Kuih Bahulu / Kuih Baulu

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:)


5 large eggs

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 cup all purpose flour

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

1/4 cup cooking oil for brushing


1:Preheat oven at 400 F .Lightly grease the bahulu moulds with cooking oil and place them in a preheated oven .Sifted flour and baking powder in a bowl,set aside.

2:Meanwhile beat eggs with sugar at high speed until frothy.The mixture must be creamy and fluffy.Add in vanilla essence.Then reduce the speed before add in flour mixture little by little.Mix well.

3:Scoop batter into the moulds using tablespoon,about 3/4 full of the mould.Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.(Again depend on your oven temperature.

4:Remove mould from oven,use bamboo stick to remove the cake from the mould.

5:Serve warm or let's it cool completely before store in air tight container.

food 4 tots:
thank you, thank you*blushing*

thank you:)

dip into Milo?hmmm must try tommorow with Milo and see!

oh yes.I saw aunties auntie at village still use charcoal to make this..I think if I use charcoal to make it's all turn up to be chracoal!lol!

thank you but I see others who make this kuih have better cute mould..The texture inside is fine and dry .I think bahulu cake is dry,right since it's don't have butter or oil mixture,right?.I bought some at Tesco when I shopped there,it's also dry so i guess this kuih must be dry..

thank you ,I love the mould too:)

I think old time aunties cook this cake over charcoal...But I don't dare,I dunno how to control the fire..Oven method is safer for me:)
