55 years of Independence.
A good excuse for us to throw a small-ish get-together.
A typical Malaysian hospitality - a gathering would not be a gathering unless there's a lot of food on the table. You find that people tend to gravitate around the food, which makes it the most important part of any social activity in Malaysia.
What I'm trying to say is food is very important to us! or maybe it's just me... who knows...
Well, anyways, back to our little gathering, we had a smorgasbord of food...
I finally conquered my fear of making Kek Lapis (Layer Cake)
I decided to start off by baking a simple no-frill Lapis Betawi but without the spices as the Family is not to fond of them spices in the cake. Now, that starts me thinking - can the cake then be call Lapis Betawi if it's baked without the essential ingredient?!
Confident from my successful initial Kek Lapis attempt, I decided on this light Pandan Lapis (Pandan Layer Cake).
I'm quite happy with the result!
