Yesterday ... i made more cheese n pizza rolls. again i made the mistake of putting salt when using bread mix, so as i didn't want to throw out the dough - i made a second batch with plain flour and no salt, then combined the 2 lots. everything turned out ok in the end.

TIP: I found the rolls grew too high n i prefer them to be flatter so i can put more topping on top - so what i did was push the buns down n put extra topping before putting them into the oven.

Also, I have (finally) typed in the recipe for the sponge cake - which is my favourite. Tried many different recipes but this one is the best one.

mamafami: i now realised that i got the cheese buns recipe from your pages. thank you. this is now one of the most popular food at my house. my son said they're better than the shop bought ones (n he loves the shop ones!!!!)

Best karipap ever!!!

Best karipap
last night, i made karipap. they were the best i ever made. The filling was just right and the pastry ... was perfect. i think it's cos i used butter (and enough of it) instead of margerine. and of course .... they were very laris? n gone before the end of the night - usually ...... we have left over for next day. everyone (including myself) just can't stop eating n eating.

mamafami: thank you for being the 1st official non-family visitor to my page. I visited your pages all the time and have copied sooo many recipes .... but have not cooked many hehehe. No rolling pin? oh mamafami - you still can make karipap. use small pieces of dough and just flatten with finger or .... do what i did like when i was growing up at kampung (no rolling pin then) ... use a bottle

zana: thank's for the tip sis .... no karipap for 1 week?? to me that's nothing .... i don't make for months at times, eventhough it's very popular at my house. so ... u use sweet potatoes? i've never tried that - i do have some now maybe ... i'll do that soon.

Seven seas casserole ..... ?? I'm gonna call it tuna casserole

Seven seas casserole
Today, i finally made this tuna dish. i remember eating it when i first arrive in australia - i was lonely with nowhere to go on a long weekend so a girl from work invited me to her home in the country area (far away from city). she lived on a very large farm and i had a great time there. for dinner one night her mother made this tuna/rice dish and i loved it, but have not been able to find a recipe for it unitl last week, there it was .... in a weekly magazine. But i made a mistake and bought cream of mushroom soup - should be celery. anyway .... it tasted very nice. I also didn't have any frozen peas ......

After 33 years if waiting, i finally got to eat this dish again .... and am now satisfied.


1 410g can cream of celery soup (i used mushroom)
11/4 cup milk
1 tsp lemon juice (i used 1/2 lemon)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 tsp salt
pinch of pepper
11/3 cup cooked rice
1 425g can tuna or salmon - mashed
11/2 cup frozen peas
cheese slices
red paprika powder
lemon slices to serve

1. preheat oven to 180 C and grease a casserole dish
2. mix together soup, milk, lemon juice, onion, salt n pepper in saucepan. stir over medium heat unitl just boiling, then remove from heat. Pour half into casserole dish .
3. add cooked rice, mashed tuna, and peas in layers until all are used. puor remiander of soup mixture over the top. cover wiith cheese slices and sprinkle with paprika. cover with lid ot foil.
4. cook in moderate oven for about 15 minutes. remove lid, cook for another 10 minutes ot until cheese begins to turn lightly brown. Casserole will firm on standing. allow about 15-20 minutes.
5. serve topped with lemon slices.

Zana ... ya lah ... everytime i found recipe that sounded like it ... but they weren't the same. Next time i'm gonna try make it with pasta, instead of rice, i think it'll be good too.

Anton's 20th Birthday

Coffee Gateau
Today, Anton ... my baby is 20 yo. I can't believe how fast time flies. Not very long ago he was only a small boy - and now he is very tall, 170 cm to be exact. We didn't do anything special this year but definitely will next year. I did bake a cake to mark the occasion. A coffee gateau - basically a sponge cake with coffee mock cream filling. Very tasty. I'm hopeless at decorating so i just gtared some chocolate over the top. Look not so nice but taste .... very yummy.

My Best Sponge Recipe
3 eggs
1/2 cup castor sugar
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup cornflour
1/4 cup self-raising flour
1 tbsp boiling water
2 tbsp butter - melted

1. set oven to 190C. grease 20cm deep round pan.
2. beat eggs with electric mixer for at least 7 minutes until thick n creamy. gradually add sugar, beat for 3-5 minutes until all sugar has dissolved (inadequate beating at this time will result in a disasterous sponge).
3. Sift combined flours over egg mixture, carefully fold in (do not beat).
4. Fold in combined water and butter (do not beat)
5. Pour mixture into pan, tilt pan to distribute evenly.
6. Bake in middle of preheated oven for about 30 minutes - top should feel springy.
7. turn onto wire rack to cool.
8. split in half and fill with your favourite filling - such as jam and whipped cream.

Cheese Rolls
Pizza rolls
Seri muka
I made this recipe and it turned out very well. the buns are light and very tasty. I found this recipe at fotopages but ... i can't remember who it belongs to ... sorry ..... actually i made a mistake. i made dough 1st time with salt ..... it was very salty, cos i forgot that bread mix already has salt inside - so i ended up throwing it out. but 2nd time all was well.


Ingredients :

300g high protein flour (I used white bread mix)
1 teaspoon bread improver ~ optional (i use this)
1 tablespoon castor sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt (i didn't use cos bread mix already have salt)
50g egg (1 egg)
7g (2 teaspoons) instant dried yeast
70 - 75 ml fresh milk (chilled)
70ml water (i used warm water)
25g margarine ~ melted

1 teaspoon fresh milk
1 cup grated cheddar (tasty) cheese

Method :

I have bread maker so I let the machine do the hard work. I use regular cycle, take dough out after it finished mixing n let it rise in oven (warmed but turned off).

1. Mix flour, bread improver, yeast, salt and sugar in a big bowl.
2. Make a hole in the centre and pour milk, water and egg. Mix well to form a soft dough.
3. Add in margarine and knead for 30 minutes or till dough is smooth and elastic and does not stick to the bowl.
4. Make into a big ball and place it in a bowl greased with a bit of oil. Cover using a cling film.
5. Place the bowl at a warm place and let dough prove for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or till dough has doubled it's size.
6. Punch down the dough, and divide into 7 equal pieces. (I divide into 12 pieces for smaller rolls)
7. Arrange them in a well greased 9 inch tray and cover with cling film.
8. Leave to prove again till double the size.
9. Brush the buns with fresh milk and sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese.
10. Bake in a preheated oven at 170 celcius for about 15 - 20 minutes or till golden brown.

Enjoy your rolls .....!!!

Made this recipe again tonight and instead just cheese topping, I also made pizza ones. Very very tasty.

Pizza topping:

Pasta sauce
salami - sliced
sweet chillies - sliced
mushrooms - sliced
ilives - chopped (I like calamata olives)
mozarella cheese

Tonight I just used tasty cheese cos I don't have mozarella cheese at home.

I also made seri muka using Zana's recipe, but I don't think mine turned out very well - cos I used coconut powder for the santan, it floated at the top and didn't set properly. But taste is good.
