Southern Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese frosting



To be honest this is my red velvet cake ever. I heard about this cake for a while from Cake show on TV and promise to my self that I would try making it for special occasion. But somehow I haven't got any guts until one day I saw one of  friend FB status mention about this cake and it's near my birthday..then... aha.. I got the idea to make this cake for my self a day before my birthday  hahaha... *wicked laugh* ( because I wasn't really plan to invite any friends over).

I never seen any cake recipe using heaps of vegetable oil before. So I wasn't sure and cannot imagine what the taste would be like. When I started preparing the ingredients I just realized that I didn't read the recipe carefully (bad habit Ti!) that I didn't buy any butter milk! So I have to make butter milk substitute from a cup of milk mix with 1 table spoon of squeezed lemon.

Anyway... when I measured the flour I also have to admit my self that I am sooo.. not careful to check my pantry. I thought my existing flour would be enough for the recipe but once more bummer.. I'm wrong!! I only got about 1 cup of it.  So I came up with the idea *ting* Because I have self rising flour sitting there in the pantry as well I used this for the the remaining 1 1/2 cup that  need and put less (only 1/4 tsp baking soda). And bake it on the 2 small tin for about 1 1/2 hours.
Guess what?? it's all works.. Yippeee...
To be honest I really happy to see how the cake was turned up. So vibrant Red and looks delicious!

The best part of making birthday cake was to decorate it but I don't want any fancy decorations of course!.
(I only used half  recipe of the cream cheese frosting ) With my daughter watching the whole process I could see her face that she really want to try the cake :) poor girl she have to wait until we cut it on the next day.

By the way I just wanted to say Merry Christmas & Happy New year 2011 ... Have a great time!

Bolu kukus pelangi (Bolu kukus ketawa)// Mini steamed rainbow cake

Uggghh.. I finally updated my blog again after a while. Been meaning to do that but always have many things to do. It’s weird weather going on here in Melbourne. It’s already December and summer supposedly here but what happen is very wet and cold days :(. Well I know we needed rain here.
 I guess I just have to be patient until the weather get warmer so I can plan something to do outdoor with my daughter this school holiday.  Can hardly wait..!!.

Anyhow... about this mini cake. I made it many times in the past and it’s one of my signature Indonesian dessert to bring  If I invited by friends to their place or party as well as at my place. It’s quit light and moist. Believe it or not there is no butter or margarine needed for this recipe so no need to feel guilty eating more than 2 :). Because of the shape of the cake (rising and crack in the middle) we often call them laughing cake. So If the cake isn’t laughing means failed. I made similar rainbow cake here (no laughing type/ version) and another laughing steam cake with different flavor here.

Many of you probably wondering what Ovalett/ TBM  is. Ovalett (or Ovalette) is a cake stabiliser/emulsifier used predominantly in the baking of sponge cakes or steam cakes. It gives the cakes a super fine texture. It is used to aid the beating process of egg yolks or egg whites to ensure its stiffness holds. It helps the eggs to rise rapidly and stiffly and also to remain stable therefore ensuring that eggs do not lose their voluminous texture. Ovalett ensures quick whipping properties and provides a remarkably stable batter that may be left unbaked for some hours. Ovalett produces a perfect sponge that is not too fragile, while providing excellent flavour and fresh keeping qualities.(source =

With the mould in the background

Many Indonesian cake / snack using this emulsifier. Nowadays You can find it quite easy  in Indonesian supermarket here in Melbourne. As well as the special mould for this particular steam cake. So don’t be afraid to try and make this cake ok?.  And email me if you have any questions.
One more tips from me is that you have to wrap the steamer’s lid with the cloth so that the hot water droplets from the steam is not dripping to the cake that can cause the cake wet and not” laughing”.


Bolu kukus pelangi (Bolu kukus ketawa)// Mini steamed rainbow cake


* 2 eggs
* 200 g caster sugar
* 2 tsp TBM/ Ovalett/ SP (emulsfier)
* 275 g plain flour
* pinch of salt
* 200 ml soda water (lemonade)
* Pandan paste, strawberry flavored paste ( or using food colouring is fine)

  1. In a large bowl, beat eggs, sugar, eand mulsifier  with electric beater,  until white and fluffy.
  2. Mix the flour & salt, into the eggs mixture little bit at a time,whisk it gently.
  3. Pour in the soda water, whisk again.
  4. Divide the batter among 3 bowl, add the pink colour and green colour each bowl and leave the rest without any colour.
  5. Preheat the steamer, cover the lid with a towel/ cloth.
  6. Put the cupcake paper on the mould. ( I used cut baking paper)
  7. Spoon pink, green and white on the covered mould, steam for 10- 15 minute.
Btw I also bring this cake to my daughter Kinder party with mostly Australian Mums and they amazed how beautiful (and tasty too!) this cake is :). They can't imagine how did i do it cos they never seen any cake like this before and looks unusual for the cake isn't it?? . ahh... so proud of my Indonesian food!.
Happy Holiday Everyone!!

Es Pisang Ijo // Green wrapped banana on Ice

I remember exactly when was the last time I made this dessert. Back in 2001 at my kitchen school with my classroom mate "Theresia". We were always in the same group for our cooking class and mostly cook traditional Indonesian food apart from another pastry class that we learnt about various pastries from around the world  and cake decorating.This dessert however very refreshing for tropical country like Indonesia or summer in western country. For mostly Indonesian food or dessert the more effort your doing the more better it taste.

