Sharing my Sunday brunch, initially I wanted to make Korean Potato Pancakes aka Gamja Jeon, however during the frying process I forgot to flatten them up to make a thin and crisp pancake. So regardless the shape, the ingredients and the taste were delicious and finish the whole stack all by myself 😀
- 150 gr bacon, chopped finely
- 1 medium size onion, chopped finely
- 2 medium-sized potatoes, grated
- 1 red chili, thinly sliced
- 100 gr of vegetable (carrots. spring onion, leeks, etc) cut thinly
- 1/2 cup plain flour (or Korean pancake flour)
- 1 egg
- Salt and pepper to taste (if use korean pancake flour then omit the salt and pepper as they already have it combined in the flour mixture)
Method : Mix all ingredients to form thick batter and fry them on non stick pan.
Happy Sunday All
Anyone remember seeing this logo in my previous blog theme?
Well …the logo was created by Ms. SM the sister of good friend of mine, Ms. SM (both sisters share the same initial, so do not be confused).
And to share the good news, the creative lady behind this logo creation is getting engaged, thanks to the spoiler from her sis. And to celebrate the special occasion I decided to bake a special roll cake ala RCC for her.
And this is a real ala RCC because I think the nice lady deserved her very own cake not any copy from Junko’s template that anyone can replicate so I decided to draw my very own pattern copy from the roses. Do you see the resemble of the roses on the photo background with those on the cake?
Dear Sanny, congratulations on your engagement, wish you sunshine, rainbow, love, joy, happiness, bla bla bla and happily ever after.
Hiyaaaa…Rabbit is burying herself in the kitchen and doing weekend baking.
Got this nice tea cup silicon mold as early birthday gift from a friend (thank you Ms. IG for supporting my new passion of baking). Upon browsing for recipe I stumble upon a video from Ochikeron which happen to share cupcake/shortcake recipe using the same silicon teacup mold.
Details of recipe and how to, please click the above link to Ochikeron’s video.
I am still struggling with my whipped cream and can’t replicate those nice flower shape from Ochikeron 😦
Anyone joining me for afternoon tea for four?
Another Mille Crepes and this time I use chocolate sauce and whipped cream for each other layers to see if I can get a better texture.
Learning from the previous experience, this time I really let all crepes cool down to the same temperature before stacking them and also ensure my whipped cream had reach the soft peak form before I stop whipping them. And the result was better.
Also I divided the 36 crepes into 2 so I get 2 piece of 18 layers crepes instead of 1 with high stack unlike my previous Vanilla mille crepes.
And yes, since some of you had been asking for the recipe , below is the simple crepe recipe :
Serves : 36 crepes (12 cm size)
- 100 gr cake flour + 1/2 tea spoon baking powder
- 2 eggs
- 2 table spoon sugar (I prefer the crepe to be not too sweet because the cream and chocolate filling already sweet enough)
- 2 table spoon melted butter
- 250 ml milk
- few drops of vanilla essence (optional)
Shift flour and baking powder , add sugar and eggs and whisked until sugar is melted. Add half of the milk and melted butter, mix well. Shift to remove lumps and add the remaining milk and mix well. Let the batter stand in room temperature for 30 minutes.Then start to make crepe using non sticky pan.
I noticed some cake shop prefer to have browning texture on the crepe so this time I also copy the method by making some browner and crispier layer and somehow the combination of the texture did enhance the taste.
I try to make Mille Crepes (learning from Youtube), and below is the result.
It looks good and taste yummy and I spent an hour to just make the 35 crepes 🙂
The only learning point I need to improve in whipping the cream. Somehow after left them in the fridge for few hours to set, the cream kind of soaked into the crepes and left it dry (if you noted on the lower part layers compare to the upper part).
Anyone ever try making this and can share some feedback? Cheers.
Dear friends, thank you for liking my HInatmatsuri Bento, this really inspired me to create another bento with the same theme.
Today bento is another version of Hinamatsuri theme using bread and cheese.

Happy Birthday Tiek, I hope you enjoy your bento…
It’s Thursday… It’s Valentine day.
Happy Love Day to all of you.. Wish you a lovely day with beloved one.
I remember fondly my younger days, the excitement on Valentine days, the chocolate, the flowers, the cards (talking about card, do people still send Valentine card now a day? Or e-card? or email? or just text message in What’s up, BBM, YM, LINE, I wonder…?)
Now the older and wiser me do not fuss that much anymore about Valentine Day as a special love day, I believe that love have to be expressed in everything we do, every possible moment that we have, not to wait for one special day in a year. Everyday should be a Valentine day 🙂
Bento # 149 – Rabbit in love (Valentine Bento)
A full of love breakfast for myself…
This year I did not managed to make any bento with the Chinese New Year theme, so to compensate my lack of creative I decided to deconstruct the Chinese New Year cakes into bento.
The Lion’s heads were of roll cake decorated with cheese, while for the body I use marble cake (I love how the texture of the marble cake looks perfect for the lion’s body and the paws , especially the Lion at the bottom part) .
Those stripes looks cakes were Kue Lapis (aka Layered Cake) is one of the most to have cake for Chinese New Year and a quite popular cake in Indonesia. It tooks lots of time and effort to bake the cakes layer by layer.
I choose and cut the different color/darker layer of the layered cake to make the facial expression of the Lions.
Bento # 148 – Lions bento
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR ALL
Wish you a prosperous and blessed Snake Year Ahead.

I am a fan of Croquette and today I am stealing the recipe of this delicious Japanese Creamy Crab Croquette from Nami of Justonecookbook.
Please click on the above link for the recipe and the very detailed step by step photos from Nami.
All this time I experience making normal croquette from potato/ potato flour or wheat flour and they are quite easy to shape but today creamy one was a challenge because they was quite sticky and took longer time to shape, nevertheless below please find the result of mine and yes…they are really yummy….
I ate them for lunch and dinner today.
