Kueh Bolu

Bought 2 new recipe book from Popular this afternoon. Got me so inspired to make Kueh Bolu from the book - Egg Me On from Seashore publisher. Anyway I was pondering about no 'fresh' breakfast for the kids tml morning and I dont want to give them those ready swiss roll packs unless on a 'rainy' day. So there I go, my virgin attempt.

Overall, it is quite easy to make. Just need to beat egg and sugar to ribbon stage, fold in flour and oil. After making them, I did goggle a bit on what are the avail recipes. The one that intrigue me was those without using oil, I wonder what texture it yield. I am so gonna try that next. And another thing, I will be adding some vanilla essence as I prefer vanilla VS eggs!
This recipe gives a soft and not dry texture in my view. Outside, some are very dry that you seriously need to drink lots of water while eating them. But I have also encounter those that taste like little cakes. This is definetely not gonna stop at 1 attempt.
