Coconut Bahulu

Bahulu or Madeline is a sponge cake make from a special cake mould pan. This time I created my own bahulu recipe which I infused coconut milk into the batter.I love coconut flavor in cake ,cookies or drink. Unfortunately this coconut bahulu can't be keep for long period.It's advisable to eat it while it's still warm and finish in 2 days.The bright side is the sponge cake texture is soft and moist.


1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
100 ml water
400 ml coconut milk,or I can
1 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
3 large eggs,room temperature
some oil for brushing

1:Combine all ingredients in a mixer or a large bowl,beat well until smooth.Sieve the batter into another large bowl,set aside.
2:Preheat oven to 375 F.Lightly grease the bahulu moulds with cooking oil and place them in a preheated oven for 5-10 minutes.
3:Remove excess oil from mould before spoon batter into the mould about 3/4 full of the mould,not to the top of the mould.(The batter will expand and overflow)
4:Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.Remove mould from oven,use bamboo stick or tooth pick to remove the cake from the mould.
5:Serve warm with tea or coffee.

Wow!! What a mouth-watering recipe. Reminds me of something my mom used to cook :). Have you tried using a plane white plate rather than the designed one? I think that will make your photos look more tempting and drool-worthy :) Just a thought - I am not an expert by any means.

Wah lau, this looks just too good! Don't have the mould so I might have to use mini muffin trays! :)

I have a question. I have a cousin who is allergic to coconut. I wanna just make the plain bahulu. If i take out the coconut, do i need to replace it with anything?

I LOVE these cakes!! it reminds me of my childhood. we used to have them for tea after school with some tea or bandung!

Hi, your coconut bahulu looks so tempting. =) So much so until I tried baking them today. Well, I failed. The bahulu turned out really hard on the outside. Initially I baked for 10 mins but it was not done (not golden brown, very fair) & thus I baked for another 5 mins & it became so hard on the outside and not cooked on the inside. Can you kindly advice me what went wrong? Thank you so much.
