Kuih Bahulu (Sponge Cake)

Kuih Bahulu Mould

'Kuih Bahulu' as it is known in Malay language, are actually mini sponge cakes. Traditionally they are baked in brass moulds that come in all sizes and shapes. Kuih Bahulu are the Asian version of Madeleines, which are slightly crusty on the outside but  a little dry and spongy on the inside.  They are best eaten with a cup of coffee.

110g caster sugar
4 eggs (weigh about 59g each)
zest of an orange
a pinch of salt
115g cake flour, sifted

oil for greasing the mould

  • Preheat oven at 200°C.
  • With an electric mixer, beat sugar, eggs and orange zest until thick and pale.
  • Gently fold in flour. 
  • Grease mould and preheat in the oven for 5 min.  Remove from oven and fill the hot mould to 100% full.  
  • Bake for 10 min or until golden brown.
  • Remove the mould from oven and using a skewer, gently lift the cake out.  Leave the cakes to cool on a wire rack.
  • Grease the mould and reheat for another 2 min before filling up again. Repeat the steps until all batter is used up.
