Super Easy Eggless Chocolate Cake

It was Mother’s Day in Sweden last Sunday. And I made this cake here for me, because I’m a mother too, obviously and both my daughter are still too tiny to make me anything edible (duh!)๐Ÿ˜› But I got a giant MOM mug and pills of love from them (well, they were from husband of course, but let’s take it as their presents)๐Ÿ˜€ There was some funny moments when my eldest daughter gave the presents to me though. She came running to the kitchen when I was doing some stuffs and then she said, “Bunda –(it’s Indonesian for mother, and what my daughters call me)–, Pappa got you a surprise!” Then hubby was like, “No, it’s a present from you and Eira –(my baby daughter)– not from Pappa”, he said. And then Alyzza looked confuse and said, “Oh yeah, from me” with a big grin on her cheeky face. Pretending to look a bit surprise I asked her where did she get the money to buy me presents because I haven’t given her pocket money …

Terang bulan

Terang Bulan (Indonesian Pancake Balls) again!

It’s Friyay! Very grey here though. Hopefully we’ll get some sun in the weekend because me and some of my Indonesian friends are planning to have a picnic on Sunday as well as a farewell party for a friend who’ll go back to Indonesia on Monday๐Ÿ˜ฅ Anyway, if you’re following my blog, I’ve shared the recipe for Indonesian pancake here. I’ve been using that recipe until I found this one. And never go back again since then. You see, the best way to cook Indonesian pancake is by using iron pan. Or any thick pan. And with low heat. Because our pancake is pretty thick compare to other pancakes. And by using thick pan, it will cook evenly. If you use normal non stick pan, the most common thing will happen is that the bottom will be super dark but the top will still be wet. So thick pan will make it cook evenly and will give it a nice golden brown colour. This time I was experimenting with new pan. Got it from my …

oreo cheesecake

No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake

Yohooo!!! Morning morning! Today is sunny here just a little bit colder than yesterday. Summer is coming all of a sudden from last week. Before that it was still end of winter. We skipped spring here. The cherry blossoms didn’t last very long. Not even a week because of the sudden heat. Light and refreshing sweets is the best in the summer. We’re not a big fan of cheesecake in this house but there was an offer from cream cheese. As a typical housewife, what can I do when I see weekly offer?๐Ÿ˜› So I took 2 packs of cream cheese without knowing what will I do with them. Just at the right time, my eldest daughter asked for oreo when we did our grocery shopping. Later at home, I thought about oreo cheesecake will be nice for our dessert in the weekend. But I prefer no bake cheesecake. While looking for ideas in pinterest I found this cute cheesecake from a blogger I’m following. Bakers Royale. I love love love pretty much all of …

Chocolate Mousse

Summer is surely here now. After rain and wind pretty much all day everyday around 2 weeks ago, but since last week, the weather was getting better. Bright and clean sky. And just enough wind. Perfect. My husband and oldest daughter are going to a theme park today. I really want to come along too of course, but unfortunately it’s a bit chilly even though the sun shines brightly. And I don’t want my baby daughter to get sick from staying out all day. So I decided to stay home with her. Watching one of my favourite Korean Show while organizing my blog and some other stuffs. Today I want to share chocolate mousse. I know I’ve made this before and serve it in chocolate cups and also made the pie version, and in fact, it’s the same recipe again. Only served it in a different way. I had 2 pieces of brownies that won’t be enough for dessert for me, husband and my daughter. So I tried to make the most of it by …

budapestrulle2

Budapestrulle

  Good morning! Today I’m sharing one of Swedish sweet called Budapestrulle (Budapest roll). Confused? Yes, same here. I thought this cake was from Budapest, Hungary. But apparently not. You can read more about it here (the page is in Swedish but you can always ask help from google translate๐Ÿ˜‰ ) If you like roll cake, this is the light version. And just like other roll cakes, you can always use what ever you like for the filling. The common fruits for the filling are apricot, mandarin and raspberry. Fresh or canned (except for raspberry, have to use the fresh ones). Same for the topping. Some people like it with just some chocolate and icing sugar. But I like it with more cream and fruits. Just perfect! I have to admit though, this doesn’t look very pretty. I waited too long to roll it, so the cake (meringue) was hardening already and cause all the cracks all over the place. Hopefully next time I make it it will look much better๐Ÿ™‚ Here is the recipe …

Black Glutinous Rice Steamed Cake

A short post today. Before we talk about the post, I want to say happy new year to all of you! I know it’s late but better than nothing. And also this is my very first post for this year. Hopefully it’ll be a good year ย :) (I know it will, at least for us, because our additional family member will be here next month!) Now about the recipe๐Ÿ˜‰ If you’re following my instagram, you must have seen this cake in my instagram. I was craving for them and luckily I still have a little bit of black glutinous rice flour and enough to make 1/2 of the recipe. Glutinous rice is a sticky rice, read more here. The white one doesn’t taste much, the black one however has a signature taste (in a good way). You can also use the white glutinous rice flour to make this cake if you can’t find the black ones. And it’s gluten free too๐Ÿ˜‰ In this post, I also include the Indonesian version of the recipe. FYI, I …

sweet potato doughnuts

Sweet Potato Doughnuts

Cold Monday here. How was your weekend / holiday? I spent mine at my mum-in-law’s place for a few days. Always nice to go there. Her house is in the middle of forest (almost). Very quiet and nice. Today I want to share another doughnut recipe. I’ve posted some before like old fashioned doughnuts, potato doughnuts also baked doughnuts. But doughnut is always all time favourite sweet treat, so it’s never enough with just 1 recipe. The difference with the previous recipes I’ve posted is that this one is fluffy and light but a bit heavy at the same time. Difficult to explain. I think because the amount of sweet potato in it and less egg yolk compare to potato doughnut. It also has a sweetness that you can only get from sweet potato minus the smell. Worth to try in my opinion. A little bit twist, I baked these doughnuts. So they’re not oily and greasy. I get the recipe from my all time favourite Indonesian blogger, you can see her blog here. Even …

Prinsesstรฅrta (Swedish Princess Cake)

Hi, it’s me again! (Whoaaa, I can’t believe this, I’m posting something new again only after a week!) Today I want to share a fancy yet very simple cake to make. This is one of Swedish signature cake. Usually served during birthdays or other special occasions. And I like this cake a lot. This is only the second time I made this since I’m married to the sexy Swedish guy aka my husband. But I think it looked much better than the first one. For comparison I’ll show you the first one I made. Please don’t pay attention to the rose. It was my first time trying out fondant rose and didn’t have any equipment. Only rolling pin and my hands๐Ÿ˜€     If you have IKEA or been there before, I’m sure you have seen this cake (or maybe even tried it?). It does look fancy with so many layers in it, but it’s actually very easy to make. Even when you don’t feel like making a single thing for the cake, you can …

Strawberry cake

Snapshots from Ridha’s Kitchen

Hello December, hello everyone! It’s pretty much a dead blog is it not? Please blame it on my pregnancy hormones. They make my brain slower, mood swings, not to mention other unexpected things. This time is definitely slightly more difficult compare to my first pregnancy. Just hoping I won’t have a slightly more difficult delivery too. Anyway, I really am sorry for letting the blog abandoned like this for long time now. Even though we still have around 11 weeks until our new family member arrives, but I’ve been reading a lot about baby stuffs than I ever did with our first daughter (long story). I spent around a week (for one item) doing research and reading reviews and everything before deciding on which one to buy. That’s how I spent my time in front of computer lately (more like on my tablet and lay down on the bed, I dislike sitting in front of computer since being pregnant). I actually have tried out so many new recipes (mostly Indonesian foods and snacks). But I …
