Raya is around the corner and that usually means feasting to your heart’s content. During this festive period, lots of effort and time is put into preparing and cooking mouth-watering dishes, such as ketupat, lontong, rendang and etc. Sweets and cookies are not excluded too.
Despite the pandemic, we can be grateful and grasp this opportunity to be more involved with this year’s Hari Raya preparations with closed ones. And that means, baking and cooking Hari Raya goodies together!
Together with Dr. Oetker Nona, Kuali brings you this list of TOP 10 RAYA MUST BAKES that are bound to have everyone asking for more. Well known for their wide range of baking products, you can find baking goods, aids and decors, cooking chocolate, colours and flavours, frying flours, quick premixes and more.
Let’s dive into these Raya baking inspirations!
How easy can it be? All you need are 3 ingredients: oil, water and eggs. Easy and fuss-free, top it off with a scoop of ice cream to delight!
Fondly known as Kuih Semperit, this is one of the staple cookies in every household during festive and even non-festive seasons. Buttery and brittle in texture, these cookies literally melt in your mouth. You can try making this tri-coloured version to wow your family and friends!
Cucur Sayur Rangup
For those looking for a crunch – what about these savoury vegetable fritters? Once you start, you can’t stop. They are that crunch-worthy.
Fluffy Souffle Pancakes
May be eaten at any time of the day, these pancakes are often described as airy and delicate as pillowy, soft clouds. These pancakes are normally less sweet than traditional ones, which leave room for sweet toppings such as gula Melaka syrup and coconut, on point with the Raya theme.
You could even turn these pancakes into pandan flavoured ones just by substituting the water with pandan juice or by adding Dr. Oetker Nona’s Pandan Flavouring.
Baked Oatmeal with Bananas & Strawberries
Those looking out for a slim figure could consider this Baked Oatmeal recipe that is nutritious and rich in fibre and antioxidants. A good choice of snack to fill you up for busy days.
The name itself has such a foreign ring to it that people thought they originated from London, which is not the case. The mystery is yet to be solved, but Almond London cookies are another commonly found cookie during Raya house visits, loved by all regardless of age and pretty addictive. The rich flavour of DON’s cooking chocolate makes them ideal as a coating for these Almond London and trust us, the bite would be heavenly.
Another staple and popular cookie during Raya is the ‘Tart Nenas’. To save the trouble of making it from scratch, you could opt for Dr. Oetker Nona’s Tarts mix to make the pastry base and top it up your favourite pineapple stuffing. Equally crumbly and buttery.
Fancy Ice-Cream Cookies
This would be something that the kids would love because they’re fun and colourful.
Dr. Oetker Nona’s ‘Hundreds & Thousands’ and ‘Rainbow Sprinkles’, give flair as well as an interesting texture to these cookies. Decorating cookies with these sprinkles would definitely be something you and the kids can enjoy together.
Moist Marble Cake
Marble cake is undeniably a classic, childhood cooking memory. Whether it’s just classic butter and chocolate or with the addition of other colours, it is a good tea time and Raya treat.
Using Dr. Oetker Nona’s Butter Cake premix assures you a consistently pleasing marble cake minus the time and trouble, without compromising on its rich flavour and soft, buttery texture.
Lastly, if you are looking for a baked good to give this Raya, why not consider these lovely blueberry muffins?
Best of all, if you do not have the time to purchase ingredients from scratch, you could consider these fruit-ilicious Dr. Oetker Nona Muffins Blueberry premix.
Needing only three ingredients: oil, water and eggs, it’s that simple and reliable for a joyous Raya gift!
