Kuih Bahulu is a traditional Malaysian egg cake. They are dainty, sweet, eggy and must-have for festive seasons. Easy and fail-proof Kuih Bahulu recipe for home bakers.
Kuih Bahulu is a traditional Malaysian kuih or local sweet cake.
A favorite among many Malaysians of all races and ages, kuih bahulu is usually baked during the festive seasons of Muslim Hari Raya and Chinese New Year.
These sweet and eggy cakes go well with coffee. They are always a crowd-pleaser during the festive seasons.
A few kuih bahulu and a cup of coffee is a surefire way to greet your guests during festivities.
While French Madeleines are hugely popular, I have to say that Malaysian Kuih Bahulu is equally pleasing.
Kuih Bahulu comes in different shapes, but the popular ones are flower shaped. They are made using a traditional mold.
The mold comes in different sizes: big and small.
I used the small flower mold because they are dainty and beautiful.
As the sweet aroma filled the air, a flood of fond memories were racing through my mind.
I recall many baking sessions with my grandmother, mother and aunt, who had passed away.
As we were busy baking the sweet treats, our anticipation of Chinese New Year and the warm thoughts of our family reunion dinner brought much joy into our home kitchen.

Traditional Kuih Bahulu recipe doesn’t call for cooking oil or butter, but I find them too dry. Adding the cooking oil or butter makes them come off the mold easily.
