Terang Bulan / Martabak Manis

Morning Monday ^^ I’m sharing with you Indonesian pancake again today. Just because I feel like it. I love all kind of pancake. Thick or thin doesn’t matter for me. But this one is the one I love the most. I’ve shared the recipe before here. I used the exact same recipe. Use a very low heat when you cook it, to avoid burn at the bottom and raw on top.     Stay warm and until next time πŸ™‚


Peach Galette

Tuesday is my favourite school day (not sure if I’ve mentioned this before) because my daughter’s school starts at 9.40 every tuesday. That give us plenty of time to enjoy breakfast and getting ready. And also writing a blog post πŸ˜€ I know peach is a summer fruit but I made this back in late September. And why I just posted this now? Because the photos were “lost” in the camera. I just found them few days ago and edited them right away. Since I have some other things to do today, I’ll go straight to the recipe. I used the recipe from here. And modified it a little bit. Until next time ^^  


Apple Pie Pockets

Good Morning from foggy Gothenburg ^^ Autumn is all about pumpkin, apple, cinnamon. Sine our family isn’t a big fan of pumpkin, apple is the only choice to make autumn sweets. I’ve made pies and crumbles before and I was looking for a new way to serve apple pie. Until I saw some photos of Mc Donald’s Apple pie. It seems like it’s pretty famous, I never tried it my self though. Our family rarely eat fast food in places like that since my first daughter were born. I sometimes crave for it when I see the ads on brochure or internet but when I actually eat them, they don’t taste like I expected or the last time I ate them. And after that my relationship with some fast food brands is done right there. Now, I prefer to make burgers, pizza, fried chicken etc at home. Cheaper and healthier πŸ™‚ Back to the pie pockets. I think this style is perfect for picnic, it will save some space, since you can stack them without …

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!) πŸ˜› 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) πŸ˜€ 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 …

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 Monday πŸ˜₯ 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 …

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? πŸ˜› 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 …


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 …



  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 translate πŸ˜‰ ) 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 better πŸ™‚ Here is …

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 Β πŸ™‚ (I know it will, at least for us, because our additional family member will be here next month!) Now about the recipe πŸ˜‰ 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 too πŸ˜‰ In this post, I also include the Indonesian version of the recipe. …

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 …
