the video!

  8. Hi chi Trang I just went to pacific market here in Portland and was told that FDA did not allow any of the roasted flour from VN in to the states. which is the reason the stores for now does not have the pre-packaged bags.
