    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 …

    Cherry Varenyky

    According to the ‘Cherry Varenyky’ recipes I found, I should use fresh Cherries. Cherry season in Melbourne is December. It’s March now. I couldn’t wait that long and I decided to use Frozen Cherries. It’s challenging to make ‘Cherry Varenyky’ using Frozen Cherries OR Canned Cherries, but it can be done. The juice that comes …

    ‘Pampushky’ Ukrainian Bread Rolls

    What a cute name ‘Pampushky’ is for these Ukrainian bread rolls! The singular form is ‘Pampushka’ and that sounds even cuter. ‘Pampushky’ have similar texture to Doughnuts, and they can be baked or fried. The world famous Ukrainian Soup ‘Borscht’ is often served with ‘Pampushky’ with ‘Garlic & Dill Oil’. If you like Garlic Bread …

    Lorna’s Butter-less Scones

    My husband’s Great-Auntie Lorna gave me har Scone recipe nearly 30 years ago. It was a very simple one. Following her instructions, I have never failed to make high risen Scones ever since. Recently I have discovered another Lorna’s Scone recipe, that requires No Butter at all. Can Scones be made without Butter? I tried …

    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 …
