So far, there are 'only' five selected recipes that sticked on my kitchen shelfs. The popular Fudge Brownies recipe, my son's favorite 'Curly Bread' recipe, the all time favorite 'Peuyeum Cake' recipe, the traditional snack 'Colenak' recipe and my husband and daughter's favorite 'Ontbijtkoek' recipe. I didn't write the whole recipe on those small papers but only the ingredients connected by some arrows to explain where the ingredients have to be mixed to.
You know, I posted this 'oldies cake' recipe last year when we still lived in Mumbai. I tried the recipe from my favorite 'traditional Indonesian snack recipe book'.
After back to our home country, I got another Ontbijtkoek recipe from my auntie, who regularly bakes this cake. Soon this recipe became our favorite one. The cake is softer and not too dry like before, because it uses 'a little' melted butter.
The original ontbijtkoek recipe uses 'kenari' (~javanese almond/canarium commune) on the top, but the ontbijtkoek from our oven uses chocolate chips (to obey my children's request) and also any kind of peanuts that I can find in my kitchen.
Using one recipe, I can produce 2 loaves of Ontbijtkoek in one go.
Sift together 1 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 tsp vanilla powder, 1 tsp ground cinnamon and pinch of ground gloves and nutmeg. Set aside.
Beat 5 eggs, 1/2 cup sugar and 1 cup palm sugar until thick and frothing.
Add the sifted ingredients and 2 tbs melted margarine, stir well.
Pour into a loaf baking pan lined with grease-proof paper that has been brushed with butter and sprinkled with flour.
Sprinkle with kenari or peanuts or chocolate chips.
Bake at 180 C for about 40-45 minutes until done.
*spread margarine on top of the cake, right after it comes out from the oven.
