Layer Cake

In Malaysia, this is called 9 layers cake (Kuih Lapis) as it should have 9 alternate white and pink layers. This cake is very common in the morning or night market.

Each layer of the layer cake is separable and that’s how we eat it, layer by layer. This recipe is from my friend Jessica. I have another recipe which turned out too soft. Perhaps it’s the flour that caused it. I used all-purpose flour as the recipe only says flour. Jessica’s recipe uses rice flour instead.

Ingredients

White layer:

  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 3 to 3 1/2 tablespoons tapioca flour
  • 200ml rooster brand coconut milk (which is more liquidy)
  • 1/2 cup + 3 tablespoons castor sugar
  • 100ml water

Red layer:

  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 3 to 3 1/2 tablespoons tapioca flour
  • remaining of the coconut milk from a 398ml can
  • 100ml pandan flavour water
  • red food coloring
