Indonesian Layer Cake

5 years ago

I could eat Layer Cake everyday if only it`s easier to make!:) It takes a lot of skills and patience when you are baking this very popular Indonesian cake because you need to bake this cake layer by layer to achieve the right taste and texture. This is my first attempt (hopefully not last!) of making this cake and it came out really moist and buttery, I really really love it! If any of you is interested of making this cake, here`s the recipe that I used :)

Kek Lapis Recipe

12 oz butter
2Tbsp condensed milk
20 eggs yolks
5 oz icing sugar

2 oz superfine flour, sifted with
1.5 tsp all spice

2 Tbsp brandy (optional)

Method :

Lined and greased a 6 inch cake pan. Preheat oven at 380 degrees Farenheit.
Beat butter and condensed milk till smooth. Leave aside.
In another bowl, beat the egg yolks and icing sugar till pale and thick.
Fold butter into egg yolk mixture.
Lastly, fold in sifted flour in 2 batches until combined. Add brandy.
Turn the oven to grill function. Put cake pan into oven for 1 minute.
Put a small ladle ( about 2.5 oz) batter into pan and spread evenly. Bake for 5 minutes or till the top is brown.
Remove from oven and and scoop the same amount of batter for the second layer. Repeat the same process.
After you have finished the last layer, turn the oven to bake function. Cover top of the cake with aluminium foil and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes.
Remove and cool on wire rack.
