Kuih means “cake” in Malay and kuih
bahulu are traditional mini-sponge cakes, made in metal molds like this
one. Baked for
big occasions like Malaysian Independence Day, the Chinese New Year, and Hari
Raya, the celebration following the fast of Ramadan, kuih bahulu are similar to
the French Madeline (though
far superior in the eyes of many Malays), and come in a variety of shapes, with
goldfish and buttons being amongst the most popular. Sweet and eggy, they’re
just the treat to accompany a cup of coffee.
