Apem Oreo, Si Hitam Manis Yang Menggoda

Fusion! When an Indonesian traditional snack recipe meets one of the most famous American cookies! Please welcome these sweet-savory, moist and fluffy Apem Oreo (Steam-baked Oreo Rice Flour Bun).

I didn't really plan to make them but since my toddler nephew grabbed the "wrong" oreos and didn't like the cream flavor, so I had to do something with the "unwanted" oreos.

I've shared apem recipe before and this one is actually just slightly different from that one because I added crushed coconut flavored oreos and a little bit of baking powder in the batter (the result was unexpectedly yummier).

  1. Saya mau tanya, bagaimana supaya hasilnya bisa mulus seperti di gambar, bagian kelopak mawarnya gak berlubang-lubang? Beberapa kali mencoba membuatnya, selalu berlubang..
