Traditional Kueh Lapis

I laid awake on bed early Sunday morning. Thinking if 4hours is enough for me to bake a lapis cake for my dad birthday function next week. After counting the number of hours needed, I jumped out of bed and started on my preparation for the Kueh Lapis cake. As usual, I used Florence's recipe since I've succeded a couple of them with it. So I'll stick to her recipe whenever I wanted to bake the Kueh Lapis cake.

Since I was going to use a 10" by 10" square pan, I multiply the recipe by 2. That means, it's a whopping 20 egg yolks! Good grief! You see the amount of egg yolks and butter that goes into the baking, you'll probably not eat them after baking! That was what I thought initially! But after baking, I still took some try. Just can't help it, I simple love Kueh Lapis! :)

Hi, it's me again, Becky. Just to let you know i managed to log on to Florence's blog for the recipe. Sorry for any inconveniences. BTW, how many gram of batter did you pour in for every layer of the kueh lapis?

Cheers & Best Regards!

Hi Becky.
Thanks for your compliment. I have baked it many times, meaning, it was lots of practice! :p I don't know how many grams is each layer, but I use those metal soup laddle, full scoop. Must be consistent, so must use back the same scoop, whatever you used. Sorry, not much help here.
