Cheese Kuih Bahulu

Experience a new take on this local favourite with your family and friends this Hari Raya Aidilfitri. Most of you would have had the classic, especially during festive seasons; We made ours a cool version with cream cheese in them, giving it a new twist. If you can’t get the Kuih Bahulu pan, you can simply use a madeleine pan for it.

Fill up the pan cavities halfway through and add in the cheese cubes for that added cheesiness to it. Do make sure that the pan is greased well and hot as well!
