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?” 😀 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 …

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 🙂

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 😀 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 ^^  

Green Egg Noodle

Morning morning ^^ We had snow yesterday, but it didn’t last very long since the temperature isn’t cold enough yet. Very wet. It was like autumn the day before yesterday and in a night turned into winter. Kind of crazy. Lately I’ve been obsessed with homemade noodle, especially when I’m making mie ayam, I still haven’t found the prefect store-bought noodle for it yet. And for me personally mie ayam is all about the noodle (the chicken too of course) but if it has a good noodle even with just a simple chicken with soy sauce will do. It was a lot of work before, when I didn’t have the pasta maker yet. I had to roll the dough with rolling pin (wasn’t an easy job to get the dough as thin as I want) but since I bought the pasta maker, making noodle is so easy and quick (just a bit messy, still :P). You can see my hand cut noodle here and purple noodle here. I use the recipe from this Indonesian blog, …

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 🙂 Back to the pie pockets. I think this style is perfect for picnic, it will save some space, since you can stack them without …

Havrebollar (Chokladbollar)

Havrebollar or Chokladbollar is one of Swedish classic sweets. I usually prefer the name Havrebollar since it means oat balls, not exactly chocolate balls.  And these balls main ingredient is rolled oat. This sweet also one the most requested food from my husband and he doesn’t request for a specific food or sweet that often. I could probably count how many times he asked me to make something for him ever since we were married over 7 years ago. It is now one of my to go sweet for husband since it doesn’t require oven or big machine. Very quick to make too. But I always at least double the recipe, sometimes triple it. They’re gone pretty quick if I just make 1 recipe 😀 I’m using pearl sugar to cover the balls here, but it might be difficult to find if you don’t live in Scandinavian countries. You can use coconut flakes instead (store bought havrebollar usually use coconut flakes too). I supposed you could add some chopped nuts in it too if you …

Pisang Molen (Just Another Banana Fritters)

As a tropical country, Indonesia (just like other tropical countries) has a lot of different snacks made from banana. But mostly either for snack or dessert. And today I’m going to share of one my favourite (from many) banana snacks. I’m not really sure how to translate this snack in English though. That’s why I just write “just another banana fritters” because it is banana fritter just different style. The dough is very crispy even when it’s cold already. As long as you don’t keep them in the fridge. Because then it will be soggy. Actually one of my goal for this blog is to share with all of you some of my favourite banana snacks. But Indonesian these days are very creative, they keep making something new I can’t keep up. Everytime I’m in Indonesia for holiday there are always something new to try. Very creative people, I envy them. For this recipe I took it from this blog here. And some of other banana recipes I’ve made before: turnover-ish, easy banana dessert, banoffee, cake and …

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. Today Sweden celebrating 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. …
