Mushroom-Shaped Bread

Morning ^^ Two weeks left until 2017. And this blog will reborn. Yay! Just a short post today. I want to share the latest trend (again) in Indonesia. This time is mushroom shaped bread. It supposed to look like shiitake mushroom. I’m not sure I did a good job or not here though. For the buns I used the recipe from here and for the top it’s only 5 tsp rice flour, 5 tsp cocoa powder, 5 tbsp water. Mix everything together and brush it on to the buns before the second proofing (after you shaped them into a ball). For the filling I’m just filling them with some chocolate, you can also make it plain if you want.   Until next time ^^


Thick Crust Pizza

Just a short post today. I’m sure most of you know how to make pizza already. I have a few recipes in this blog too. But I think I always make them with thin crust. So this time I’m sharing a thick crust one. Actually this type of pizza is more common in Indonesia compare to thin crust. I think one of my high school friend who owns a bakery now ever told me that he tried to sell thin crust pizza (yes, bakery sells mini pizza like this with only sausage and ketchup or something as the toppings, I’m not sure) and the customers were like “what happened to the bread? why is it so thin?” πŸ˜€ and since then he never sells thin crust pizza anymore. Maybe it’s my Asian tongue or I don’t know but I prefers thick crust too. And after looking at some thick crust pizza sold by some of my friends (some of my high school friends have their own business now), I felt like making one too. So …


Bagelen (Sweet Dried Bread)

Good Morning ^^ I’m sharing another snack that I like. I know, I like snacking. A lot. Sigh. But before we go to the recipe, I want to announce something first. I’ve been thinking for a while about this, and I think I will start writing this blog in Bahasa Indonesia instead of English. Starting from next year. Simply because sometimes Indonesian jokes aren’t that funny when I’m trying to translate them in English. And also so I can enjoy writing in this blog more. But don’t worry, I will still make the recipe card in English too. Because when I started this blog, my purpose was to introduce Indonesian foods to non Indonesian people. So I will still continue to do so. Maybe in some countries Indonesian foods are famous, but in most countries not so much. At least not as big as Chinese, Japanese, Indian and now Korean. It makes me sad a little bit, because Indonesia is a big country too and we have soooooo many delicious foods. And depending on which …


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 …


Cinnamon Buns Day

Hi, Everyone! I’ve been away for a while again. But if you’re following my instagram, you know I’m still making stuffs, I just don’t post them here. I just want to stop by here to make a quick post and of course to say hi to all of you. TodayΒ Sweden celebratingΒ Cinnamon buns day. Cinnamon buns (Kanelbullar) are kind a big deal here. You can buy it anywhere really but I don’t like like store bought ones, the main reason is it contains cardamom seeds in it. I don’t hate cardamom, I just prefer my bread without them. I’ve shared the recipe here long long time ago. I just shaped them differently this time. And also, I took the photos for this post with my phone. I’m sorry for the bad quality. Was too lazy to set up the flash and other things because it was very late already. Well, anyway I have to get back at my daily duty here. My family has been sick (we’re taking turns) and the house chores are piling up. …

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 …


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 …


Broccoli Crust Pizza

Hi hi… Wow, I can’t believe I’ve been gone for so long. Been more than 3 months since my last post. If you didn’t know yet, I’ve just had another baby girl back in February. And ever since she’s my first priority, the rest can wait. Well, more like because I’m awake most of the nights (I’m a light sleeper and often can’t go back to sleep right away after feeding session) and that cause me to feel tired constantly and my days just feel shorter. Don’t talk about baking and trying out new recipes, I don’t even have enough energy or mood to make dinner everyday. We definitely eat take away or ready food a lot since I was pregnant last year. Not fun at all. Expensive and unhealthy. It doesn’t stop there. Even if I did try new recipes, took photos, edited and ready to be posted. It still take me ages to be able to really sit and write. Psst, as an exception, I’m writing this at 4 in the morning after …

baked churros

Baked Churros

  Before we talk about the recipe. I want to share a happy news from our family. Our new family member finally here. And it’s a girl! She was born last week. Everything happened very quick. Woke up from sudden stomach ache at around 21.30, went to hospital by ambulance and half an hour later she was born. That quick. Although I gave birth by my self (husband has to take care of our oldest daughter until his mum comes from another town), but thankfully everything went well. And by lunch we already back home again. So I’m guessing it’ll be even more quiet here. But I have more energy now and feel a lot lighter, the only thing that will keep me away from the blog is my new girl. I just want to cuddle and snuggle with her. You understand that right? πŸ˜‰ Okay, now we’re back to the recipe. I’ve made churros before here. It turned out well and tasty but I had to change the recipe a little a bit. And …
