KBB#9: Classic Puff Pastry

puff pastry1

My very first time homemade puff pastry :)). This time KBB (Indonesian Baking Club) challenge to make puff pastry really make me worry because I´m not sure I can do it. Why? I love puff pastry but I used to buy ready to use puff pastry and the important things: quick, easy and I can get delicious snacks. See my older posts using puff pastry: Blätterteig Tuna/Tuna puff pastry, Pisang molen (Banana puff pastry), Choco Pudding in horns, zwiebelkuchen/Onion Pie.

Finally, I did it. I´m sooooo h
appy. It must be treated carefully, patience and of course..time consuming. Will I make it again in the future? Hmm.... I still prefer to buy ready to use puff pastry than make by my own. At least, I have completed the challenge successfully.

My Savoury muffins vs Veggie Fritters

Veggie Fritters
Actually, I want to make savoury muffins with similar recipe for veggie fritters or we call it Bala-Bala/Bakwan Sayur. The Idea is to bake something more healthy than deep fry snacks. I´m quite suprised with the result. My son tried one bite and he said the taste is weird, don´t make it again! So, back to normally I do, just deep fry it instead of baking, though it´s healthier. My entry for EFM (Event for Month) with theme Savouries arranged by SriLekha of Srishkitchen. So, how about you?. Which one do you choose? Savoury muffins or veggie fritters version.

Choco-Sour Cream Muffins

choco-sour cream muffins

End of the year 2008, I planed to make spiegeleikuchen. All of ingredients had been bought including sour cream. It was kept in the refrigerator until a new year and I realized the sour cream almost reaches its expired date. Before it´s too late, I bake muffins instead of spiegeleikuchen (too lazy to make it)

When my oldest son saw Kue Lumpur at Ayin of AG´s Food, he begged me to make it. I just made slightly modification by using kartoffelpüree/mashed potato powder and substitute amount of coconut milk with milk. Ayin, thank you for sharing the recipe.
