Honey Joys

As i promised before i finally have a chance to write down this recipe, I'm pretty sure this sweet always been Australian favorite party snack, almost everywhere i went for the party i saw this. Not only kids like them but the adults too! including me :)

I's quite simple and very few ingredients, but always keep in mind that the mixture is very hot when you put them on the patty cases or ice cream cone like mine.

I'm apologize for blurry picture because i forgot to take this picture alone, so i just cropped them from one my food pictures collection.

So all you need is 90g Margarine (i used unsalted butter), 1/3 cup sugar, 1 tbsp honey, 4 cups cornflakes, patty cases ( i used ice cream cone).

Honey Jys

Method: Preheat oven to 250 Degrees C. Melt margarine, sugar & Honey.
Add corn flakes & mix well . Spoon into paper patty cases or ice cream cone.
Bake in slow oven for 10 minutes. Allow to cool.
Makes 20 (approx)

Bubur Ayam Kuah Kuning // Chicken Porridge in Yellow Broth

bubur ayam 2

Hay.. hay...
My favorite breakfast back when i liven in Indonesia, apart from fried rice is this Chicken porridge in Yellow broth, the Men usually sell them in the traditional vendor, by walking from one to the other place/ village.

There are few different version of Chicken porridge, mostly people make it without yellow broth, which is similar to the original version from Chinese cuisine. For me i will do whatever it takes to satisfied my food craving :) I will make my favorite food from scratch to get the perfect taste i desire.

In western country, this dish would be suitable for cold weather, just like soup. A bit complicated but worth to try.

Recipe taken from Rurie's blog with a little revised by Me.

Lodho Ayam (Tulung Agung)

Lodho Ayam


Sorry, but this time i will post the recipe in Indonesian language friends...


Bangga deh dengan masakan Indonesia yang beragam, walaupun bahan bakunya ayam, tapi ada banyak sekali resep berbeda (bahkan satu pulau bisa mempunyai aneka macam resep ayam).

Hidup di negeri orang itu bagiku banyak sekali enaknya perjuangannya, apalagi kalo lagi kangen sama masakan Indonesia, harus berjuang sendiri di dapur untuk menghasilkan makanan yang diinginkan, dan sesuai dengan lidah kita.

Walaupun sudah banyak restaurant Indonesia disini, tapi tetap aja, menu mereka ngak selengkap di Indo, yang mereka sajikan ya itu- itu aja (yang ada di menu list), se- sekali ok lah, tapi kan lama-lama bosen juga dong.

Dengan berbagai keterbatasan bahan, kadang-kadang kita harus pinter-pinter cari bahan pengganti yang mirip, (tapi biasanya sih kalo buat bumbu-bumbu udah mulai gampang di dapatkan di sini, banyak toko-toko Asia, bahkan Indonesia), tapi yang paling penting adalah melestarikan kuliner Indonesia, ya ngak??, bahkan saya selalu kasih resep Indonesia ke teman-teman bule disini (sebagian dari mereka tertarik untuk coba-coba masakan indonesia).

Sambil ngetik, sambil nahan air liur nihh... hehe.

Ini dia resepnya, dapat dari Tabloid Nova.


1 Ekor ayam, belah dadanya tidak putus, tekan melebar (i cut into 8 pieces)
750 ml santan dari 1 btr kelapa (i used Kara instant coconut milk)
20 buah cabai rawit merah utuh
5 lembar daun salam
3 tangkai sereh, memarkan
5 lembar daun jeruk
1 sdt garam
3 sdm minyak untuk menumis
arang untuk membakar (i used grill oven)


6 bawang putih
4 siung bawang merah
5 kemiri
1 sdt ketumbar bubuk
1/2 sdt jinten bubuk


Nasi gurih dan urap I skip this

Cara membuat:

1. Tumis bumbu halus sampai harum, tuang santan, aduk hingga beruap.
2. Masukkan ayam, kecilkan api, masak hingga matang. Angkat, lalu sisihkan kuah kentalnya, bakar ayam diatas bara api hingga harum (atau grill sambai kecoklatan).
3. Masukkan cabai rawit ke dalam kuah santan sisa rebusan, masak lagi sambil diaduk hingga matang.
4. Siapkan nasi gurih, sajikan ayam bakar dengan urap.

175 gr terigu // plain flour
25 gr maizena // cornstarch
1 sdm(tbsp)coklat bubuk/pasta coklat/pasta pandan/pasta strawberry // chocolate powder


1. Putih telur + SP dikocok sampai mengembang. // Beat the white eggs and emulsifier until foamy.
2. Masukkan gula pasir sedikit2 sambil terus dikocok. // Add sugar gradually, keep beating.
3. Masukkan terigu sedikit2 sambil diaduk rata. // Add flour and mix with spoon or spatula.
4. masukkan blue band yg sudah dicairkan, aduk rata. // Add melted butter, keep mixing until smooth.
5. bagi adonan menjadi 2, ½ bagian beri pasta coklat sisanya biarkan putih. // Divided batter into 2 bowl, add 1 bowl with the chocolate powder, mix well.
6. Tuang adonan putih sedikit, lalu tuang adonan coklat. Tuang lagi adonan putih, lalu adonan coklat. Begitu seterusnya sampai adonan habis. // Pour white a spoon full of batter into the greased tin, then add the chocolate batter, do it in order until finish.

Kenapa ya makin kesini, makin malas upload blog, apalagi sekarang addicted bener sama yang namanya facebook, walaupun udah ngak remaja lagi tapi kan perlu juga, kadang bisa ketemu sama teman yang udah lama ngak ketemu, atau berkomunikasi dengan teman2 di berbagai penjuru dunia.

Mungkin juga karena efek summer yang maunya bikin outdoor activity (kecuali kalo sampe panasnya diatas 35 derajat), mau masak juga males, karena ruangan jadi tambah panas, jadinya bikin yang simple dan seger-seger aja deh.
