Kuih Tapak Kuda has fast become a favourite Raya staple kuih on dessert tables every festive season. It’s easy to make and tastes absolutely delightful. Kuih Tapak Kuda, or translated to as “hoof roll” because of its resemblance to a hoof, is essentially a rich sponge roll cake filled with chocolate ganache or a hazelnut spread (Yes, Nutella!). Think about a soft and decadent swiss roll sponge with a touch of hazelnut praline center. Last year, a home-based baker made waves with her version of the batik swiss rolls that truly harnessed the traditional elements of the Asian-Malay culture — the tapak kuda is the simpler version — but equally sedap.
If you’re a fan of swiss rolls in general, then Kuih Tapak Kuda will certaily meet your expectations of the perfect dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth. Let’s get to it!
