Since my hubby went on reservist starting from yesterday till next fri, I have alot of free time to myself. I make an attemp to make this Keh Lapis last nite.

It’s was not the first time I made this, but it’s the first time I made it all by myself. Previous ones was made together with my mummy, she can make very nice great lapis. But consider it was the first time I’m making this all by myself, I’m great it turns out quite well. Except that the actual layers are not that high, I cheated abit on the photo by cutting the lapis into half and stack on top of each other as the cake tin I use was too big  Too Funny  Maybe next time I try again using a loaf tin, I think it should be better… heehee

Makes 1 (7-inch) cake

7 egg yolks
150gm castor sugar (superfine or granulated sugar)
1 tsp. vanilla essence or extract
150gm butter, softened at room temperature
1 tbsp. brandy
90gm plain flour (all-purpose flour)
1 tsp. mixed spice
7 egg whites


1.        Grease the base and sides of a 17cm (7-inch) square cake tin and line base with greased greaseproof paper. 

2.       Whisk egg yolks with sugar and vanilla essence until creamy. Beat in butter and brandy and stir in flour and mixed spice.  

3.       Whisk egg whites until just stiff. Pour egg yolk mixture into egg whites and fold gently.  

4.       Heat grill (or broiler in top part of oven) to moderate and place the prepared tin under grill (broiler in top part of oven) for 1 minute.

5.       Remove the tin from grill (broiler) and put in a ladleful of batter.  

6.       Spread batter evenly by tilting tin, and grill (brown under broiler) for 5 minutes, or until lightly brown.  

7.       Repeat until batter is used up.

8.       Turn out and cool on a wire rack. Cut the cake only when it is completely cooled.
