Kue Pukis

I am VERY excited when I saw this recipe on Resep Keluarga Nugraha! This (and kue laba-laba) is one of my favorite snack when I was still in primary school. I think they're about Rp. 500 for 3 back then. :)

I went home from work last night at about 9:30PM. It's not too late, but it's also not too much free time left for me to make a multi-component cake that I had been wanting to do. So I browsed through Resep Keluarga Nugraha's website to look for some yummy recipe to try and I came across the recipe for Kue Pukis. At first I didn't know what Kue Pukis is, but as soon as I saw the picture, I knew what it was! I quickly glanced through the list of ingredients to make sure that I have all of them on hand. :) I don't have the right mold for it but I have this awesome half-dome one as a gift from Aunt Helen (thanks a lot, Tante Helen!). So... here they are!

I gave some that we're right out of the pan to Alvin for a test-run and he loved it! Yay! These Kue Pukis are mini two-bite sizes and I think that they are perfect snacks for the night. :p I didn't feel too guilty gobbling up 2-3 pieces of them yesterday night. I packed some for Alvin to bring to work (for him to snack on) and I packed some for my coworkers as well. :)

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but my coworkers have started to grow suspicious of anything "Indonesian" that I brought to work. They were not too crazy about the Indonesian Cheesecake, and the steamed cupcakes (bolu kukus), and the Kaastengels that I had brought to work previously for them to try. So when I told them that these were "Mini Muffins - Indonesian Style," their eyes narrowed a little. :p BUT they actually liked this one! Yay!

So, the moral of the day is: Don't give up when others don't like what you bake. Just keep on trying until they do. :p

Want to also do a little shout-out in my blog today...

Jesus loves you! If you fall, He'll pick you back up and love you still. So don't run away from Him when you mess up; run towards Him.

I ran away from Him before but I find myself in a deeper hole than I was before. So now I'm learning to run towards Him, who is slow to anger and abounding in love.

Cheers! And Happy Friday to y'all!
