Grand Lapis Cake

This cake takes the cake of the other kueh lapis legits

Kueh Lapis Legit is a moist, rich, and buttery cake that is extravagant in a number of ways. Its richness in taste comes from upwards of 15 egg yolks (!), lots of butter, and spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, anise, cardamom and more) required to make an 8-inch by 8-inch cake. It is rich in layers – it comprises 18 thin layers or more baked on sequentially – and consequently, also extravagant in effort and skill required. The Grande Dame of Kueh Lapis is the Grand Lapis offered by Royal Istana. This is the cake that five generations of Indonesian Presidents and their guests have enjoyed. Definitely splurge-worthy, both calorie- and penny-wise.
