Mini Egg Sponge Cakes
Mini sizes and cupcake sizes.
I love kuih bahulu (or as my mom called it kuih bahlu) and always wanted to make it but just didn't have enough push to really do it. Then, I saw this mini egg sponge cakes recipe from Hut of Cranberry's blog and according to her, it tasted just like kuih bahulu, so I guess that did it. All I needed was her pictures to convince me to get baking! So, I made it! I followed her sugar amount 80g and it turned out just nice, not too sweet and Evy ate 1.5 cupcake sizes and a few mini ones at one go.
I guess this little cupcakes is healthier since no butter or oil is used in the recipe. Or is it an illusion to seduce my mind to eat more? Especially when I baked it in the mini cupcake sizes, one is nothing at all, can't even get the satisfaction out of it. Need at least a handful, perhaps that's why Evy ate so much?
Soft and nice, not to say fragrant too!
So, if you like egg sponge cakes or kuih bahulu, do give this recipe a try! Just remember to beat your egg mixture until pale and thicker in consistency or when you write an 8 on the batter it will be visible for 10-15 seconds before adding in the flour. Notice that I used paper cups? Either this or grease your pan well. :)
