Lapis Legit Rainbow



Rise and shine peeps... am home and I likeee hehe.. Sonia's school is closed for teacher's day celebration and am planning to take her out later... been awhile since we got to do our mother- daughter outing.. will probably take her to her fav indoor playground bef going to town..


This cake was baked a few days ago... i had wanted to update my blog sooner but was busy with a few orders... i am planning to slow down a little as i hv to start packing my stuff.. we asked our mover to come last night to give us a quote and will be getting boxes sometime next week... if all goes as planed.. i shud get all things packed by third week of sept.. which got me a little sentimental out of a sudden.. huhu i am gonna miss my beloved oven.. it has done its job well and i hope my new Bosch oven will do the same :o)


So anyway lets get back to this eye-catching cake - this is a story of a baker on a yearly basis.. bake for others but only bake for her own Eid goodies two weeks after Eid ahaks.. I had actually baked it for Sonia to take to school yesterday for teacher's day.. sliced it nicely and packed some in small boxes.. Sonia was super excited abt the whole idea and the moment we dropped her off.. we saw her giving it out and wishing her teacher.. "happy teacher's day" :o)

Ty Shirley of Dapur Solia for sharing such a wonderful recipe.. i was a little surprised to see the small amount of egg usage in this recipe.. cake turned out moist and delish.. the taste of spekkeok powder was prominent eventho i only needed to use 1/2 tsp of it.. for a woman who has always been baking 26 layers in her lapis legit.. this one was a breeze lol


Ingredients
(A)
700g eggs - abt 12 eggs
450g sugar
18g Emulsifier
1/2 tsp vanilla paste
1/2 tsp milk paste - i didnt hv so decided to use 1 tsp of vanilla paste

(B)
325g low protein flour - cake flour

(C)
400g margarine
300g butter (or butter substitute) - i used 450g of SCS and 250g of Wisjman butter

(D)
1/2 tsp spekkeok powder
Prunes
purple, blue, green, yellow, orange and red colour paste

Method
- Preheat oven 160C.. greas 8" baking pan
- Whisk butter till creamy - put aside
- Whisk ingredients A until fluffy
- Add ingredients B - beat again until blended
- Add ingredients C - beat again until blended
- Weigh ur batter and divide it by 13 (the number of layers)
- Part 1 (equivalent to 7 layers) - add spekoek powder
- Part 2 (equivalent to 6 layers/divided into six bowls) - add colour paste to each bowl
- Once ready.. pour abt 164g of spekkeok batter aka plain batter into ur baking pan and bake it for 10mins.. change ur oven setting to grill mode and pour in purple batter.. this is how the layer shud be.. plain - purple - plain - blue - plain - green - plain - yellow - plain - orange - plain - red - plain.
- Add prunes on last layer and bake it using grill mode for 5 mins bef changing it to bottom heat and bake a further 5 mins.


Ok peeps.. it looks like its gonna rain.. i better get my bottom up bef i declare today "laze around day" lol.. hv a wonderful weekend and to my Malaysian friends... Selamat Hari Merdeka.. enjoy the long wkend and happy baking!

It's sort of like mix spice.. Spekkeok powder is used in making lapis legit cos it gives out certain aroma n taste that a normal mix spice lacking.. I sell it in my store but am running out of stock.. Will only stock it up when I go to jkt..

Rima said...

Ty Ayin.. Sonia says the same thing hehe

Rima said...

Yes Mel.. It uses whole egg.. Nice right? Hehehe

Mrs Hakim said...

Sis Rima,

Apa spekkeok powder tu? mcm mane rupenye...

Rima said...

Mrs Hakim
hmmm its sort of look like mix spice but rasa and bau dia lain sikit.. spekkeok powder memang diguna kan untuk lapis legit but if u cant find it ... u can always use rempah kuih/mix spice

Mrs Hakim said...

Thanks Kak Rima 4 ur info and tips... Love u...

melmisha said...

Salam rima... lapis rainbow in the making dalam oven.. just nk clarify few things.. the batter is quite thick ya?? I mean x watery that u can just scoop and pour that it will level sendiri.. lepas tu apa few layers..mine kan ada mcm bubble at one spot and lepas kluar kan dr oven dia jadik mcm hollow at that spot. What could i have done wrong ya?? Pls advise....thanks...
