Kuih Bahulu is a Chinese sponge cake and is commonly eaten during Chinese New Year. It is hard and crispy on the outside but soft fluffy on the inside due to the amount of sugar content of these cakes.
Grease the Kuih Bahulu tin well with
Vegetable Oil (as needed)
Preheat oven and Kuih Bahulu tin to 200 degrees C (400 degrees F).
In your mixing bowl, whisk together
Granulated Sugar (1 cup)
Salt (1/8 tsp)
on high speed for about 8 minutes until light and fluffy.
After 8 minutes, turn your mixer to medium speed and drizzle in
Vanilla Extract (1/2 tsp)
While the butter and sugar cream, in a separate bowl, mix together
All-Purpose Flour (2/3 cup)
Baking Powder (1/4 tsp)
Lastly, gradually add in flour mixture until everything is well combined.
Transfer the mixture into a large piping bag as it will be easier to pipe into the tins.
Pipe out the mixture into the preheated tins carefully until 90% of the way up. Bake it in the oven for 10 minutes.
Carefully remove the cakes from the tin using a bamboo skewer. Re-grease and repeat until the batter is finished.
Let it cool completely before transferring into an air-tight container. Serve and enjoy!
