  • 1/2 sdt gula pasir 1 butir biji pala (dikeprek saja) 1 1/2 sdt bumbu penyedap rasa sapi 

Cara membuatnya :
  • Siapkan air sebanyak 1 liter dalam panci, masukan potongan daging, masak hingga daging dan kacang merah empuk (dengan pressure cooker cukup 30 menit saja), setelah empuk baru masukkan bumbu halus/iris, biji pala, potongan wortel, garam, lada, gula pasir. serta bumbu penyedap rasa sapi. Masak kembali sampai matang lalu masukan potongan bawang daun.Rasakan soup, adjust rasanya dg menambahkan garam/lada/gula pasir bila kurang. Angkat, sajikan hangat.

Ontbijtkoek



Brief information about Ontbijtkoek.(source: wikipedia)

An ontbijtkoek (literally translated breakfast cake) or peperkoek is a Dutch-Belgian spiced cake. Rye is its most important ingredient, coloring the cake a light brown. It is often spiced with cloves, cinnamon, ginger, succade and nutmeg. Several parts of the Netherlands have their own local recipe, of which the most famous is "Oudewijvenkoek" (old wives' cake) which is mostly eaten in the northern regions, and is flavored with aniseed. Ontbijtkoek is originally served at breakfast with a thick layer of butter on top, as a replacement for bread. However due to its sweet taste it is also served as a snack.

And here's the recipe (in Bahasa Indonesia)
Bahan:
Telur 06kuning+03putih
gula palem 50gram
gula jawa 100gram (saya kurangin jadi 85, tergantung level manis masing2 gula yah)

mentega/margarine 100gram , lelehkan
bumbu lapis/spekoek 1sdt
TBM 1sdt
vanili bubuk/cair 1/2 sdt
Kenari cincang 100gram
Rhum 1sdt (optional..but a must for myself :) 

Cara Membuat:
  1. Kocok telur, gula, TBM, vanili sampai putih kental dan naik.
  2. Masukkan campuran terigu+bumbu lapis/spekoek, aduk rata dg spatula.
  3. Masukkan mentega/margarine leleh, aduk rata lagi dengan spatula.
  4. Masukkan 3/4 kenari cincang kedalam adonan, aduk rata lagi
  5. Tuang adonan ke dalam loyang tulban D24cm yg sudah diolesi margarin dan taburi atasnya dengan sisa kenari cincang tadi.
  6. Panggang di oven panas dengan suhu 180C selama 30-40menit atau sampai kue kuning kecoklatan/matang.
  7. Keluarkan dari oven, tunggu sampai kue agak dingin lalu keluarkan dari loyang.
  8. PS: kalo tidak ada kenari..bisa pakai kismis atau buah kering atau jenis kacang lainnya sesuai selera masing-masing.

My very traditional Marble Cake




Ingredients:
  • 300gr butter/margarine
  • 250gr powder sugar
  • 225gr multipurpose flour + 01tsp baking powder (mix well)
  • 6 egg yolks and 5 egg whites
  • 25gr cocoa powder
  • chocolate pasta;  moccacino pasta
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder/ extract vanilla 
  • 1/4 tsp salt

How to make:
  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter/ margarine, sugar and salt until light and fluffy, about 12 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until combined after each addition and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed (about 15-20 minutes, here you will get the batter more like liquid but no worry). Mix in vanilla. Add flour mixture in 2 batches (using the lowest speed or you may use your rubber spatula instead). Set aside 1/3 of the batter.
  2. In a bowl, mix cocoa and boiling water with a rubber spatula until smooth, add about 02drops chocolate pasta and 01drop of moccachino pasta. Add the cocoa mixture to the reserved cake batter; stir until well combined . Put aside.
  3. Take the 1/3 of the batter , pour in the cocoa mixture , stir until well combined.
  4. Spoon batters into the prepared pan in 2 layers, alternating spoonfuls of vanilla and chocolate to simulate a checkerboard. To create marbling, run a table knife (or wooden skewer) through the batters in a swirling motion. You will get a wonderful marbled effect.
  5. Bake for about 40minutes in 180C.
