The Layer Cake or Kek Lapis, is something I never thought I'd be baking. When I saw my Mum making it many, many years ago, I thought to myself "So troublesome, so time consuming, so not making it next time!". She would be standing near the oven, opening and shutting the oven door every 4-6 minutes, each time the timer went "Rriiiinnnnggg! Scooping the lapis batter into the cake tin, layer by layer........ Sigh.....very tiring, you know....
Lo and behold, I now love baking the Kek Lapis! It is a must have in my household each Hari Raya. I have not tried making any of those fanciful Kek Lapis Sarawak. Maybe one day. As for now, I am happy just making the simple kek lapis.
