Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to Kuih (Kek) Lapis. A popular snack in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia (Kek) , this is the most prettiest cake I have ever seen. So time consuming to make, but I reckon worth the effort entirely! All the colours of the rainbow! And all the flavours, watermelon, cheese, peppermint?!
Myself and my my travel companion, Diana, bought 3 between us in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo. We almost ate a whole one between us in one night, I finished it the second day!
They are sold on the main Bazaar, hundreds of them, in every country flag you could want. We took a boat taxi across the river (apparently the best place to get them) and just as you get off behind the food court, you will see a rainbow sign, and a purple building. Ring the doorbell and a lovely little old Malay lady will get up from her soap opera and come out and meet you. 10 RM per cake, so soft and moist. We tested loads of the flavours, and it actually tastes what it look like! They keep in fridge for 3 – 4 days.
For those of you brave or patient enough, here is a recipe I found!
