Thousand Layer Cake (Kueh Lapis Legit)
When I was younger, I’ve always looked forward to Chinese New Year because of all the wonderful goodies that we get to eat! Among all the snacks, my favourite has to be the Indonesian Thousand Layer Cake (also known as the Kueh Lapis in Singapore and Kek Lapis in Malaysia). Kueh Lapis, which literally means rich layer-cake, is made up of many very thin layers of cake piled on the top of each other. It is very rich for its size as it consists of large amounts of butter and sugar as well as many egg yolks. Because each layer is spread out and grilled separately, the cake is very moist, delicious and highly addictive.
