Cempedak Butter Cake

When I told my friend that I want to make ‘Cempedak’ Cake, first reaction that I received was funny face and a very very not encouraging words. I don’t know what Cempedak called in English but it’s in jack fruit family and smaller in size. It is a seasonal fruit native to southeast Asia thus we can only have a chance to eat it once a year.  It is also much more sweeter, stickier and strong odor when it’s ripe.

And now i want to bring this humble fruit to be another level. As a CAKE. At least in our family cause I know a lot of people out there already did it.

Recipe 1: Bibimbab

Bibimbap is a signature Korean dish. It’s actually mixed rice. It is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with sautéed and seasoned vegetables and chilly paste. A raw or fried egg and sliced or mince meat are common additions. The ingredients are stirred together thoroughly just before eating. It can be served either cold or hot.
