    100% Oats Bread

    I wanted to make 100% Oats Bread and I looked for recipes. There are not many recipes for Oats Bread that can be made without Wheat Flour. I tried a recipe but it was a very dodgy one and the dough turned like clay. That failure inspired me to make my own recipe for 100% …

  • Pizza & Flammkuchen

    Apple & Cinnamon Flammkuchen

    I rarely make Pizza at home, but I make Flammkuchen very often. Flammkuchen is not well known in Melbourne where I live. It’s a pity people don’t know about it. Flammkuchen is sometimes called ‘German Pizza’ and it is quite easy to make at home. Toppings can be anything. Today I made slightly sweet one …

    Azuki Scones

    I have made all sorts of Scones in my life. I often add Fruit, Chocolate, Nuts and Seeds, Pumpkin, Banana, Coffee, Earl Grey Tea, Matcha, and etc. Why have I never ever thought of adding ‘Tsubu-an’ (Sweet Azuki Paste)? Today I had some leftover ‘Tsubu-an’. I was planning to use it for a cake, then …

    Carrot & Pineapple Doughnuts

    I used to make these doughnuts with finely grated Carrot only. One day I added some leftover canned crushed Pineapple, which I always add to ‘My Legendary Carrot Cake’, the flavour was improved and I liked it very much. Then I started adding Pineapple. Carrot only version is also very nice. If you use just …

    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’. They are almost same as Hot Cross Buns, but the texture is similar to Doughnuts. …

    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 …

    Ukrainian Dumplings with Bacon & Mushrooms

    I often cook similar dishes using Gnocchi. ‘Gnocchi & Mushrooms In Butter Soy Sauce’ is my favourite. However, Gnocchi is not so quick & easy to make as Boiled Potatoes are the main ingredient. These Ukrainian Dumplings have harder texture than Gnocchi as they are made without Potato, and Dumplings are much easier and quicker …

    ‘Chebureki’ Deep-fried Meat Stuffed Pastry

    I heard Ukrainian people’s favourite street food is ‘Chebureki’, Deep-fried Meat Stuffed Pastry. They say any minced Meat can be used. As I heard that Pork is very popular in Ukraine, I decided to use Pork Mince today, though I though Lamb Mince would be really yummy. Anyway, I tried to make everything simple. I …