It has been confusing weather here in Melbourne with some heavy rain and cold or very sunny hot days sometimes. I was planned to make this dessert last week because I thought it will be as hot as the past week and I was wrong. Because I already bought all the ingredients I needed  I just carried on making it yesterday when the weather is cold :(

Indonesian Steamed brownies

<span class=browkus" width="333" height="500">

Some peoples must be wondering, what is the steamed brownies? how is it taste like?. And I bet when you see these pictures you think this is just a chocolate cake.

It is brownies, but steamed! . Well for Indonesian this unique cake is not unusual, there is very famous bakery shop in Bandung west Java selling the most delicious steamed brownies.

This brownies is not like any common brownies (well of course, because it is steamed and layered :P). I mean yes it looks like layered chocolate cake rather than brownies, as well as the moisture of the brownies and the sweetness. Because we use caster sugar plus sweetened condensed milk for the middle layer. But still we don't call it chocolate cake :).

Lucky me. I still have my huge steamer so I could fit my rectangular tin special for this brownies (import from Indonesia). I got the recipe from NCC written by Mrs. Liem.
Unfortunately, I didn't make enough batter of the middle part :( Anyway there is no doubt with the taste though...

Warning: Highly addictive & High in Cholesterol

brownies-<span class=kukus" width="500" height="333">

Ny.Liem Steamed Brownies


* 6 eggs
* 225 gr caster sugar
* a pinch of Vanilla powder
* a pinch of salt
* 1 / 2 tsp emulsifier
* 125 g Flour (lsifted with cocoa powder)
* 50 gr cocoa powder
* 175 ml vegetable oil
* 100 g Dark Cooking Chocolate (melted and mixed with oil)
*75 ml sweetened condensed milk


1. Heat a steamer. Greased the tin with oil.
2. Beat eggs and sugar until half fluffy , and add the emulsifier. Beat again until fluffy.
3. Add the flour and cocoa powder mixture gradually, stirring until smooth .
4. Add a mixture of oil and DCC, stirring until smooth , set aside.
5. Divided into 3 batter in the bowl . Add sweetened condensed milk to the batter no 2 and mix well .
6.Pour the 1st batter the first batter to the tin and steam for 10 minutes, then pour in the 2nd batter and steam for another 10 minutes, then add the last batter and steam for 20 minutes or until cooked.

I usually eat them with sprinkled cheddar cheese :)

Make sure to heat the steamer and dont open the lid before 10 minutes each time
Also it's a good idea to wrap the lid with towel so the the steam is not dripping to the tin.

Laksa (Johor style)


I believe this is Malaysian dish as Johor is the third largest states in Peninsular Malaysia. got the recipe from my Indonesian magazine without saying where the recipe originally come from and I'm not really familiar with Malaysian dish.

Anyhow.. you can always substitute salmon with any fillet fish you like and adjust the chili amount. My suggestion is to use fresh chili or mixed between dry and fresh ones.
What a perfect dish for cold winter like this, warm up your body straight away from the hot and spicy combinations. However If you don't like chili at all i guess the taste will still be good. So don't be afraid to try :)

Delicious dish always need more effort to make but they are worthed. My trick is to always make more paste and freeze some of them, especially if you only cook for one or two peoples . So next time You feel like this dish again it will be ready in minutes :)

Hot Cross Buns

hot cross buns 2

My baking mood is back, yeahh...
Love it..
After i baked many things, photograph and upload on my computer then, who's gonna eat my cakes and sweets i made??, believed or not this hot cross buns i made last week and i still have the left over (getting bored having them for breakfast every morning :P ).

Yesterday i made banana Muffin, i already gave away some for my friend plus eat them as well with my hubby, today i made an attempt to bake macaroons (failed), and yummy Plum & Chocolate Clafoutis, there are lots more left over in my fridge!!. I actually gave some of the clafoutis to my next door neighbour, but still ending up with the left over.

By the way, there is a funny story on the day i finished baking my hot cross buns..
I was so exhausted that day after baking these buns, so i went to my room and lying down while Ellyn playing by herself in the family room. After a while, i heard a little foot running back and forward very quickly on the wooden floor (i thought she will go to my room as usual but not.

So i got curious and got up to find out, and there is a panic-ing little girl tried to swallow whole buns in her little mouth but couldn't, she said "Mommy, hug.. hug.." (she was looking so scared afraid that i will be so angry with her, and when her daddy coming to find out too (he was in the spare bedroom), "what happened?" he said , "she was stealing my buns from the kitchen bench" i said, she's even more panic and said "sorry, sorry, sorry daddy" and began to cry, so he just cuddling him cos he felt sorry to see her begging for an apology and cried so badly, " next time you ask mommy ok?, no stealing" he said " Ok daddy" she replied.

My poor girl.. she always feels like snacking and those buns surely was tempt her so much, i already gave her half buns before this happened cos her daddy doesn't want her to have too much, but she actually stole 1 1/2 ( the other half i threw away), all together she ate 2!

Can never forget that moment :)

Banana Muffin

banana Muffin

There are many recipe for banana muffin, and most of all using brown sugar (just like my banana bread), but this recipe called for caster sugar instead, i love the texture of this muffin, so moist and i can really taste the mashed banana.

I don't have mixed spices, so i tried to experiment making them, by mixing a pinch of ground nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice, the taste was absolutely great!. Even if you only have nutmeg and cinnamon it's just as good.

There is no better feelings than having warm muffin freshly baked from your oven for breakfast, Hmmm.. the smell, the taste are just yummy... with a glass of milk for me because still, i can't drink coffee :(

I got this recipe from my favorite baking book called : The Essential Baking Cookbook"
