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 πŸ™‚


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 …


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. Β 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 πŸ˜€ 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,Β easy banana dessert, banoffee, cakeΒ and …

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 …

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 …

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 …
