Kuih Bahulu or Kuih Baulu is the same cake just different pronunciation.This cake is almost similar with Madeleines .Both these cake needs their special mould to bake .Kuih bahulu is usually baked during the festive seasons such as Hari Raya or Chinese New Year. These sweet and eggy kuih go very well with coffee, and are always a crowd-pleaser during the festive seasons.Last year I bought 2 bahulu moulds when I was in Kuala Lumpur visiting my family. So far I don't have the motivation to try to bake this cake until I saw one of my favourite blogger, Mat Gebu recipe at his blog. Mat Gebu is a very talented baker and cook.I 'm impressed with his food-photography and cooking.If you can't understand Bahasa Malaysia ,just refer to Google Language Tool.Thank you ,you Mat for sharing your wonderful recipe:)
