Apart from Lapis Prune, I loved this lapis Haw Flakes. And since Hari Raya Haji is just around the corner and I will be going back to Alor Setar, I baked this to bring back home!
I used the recipe that was posted in Rima's blog and the source was frpom non other than Bro Rozzan. This recipe has biskut marie in it, and MIL uses biskut maries in her Pineapple Upside Down cake, so I figured this cake would be divine! So, here goes:
450g butter (I used SCS salted)
210g sugar (I used 150g)
10 eggs grade A
300g Marie biscuits, finely ground .....err with my new basic Kenwood processor...this was a breeze!
300g sweetened condensed milk
85g sekaya...couldn't stop myself from calil-calit.....bliss!
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp baking powder
2 packs haw flakes about 200 pieces, i didn't count but bought an extra packet just in case
Food colouring...I used wilton's red red and americolor's fuschia
1.Preheat oven at 175 Celcius.
2.Whisk butter and sugar until light and fluffy, add eggs one at a time, and continue to whisk at high speed.
3.Add in vanilla, your batter might curdle...but fret not....it will resolve!
4.Turn speed to low and add in condensed milk and sekaya...yum!
5.Fold in Marie biscuit that you grind earlier.
6.Divide batter into equal parts...I did 2 portions.
8.Bake 2 layers of each color, the second layer spread the haw flakes:
9.Once all done, cover the top with an aluminium foil and bake using upper and lower heat at 150celcius for another 10 or 15 minutes.
.....the taste...I couldn't describe it........divine.....this is by far one of the kek lapis that I like, but Lapis Prune is still tops!
