All about layer cake...
Hows the long weekend peeps?? its been pretty hectic for us.. we were basically everywhere hehehe.. it started fm thursday night and on friday right after friday prayer.. we went to town.. thats where i managed to take a glimps of Baumkuchen (tree cake).. never seen nor tasted it bef and of cos the moment i saw it I was in awe.. the way it was being done is just amazing and oh how i wish i cud take the rotating spit home with me ahakss
I bought a couple of pieces.. ate it straight away and i loved it!! loved it!! loved it!! the texture is so so soft and i came home thinking abt it non stop... i googled for a couple of recipes but wasnt too sure if it was going to work so am back to square one.. thinking abt all the layers on that cake and at the same time craving for layer cake hahaha.. i just had to do something.. if i cant bake Baumkuchen at home.. i sure can bake lapis legit.. right?? hehhe
So on Saturday afternoon right after we came back home from an unplanned trip to JB.. i bought myself another tray of eggs.. cracked em all up and baked lapis legit keju..
30 egg yolks
450g caster sugar
350g margarine - i used Tatura butter (550g)
2 tbsp full cream milk powder - i used condense milk
2 tsp bumbu spekoek powder - i used 1tsp of spekoek powder and 1tsp of vanilla powder
50g parmesan/cheddar/edam cheese - I used 150g of shredded white cheddar (next time i will shredded it finely cos i hv difficulties slicing my cake!)
Preheat oven 175C.. greased an 8x8 pan
On a stand mixer.. whisk butter and condense milk till creamy
Lower mixer speed and add spekoek and vanilla powder..
Once mix.. Add sifted flour and continue to whisk at lowest speed till incorporated - set aside
In another bowl.. whisk egg yolks and sugar till light and fluffy (like baulu batter)
Add in butter mixture and continue to whisk it at low speed
Weigh ur batter and divide it by 26 or was it 28 layers? heheh - each layer weighs 68g
Bake using upper heat.. bake it for 7 mins for every layer.. top with cheddar cheese on every 3rd layer
Bake last layer using upper and lower fire for 10 mins on 160C
