How To Make Kuih Bahulu
Kuih Bahulu is another popular Chinese Lunar New Year treats. Traditionally, they were baked in a cast iron mold and the heat came from the charcoal. Since, I don't have any of the stuff, I baked them in the oven with a simple Kuih Bahulu mold. The result was pretty good!
6 Large Eggs
150 g Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract, optional
200 g Pastry Flour or Cake Flour, sifted
1/2 tsp Baking Powder, sifted
A pinch of Sea salt
Preheat the oven to 400˚F/200˚C and lightly grease the baking tray.
Sift the flours, baking powder and sea salt and set aside.
In a mixer, whisk the eggs and sugar until fluffy and pale in color, about 8 minutes. Then add the vanilla extract (if using) and continue whisking for a couple of minutes. Fold in the sifted flours and baking powder gently until well combine.
Brush the mold with oil and place in the oven for about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the mold from the oven. Fill the batter onto the mold and bake for about 10 to 13 minutes or until they are light golden brown in color. Lift the cake out with a thin skewer or toothpick and let it cool completely and store in an airtight container.
