Danggg! i had wanted to make this as my last entry for the month of October but unfortunately it didnt make it on time.. i was busy in the kitchen preparing for tmrw's dinner.. we're inviting the Austrian couple to our place since a year ago they had expressed their "intention" to visit our so called new place.. u see they come here every single year and each year they will email us to let us know.. am happy for Sonia cos its not always she gets to hang out with hb's side..
Hb thought it wud be easier if we served korean bbq tmrw so that i can concentrate on the dessert department.. i baked macs and pavlova today.. tmrw if time permits i wud love to make crema catalana too.. will see..
Now this lapis legit was baked on Sunday night.. why did i bake it eventho we had a full on Sunday?? shrug.. i dont know.. all i know is that it was close to 10pm and it felt right to bake lapis legit. Original recipe is fm Ny Liem.. i think i must hv baked lapis legit Ny Liem more than 10 times now.. her recipe is good and produces a moist layer cake..
However this lapis legit chocolate prunes recipe has been modified by Elly.. she uses Bu Fatma type of method where u dont need to whisk ur butter and eggs in seperate bowls.. the measurement is slightly different.. this recipe (only) uses 36 egg yolks whereas the other uses 45 egg yolks.. same goes with butter.. this recipe only uses 600g whereas the other one uses 700g of butter.. nevertheless the texture of this cake remains the same.. not many dishes to wash and ur cake still comes out moist.. i loikeee hehe
400g butter - i used Anchor
200g margarin - i used wisjman butter
375g icing sugar
700g egg yolk - abt 36 - 40 eggs
50g Top Flour - i used hongkong flour
15g corn flour
15g milk powder
1 tbsp cocoa powder - i used valrhona
1/2 tbsp chocolate paste - i used toffieco brand
1 tbsp spekkeok powder
Preheat oven 170C.. grease a 9x9 pan (if u prefer a taller cake use 8x8 ok)
Whisk (A) till fluffy.. abt 15 mins using speed no 3/4
Lower ur speed to no 1 and add (B) one at a time.. continue to whisk till well combined.
Add in sifted (C) and whisk till well blended.
Divide batter into two.. add (D) into one part.. add (E) into another.
Once done u can start to grill ur cake layer by layer using upper fire.. each layer 7 mins. (I weigh my batter... each layer abt 96g.. i added prunes on every 2nd layer of the spekkeok batter)
