This is one of my favourite kuih since young. My grandma used to buy it from the market. It tasted really nice i.e. soft inside and crisp outside and I can eat a few at one go. Since I do not have the actual mold for baking the kuih bahulu and can't wait to try the recipe when I spotted it at the Rasa Malaysia site, tried baking it using the mini muffin tray and it turns out great. It's what I really wish for... soft inside and crisp outside :-) Thumbs up from both hubby and daughter.
1 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup flour (sifted)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
2 tablespoons cooking oil/butter
Beat the eggs until frothy and then add sugar. Continue to beat until the sugar is well dissolved and the mixture becomes sticky. Add in the vanilla essence and fold in the flour gradually and then add in the cooking oil. Continue to beat the batter until well-blended. Grease the kuih bahulu moulds and fill up to the surface level.Bake in preheated oven at 375 degree for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove bahulu from the moulds and cool on wire racks.
