Kuih gula bakar

Aisheh, I don't have to waste time making my own Malai Kou la. The Saturday Kelana Jaya pasar tani sells my favorite kuih gula bakar. One big piece for RM2 only. Yum yum!

The side view. See all the air holes. So nice.

Back view even nicer. Just love the kuih!

I must learn how to make this one day. But first thing is to learn how to cook the sugar properly. Cooking the gula bakar needs a lot of time and skills with the fire control... something which I don't have hehe.

Anyway, I bought this too. Meneram? Merenam? I forgot the name of this quih but I kind of like it too.

It's gula melaka with a flour mixture deep fried in cold then heated hot oil.

Dad don't like it because it doesn't taste like dough nut. Imagine crushed dhall beans with gula melaka then deep fried... something like that. A bit sandy texture.

One big happy family.

This is the first time that I have heard of gula bakar. I wonder if that is caramelized sugar, sugar that is cooked for a long time until it is almost bakar (burnt)?

The first kuih does look yummy. I could almost feel the sponginess of this kuih by the little tiny holes. I also like the dark deep color.

Thanks for sharing these kuihs.

My mum makes it, we call it honeycomb cake because it looks like honeycomb. and make it in golden colour, so it looks very cantik :-)

Lyrical Lemongrass: shy la.. I know how to eat only la. Dont even know the names of the quihs.

kumpung boy: hmm let me see if I can find the recipe. I know how to make the filling, but not the pastry part.


aha. there is another name for that kuih meneram. My family call it 'telinga keling'..


i think that meneram thingy is also known as "athirasam" in tamil..one of the deepavali goodies.. its nice when is piping hot from frying but gets a little hard and stale once it gets cold.
