I've actually tried out many different recipes this week from a Japanese Water cake to creme brulee. I was going to post about the Japaneses water cake, but it didn't quite work out as recipe translation hasn't been going too well.

However, I have an Indonesian recipe today shown to me by an Indonesian foreign exchange student who is going to my high school this year. It's called Kue Cubit, and its a basically an undercooked, gooey, sweet pancake.
In other words its amazing.

Mine were a little bit over done, actually just perfectly fully cooked, but the point is to have the gooey center.

My second batch, however, was perfect. They key is a low temp oven and keeping a good eye on the cakes, something I can't say I excel at.

Kue Cubit

Yields approx. 18 

For the Kue Cubit:
3 eggs
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk
3 Tbsp. butter, melted
a pinch of salt (if you use unsalted butter / margarine)
2 Tbsp. chocolate chips
Preheat oven 325 degrees F. Place chocolate chips in a food processor and pulse until fine. Combine all the ingredients(including the chocolate) together, and let it sit for at least 30 minutes.  Butter and flour a cupcake pan. Place 1 1/2 Tablespoons of batter into each cavity, place in oven until set, but the tops are still runny, about 10 min. Keep an eye on these, as they will become overdone quickly. Serve warm.

They are an amazing sweet little snack, and although they aren't traditionally made in a cupcake pan, the adaption works really well! It you want, sprinkle some extra chocolate shavings on top!

Until next week!
