How to make Bahulu -( Malaysian sponge cake)

1. Sieve both flour together with baking powder.
2. Whisk the eggs and sugar until thicken.
3. Add the vanilla essence.
4. Fold in 20gm of sifted flour at a time into the egg batter. Preheat oven to 250 degrees centigrade. Lightly grease the mould (to prevent the bahulu from sticking) and spoon in batter. Do not fill to the top. Bake bahulu for about five minutes in hot oven.

Alternatively, you can bake bahulu the traditional way by using charcoal fire. You have to place the hot coals on top of and under the mould.

Bahulu keeps quite well in an airtight container, but will harden with time.Its nice to eat it warm. so you can reheat in your micro-oven  to get back the softness texture.

This cake is something like madeleine cake
