    Smoked Salmon Flammkuchen

    Flammkuchen (OR Flammekueche) is not well-known in Australia. Do you know it? I am a big fan of Flammkuchen. Probably I like it more than Italian Pizza and I make it often. I heard that there are some regional variations, but most commonly Sour Cream is used. It’s surprisingly easy to make and it is …

    Poppy Seed Twisted Bread

    When I started searching for Ukrainian foods, it was in March, one of the first discoveries was Poppy Seeds Roll. It was a thick log of bread that was rolled with black Poppy Seed Paste. I was curious and I wanted to taste it, but I didn’t know where I could find the Poppy Seed …

    Savoury ‘Aonori’ Doughnuts

    I recently discovered that people in southern Italy make deep-fried dough mixed with seaweed. It looks like Japan’s ‘Isobe-age’ Tempura, that is made with the batter mixed with ‘Aonori’ (Dried Green Laver Flakes). I tried to make Savoury Doughnuts using ‘Aonori’ and it was delicious. I added 1 tablespoon ‘Aonori’ today, and the flavour was …

    Easter ‘Pampushky’

    ‘Pampushky’ are Ukrainian Bread Rolls. They can be savoury OR sweet, and baked OR deep-fried. As the ‘Jam Filled ‘Pampushky’ that I made the other day were so good, today I used the same dough to make these Easter ‘Pampushky’.

    Jam Filled ‘Pampushky’

    ‘Pampushky’, the Ukrainian Bread Rolls, can be baked OR deep-fried. ‘Pampushky’ can be sweet, and sweet ‘Pampushky’ are often deep-fried and filled with Fruit Jam. Today I baked these sweet ‘Pampushky’. It’s very difficult to wrap ordinary Jam with bread dough. The easiest way is filling Jam after ‘Pampushky’ are baked. Makes 10 to 12 …

    ‘Mlyntsi’ Ukrainian Thin Pancakes

    Many counties have their own traditional thin Pancakes. France’s Crepes are probably the most famous ones. Ukraine’s thin Pancakes are called ‘Mlyntsi’. Similar to France’s Crepes, ‘Mlyntsi’ can be sweet or savoury. I tried a few recipes that I found on the internet, but most of them require too much Salt. I reduced the amount …

    Edamame Flammkuchen

    I am a big fan of Flammkuchen (OR Flammekueche), that is sometimes called ‘German Pizza’. Just like ‘Italian Pizza’, toppings can be anything. Today I used Edamame Beans (Young Soy Beans). In Melbourne where I live, Frozen Edamame Beans are widely available even from ordinary supermarket stores. This is a Vegetarian version of Flammkuchen and …

    Vegan Nikuman (Soy Protein Buns)

    My daughter asked me to make a Vegetarian version of Nikuman (Steamed Pork Buns). I challenged myself to make a Vegan version using Soy Protein. These buns are delicious, and even my meat-loving husband enjoyed them. You can find very reasonably priced Dry Soy Protein products at many Asian grocery stores. Supermarkets sell them, too. …

    Pumpkin Bread

    This is another good way to use up your leftover Cooked Pumpkin. This bread doesn’t taste like Pumpkin, but it has the beautiful yellow colour and also the nutrients of the vegetable. The dough can be very soft and sticky. This is my favourite type of bread dough. Do not try to knead it if …
