Lapis Legit Mocha Latte



I wish i could update my blog on daily basis just like bef but its so difficult to do so now.. with Sonia in school and no more baking in the afternoon.. i sometimes wonder.. how long Bisousatoi will last.. am not saying that i wanna quit blogging.. i hv been a dessert blogger for almost 3yrs now and if I can juggle between my daily routine, baking and blogging .. that wud be awesome..

Happy Tuesday peeps.. hows the weekend.. hows the week so far?? kids out of school.. stay at home mom busy as a bee.. i am enjoying my time with my little princess.. am glad this week we get to chill in bed like bef.. watch telly.. have breakfast together.. have lunch together and when she takes a nap i get to bake.. thats how it used to be - nevertheless this is life.. once ur kid starts schooling.. u just hv to get used to the new routine..


I baked this lapis legit on Sunday evening.. earlier that day i baked pavlova and bec i need to stock up on my egg whites for my upcoming KL orders.. i thought why not bake layer cake.. Afterall, i hv not been baking layer cake for months.. baking layer cake is my all time fav.. dont ask me why tho.. not that i get to sit in the living room while its baking.. 5 mins on sofa and my alarm will go off.. so usually i will just sit in my dinning area with my lappy waiting for the bell to ring..


Anyway last weekend while we were in one of the malls.. i happened to buy a slice of coffee layer cake.. the portion was so so thin that u couldnt help but to wonder how many slices they get out of the whole cake.. i mean we are afterall talking abt S$1.60 per slice! I took a bite and all i cud do is to shake my head.. the coffee taste wasnt strong.. u cud tell what (lousy) grade of butter was used.. honestly it tasted more like sponge cake.. i guess when ur a baker.. ur expection is a little higher.. better off baking it urself even if it means u will have to crack 45 to 50 eggs ahaks..(and when you are a baker's husband....lets not go there... hehehe)


This super wonderful recipe was shared by Ayin.. shes one great baker and if u look at her layer cakes.. u will know what kinda layer cake u will get.. the texture of this cake is moist.. the sweetness is just right.. rich and ohh tastes so so yummeh.. i decided to sub chocolate to mocha simply bec we knew we would get our coffee layer cake fix by doing so.. go and get urself a a few blocks of butter (good butter!).. two big trays of eggs and start cracking.. I guarantee that u will love me for this hehe.. Ty Ayin for sharing!


Ingredients
45 egg yolks
400g caster sugar
900g butter - i used my last can of wisjman butter and scs butter (cold)
3 tbsp condensed milk
50g milk powder
50g flour - i used hongkong flour
chocolate paste - i didnt use
1 tbsp coffee extract/oil/essence - i added
1 tbsp Toffieco mocha paste - i added
1 tbsp Toffieco vanilla paste - i added

Method
Preheat oven 175C.. greased n layer with baking paper in ur 9" baking pan
Whisk butter with 200g of sugar.. once its fluffy.. add condensed milk and continue to whisk till pale in colour - put aside
In another bowl.. whisk egg yolk and 200g of sugar till fluffy.
Add butter mixture into egg mixture and mix till well combined
Add sifted milk powder and flour into ur batter
Divide batter into two part.. add coffee extract and mocha paste into one and to another part add vanilla paste
Weigh ur batter for each layer to achieve same thickness.. bake first layer using top and bottom heat.. bake the rest of the layer using grill mode - top heat..
Bake last layer for 10 mins using lower heat..
Once baked.. let it rest for 5 mins bef u take it out of ur pan.. let it rest till cool bef u slice it..


Ok folks.. i am not too sure if i will be able to take any pics of my bakes this week since I am returning Timo's camera this evening (yep its been more than a month.. dont know whats taking them so bloody long to settle our claim!!! grrr).. hubs is flying off to Jakarta early tmrw morning and i will be a little busy with my orders.. so take care all.. play nice and hv fun with ur kids!

Hmmm shud i bake one more time bef i return Timo's camera? welp

Rima said...

Zarin
woooahh mintak autograph sikit! hehehe.. congrats congrats.. ku tumpang gumbira

Rima said...

Anie

sigh .. insurance claim ni kan memang lah.. dah more than a month dah.. punya lah lambat .. hari hari tunggu letter.. boleh stress tau.. sampai nak try new recipe jadi malas if tak de camera.. ceeehhhbahhh hahaha

Try lah if u hv the time.. makan masa sikit cos u hv to lapis alot more layers.. taste wise.. malas nak cakap hahaha

Azian said...

