Lapis Legit / Spekkoek Cake by Fitri D. // Rumah Manis
Baking a (very) rich Indonesia layer cake is always on my list especially for big celebration such Eid Celebration. One a reason is too keep our tradition going in our international household :) .

You will never see me bake this rich cake in regular day, too much work for sure and I don't feel like to keep the weigh-scale needle going to the right side either. This little cake is contain 30 yolks... *grin* so, please if you are on diet, stay away from this cake even just for a slice :D

And in this moment I 'd like to say : wishing you happy Eid Mubarak - TAKABA LALAHU MINA WA MINKUM
