Barcelona! Beautiful City of Catalonia

Time: 16.20pm
Venue: Barcelona
Weather: 21C.. cooling
Mood: Good!
Peak Agenda: Err... errr... i need to sleep! hehe.. we got into Barca safely this morning.. weather is so so nice and the moment we got into the city.. my sis in law was already there waiting for us.. so all is good.. we did our little grocery shopping the moment we dumped our luggage.. I decided to stay in an apartment on this trip simply bec hb will be flying to frankfurt and berlin for work tonight till sat and i prefer to cook instead of going out to eat while hes gone.. the apartment is nice and cosy.. right smack in the middle of the city.. so easy for me to just run down and do my shopping bits hehe .. anyway i cant stay long.. i can hardly keep my eyes open anymore.. pics below show my family sending us off at the airport and the moment we got into Barca.. it really feels as tho i am in Italy and Argentina combined into one hehehe

Oh yeah.. guess what?? i managed to use up my eggs bef we flew to Barca last night.. this was what i baked... super moist.. super delish.. my kinda cake heheh.. wouldnt call this lapis surabaya tho since i only did 2 layers instead of ur typical 3 layers lapis surabaya.. the indon call this kinda cake Lapis Malang..

Anyway heres the recipe taken fm Camelia blog.. original recipe is fm Fatma of NCC

Yellow layer
10 egg yolks
100g sugar
125g butter - whipped till soft
50g flour

Chocolate layer
10 egg yolks
100g sugar
125g butter - whipped till soft
50g flour
1 tbsp blackforest paste

Whipped butter till soft .. abt 10 mins or so - set aside
Whisked egg yolks and sugar till fluffy
Add in whipped butter and continue to whisk using low speed
Fold in sifted flour
Baked at 180C for 20 mins

Do the same for the chocolate layer ok

Once cool.. spread whatever jam u like.. i used mix berries jam... and sandwich ur cake..

So ok.. I better try to take a little nap.. tmrw my SIL and i plan to go and explore Barca and will definitely take lots of pics..

CTZee said...

U know-lah when yr baby is sick your world stopped. But now my world is starting to rotate again LOL.

If success is measured by the BIG smiles & happy faces ... then my cake was a success. =) My hb was so surprised & my girl sampai menjilat piring. Of course to me I could hv done much better! And..I've successfully made macarons. I think the cool, dry weather helps too. I need more inspiration for the filling. hmmm...
Thank you K. Rima, you're my maestro. I'll definitely bake this kue lapis. Too many yolks around.

Rima said...

heheh thats my girl.. who cares ey janji sedap kahkahkah.. itew macam my motto tawww but kan makan one or two slices aje so cholestrol nye tak akan naik hehehe

Rima said...

I hope ur princess is better now.. sonia selseme dah makin kering.. batuk ade lah sikit sikit.. as long as she tak demam i am a happy mom lah..

Congrats on ur macs! am happy to hear that.. i decided to whip something bef my trip cos sayang tengok telur telur ku.. so i decided on this cake and forget abt the 3rd layer cos harus simpan a few for hero ku yg akan balik on weekend.. bujang need eggs untuk masak maggi hahaha

Salam....kak Rima really enjoy ur blog so much....everyday sure cari time tu jengok2 ur blog.. Cake sungguh temting....insyallah must give a try... Tc

Shal said...

tengok u melapis teringin pulak nak melapis sama. nvm as a sifu u melapis condo i buat umah 2 tingkat jer hahahks... wanna try out this resp. anyway size try dia brapa? 8x8 ka. now i kena godek ur blog cari kek using egg whites plak...

Rima said...

tak kira lah if ur is condo ke.. flat ke.. rumah bangalow ker.. janji semangat nak buat kek lapis sendiri tu ade.. bake it ok.. u will lap me for this hehehe

Shal said...

Rima abt this layer cake kan, i nak tanya batter dia tue mcm mana rupe nyer runny ka? mine was like kecepek...kecepek ala like pek...pek... i have to ratakan the surface. but bila i bake pandai pulak dia flat sendiri but, masa dalam oven dia menggelembung but as soon as i take it out gelembung tue turun. ermmm... how? salah ka? surface cake i licin alhamdulillah takde la macam lubang2 jerawat batu

bau masa i bake wahhh... bau telur gitu...correct???

the cake not so oily, just nice tak rasa muak. not so light not so heavy just nice.

Rima said...

I know for sure cake ini lembut and tak muak dimakan.. just like any ordinary lapis surabaya.. batter tu i tak berapa ingat how the texture cos its been awhile.. nanti if i hv the time i will bake it again and let u know the texture of my batter ok..
