Matcha Hurricane Swiss Roll Recipe (抹茶飓风瑞士卷)
Hurricane Swiss Roll is essentially a swiss roll that swirls layer that looks like a hurricane and hence the name. It is very popular in Indonesia, and when I first heard from my mum about it (who saw many beautiful pictures from her Indonesian relatives), I told myself that I am going to recreate these beautiful swirls. Luckily, it was fairly simple! For this recipe, I am pairing up the flavour of Matcha and Cream Cheese as it goes so well together. The bitterness of the Matcha powder complements the tanginess of the Cream Cheese, making it light and refreshing. Feel free to change the flavour profile to your liking.…
Last week, I shared my experience at Lapis Lapis in Jakarta with my good friend, Titan. If you haven’t seen the video make sure to check it out here! So for today, I am sharing my take on Lapis Surabaya. I got this recipe from my mum’s old notebook and made some modifications to suit the size of my pan. As I don’t fancy making a whole cake because I can’t finish, I made my Kueh Lapis in a loaf pan instead. If you want to make a large 7-inch square cake, just double the recipe will do.

Martabak Manis (Indo Thick Pancake)

If you have had been to Indonesia, I’m sure you have tried this. But if you have yet to, do not fair! Make yourself one! They are so easy to make. Instead of just peanuts and sugar, they used a mixture of butter, chocolate, chopped peanuts and cheddar cheese. ‘Keju’ is what they named their cheese. I just like the word ‘Keju, keju’, so cute.
Indonesian-Style Avocado Milkshake
I love avocado. Avocado helps to lower bad helps lower bad cholesterol, and is also high in vitamin B which fights off diseases and good for your skin. To me, Indonesian Avocado Milkshake is like my childhood favorite drink. My mum was born in Indonesia as a Chinese- Indonesian. She was later married to my dad, who is a Singaporean and eventually moved to Singapore. Often when I travel to Indonesia to visit my relatives, the first thing I would order in any restaurant or eatery is Avocado Milkshake. It’s thick, creamy and full of goodness.
