Kuih Bahulu is one of my favourite snack cake. Gertrude from My Kitchen Snippets gifted this seashell mold to me some years back and I have used it to make jelly and sponge cake. That is what I did...kuih bahulu for CNY. I took the recipe from Anncoo and love it...so light and springy..mmmm and what makes it even nicer to serve to your guests during the CNY period is the beautiful shape of this kuih bahulu. The different types of seashells. Not only the kids loves it , the adults are thrilled too, I can see my brothers even picked the one they like and popped into their mouth LOL! sometimes audults behaves like a child too :)
beautiful seashells.....right? Envy me :p
