Seashell Bahulu / Seashell Sponge Cake

Ain't this cute? They are so cute right? Well..a dear friend of mine brought this seashell pan  back from the US specially for me as my belated  birthday present...ohhh I am so blessed indeed try guessing who gave this to me. You will know if you have read her blog. Keep guessing...I will let you for the time being keep guessing..... Of course I can't wait to try it out....knowing me ! LOL!
This seashell pan has 24 shells design on it...beautiful seashells...I can just drool on it the whole day if I have the time so I decided to post them up here so that I can glance at them and thinking what I want to make using them...chocolates? jellies? and little seashell cakes for kids party? Wow..this is so cool, thank you so much for this belated present dear . ( I am not telling here..I let my readers guess first ...:p) but you know who you are :)).. Thanks, I treasure this not just because this is cute but coz of your thoughts :) Thanks.

I made kuih bahulu for breakfast snack for Piggy girl. One load can make 48 pieces of seashell...haha in 15 minutes all gone. This recipe was taken from Anncoo's blog . The taste is wonderful and I am definitely using her recipe again. Sweetness is just right and this is wonderful for kids parties. Now I know what to bake for the kids in my church.

beautiful seashells.....right? Envy me :p

the beautiful seashells bahulu to tempt you....for the weekend :p

Kuih Bahulu ( taken from Anncoo )


3 large eggs,
90 gm castor sugar 
1 tsp vanilla essence
90 gm plain flour
3/4 tsp baking powder


1.  Place a greased bahulu mould into preheated 190 C oven.
2.  Whisk egg at full speed for one or two minutes until light, pale and fluffy.
3.  Add sugar and vanilla extract and beat at full speed for another full speed of 1 - 2 minutes until thick and   creamy. 
4.  In another bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. Fold lightly into the above mixture with a hand whisk.
5. Grease the heated grease mould again, scoop batter and fill to the top of the mould.
6. Bake at 190C for 7 minutes or until top is golden brown.
7. Remove kuih bahulu from mould with the aid of a skewer and leave to cool on a wire rack. Continue with the rest of the batter ( Step 5 - 7 )