Kak Rima,

Last Monday my friend bring the kek lapis Cadbury from Sarawak. Sedap. Why not try the recipe with Cadbury or any chocolate bar..mesti lagi best kalu kak Rima yang bake.

Rima said...

Azian
i hv baked kek lapis with cadbury and i think i hv already posted it in my previous entry..

Shirley @ Kokken69 said...

This is perfection, Rima!

Rima said...

Shirley
huk huk ur pound cake is perfection.. last night i baked again ur buttermilk pound cake.. had it for breakfast this morning hahaha

Nomie Aziz said...

this is extremely beautiful layer cake. I luv it!

Rima said...

Nuraini
ty.. there is no way that u are able to fit it in ur 7" cake pan.. even an 8" pan not big enough.. use 9" and u will get a higher cake .. better choice.. either use 10" or pan yg untuk kek lapis ..

Weight depending on the weight of ur batter.. u weigh ur batter then u divide by the layers that u want ur cake to be.. this one in particular each layer is 93g.. so u bake 2 layers of vanilla.. followed by 2 layers of mocha.. bake it till finish

Rima said...

Ty Naomi.. worth the penat lelah lah

Aishamirafiq said...

Rima...

Geram betul tgk.. nak try ah.... Tapi kan.... boleh tak if recipe tu bagi half jer? heheh...Jgn marah ask stupid question.

Psst..Last weekend buat macaroon... tak jadi ah... fedup! Last last cik tong yg mkn...

Rima said...

Aisha
mesti boleh lah kan.. u divide ajer the recipe jadi half.. i usually lebih suka bake full recipe.. kira macam tak waste time lah kaedahnye plus i can gv others to makan mahh

Why hancus?? what telah happened?

Ummu Madihah said...

Rima, your lapis legit - a picture of perfection. Looks so much better than those from Sarawak or from seberang!! Am sure it tasres perfect too!!

♥LOVE2COOK MALAYSIA♥ said...

45 egg yolks??? I thought you were kidding la sis. Mak ai...cantik tul lapisan dia. I will never ever can do this nor I have the patience...lol! ;)

teckbaked said...

Hi Rima, your products is always piece of art. I finally made a successful egg whit steam cake with the help of SP, it was colorful and beautiful but I do not like the taste, it tasted so artificial with the flavor paste, I will make again when I find the real flavoring, thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Your daughter is so professional.

teckbaked said...

Hi Rima, I made a tray of Putri Salat aka Serimuka today using your recipe. But I am no sure how the top layer's texture should be. Mine was very soft like kaya. I used 10g sago flour and steam for 30 mins on med and low. Could it be under cooked? Thanks.

Rima said...

Hi Teck
u hv to use flour and corn flour as stated in my recipe..

Did u cook it over low heat till it thicken bef u pour ur kaya on top nof ur glutinous rice? u shud steam it for an hr for the kaya to set.. once done.. leave it outside for a couple of hrs or till its cool down bef slicing em..

Yoa Ngadenin said...

Hi kak, dont ever give up blogging kak please cos many will meroyan if u're not around. U always made our days kak. Take care n hope u get well soon.

Justin said...

Wow, 45 egg yolks and almost a kilo of butter! It looks amazingly perfect and tasty though. What to do with all those whites though?

Rima said...

Yoa
not for now.. i will keep going selagi ade waktu.. ty dear for ur kind words..

Rima said...

Justin
Yep.. 45 egg yolks and almost a kilo of butter.. cholesterol cake hahaha

Egg whites - u bake macarons.. pavlova... cakes.. brownies.. steamed cakes with it :o)

laurena aloh said...

Hi,

Been followin yr blog fr quite awhile n hv tried so many of yr lapis lengit n they work well. Just a minor hiccup sometimes whn u want to peel off parchment paper d 1st layer goes w it. I dont normally bake d last layer w upper n lower fire....just suffice if d last layer is cooked n i wil take it out to cool bef taking it out frm pan. Do u close yr oven door while u bake or leave it close...is that technique used to ensure cake moist? Sorry so many questions.

Lee Hong Heah said...

Hi, Can I made the original without adding Mocha and Vanila essense? May I know if any recipe modification is required? Thanks in advance.

Rima said...

laurena
i bake it at lower temp using upper and lower heat with my door close for abt 10mins.. to ensure my cake is fully baked..

lee hong heah
yes u can.. of cos.. no need any modification
