Indonesian Layer Cake (Kek Lapis)

A cake must taste pretty SPECTACULAR to have THAT many names for it.

Indonesia: Spekkoek, Spekuk, Spiku, Kue Lapis Legit

Malaysia: Kek Lapis

Singapore: Kueh Lapis

In general: Layer Cake, Indonesian Layer Cake

Kek Lapis originated from Indonesia during the Dutch colonial times. A tasty traditional dessert was the result of a wonderful fusion between the aromatic local Indonesian spices with the European multi-layered spit cake.

It is one of a kind and has a distinctively sweet aroma exuded by a lovely mix of spices such as cinnamon, cardamom, clove, anise and so on. To enjoy the rich buttery flavour of the firm-textured cake, they are best served in small pieces.

This Dutch-Indonesian version of layer cake remains popular in Indonesia and is often served and given as gifts during festivities like Chinese New Year, Hari Raya, Birthdays and Weddings.

Eating it may be a wondrous experience but baking it is a very tedious job! Not only is it labour-intensive, the ingredients can come up to a hefty price too. Some say the hard work is worth it seeing the intricate layers and getting to taste this delicacy.

Tempted but can't bake to save your life?
