Indonesian Thousand Layer Cake (Lapis Legit)

This recipe was my family's favorite,Lapis (means layer) legit (means sweet), it remainds me of my brothers and sister, a week before chinese new year we made this cake by order.

I woke up earlier to help break up the eggs and seperated them, because we only use the egg yolks, then my brother will bake it.

This recipe already adapted due to the sweetness and healthy,here on the picture I use half recipe.

Ingredients :
  • 150 gram caster sugar
  • 200 gram creamy butter (the smell stronger than butter)
  • 100 gram margarine
  • 30 pcs egg yolks, sift
  • 2 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon milk powder


  1. Beat caster sugar together with butter and margarine until pale,
  2. put in egg yolks, mix until blended well
  3. put in flour and milk powder, blend well.

How to bake :

  1. Heat the oven, using upper heat (about 270 celcius) 10 minutes before baking,
  2. using square (20x20x5) or circle (diameter 20) cake pan, brush the bottom and all side the pan with butter, then line the bottom with baking paper.
  3. pour 2 tablespoon of batter into the pan, spread evenly, bake with door open half,
  4. repeat this for next layer untill the batter finished,
  5. at the last batter, don't close the door, just turn the pan until the cake looks brown evenly then using lower heat about 160 celcius, bake the cake for more 10 minutes, put it out, let it cool.

How to serve :

If you use square pan, cut this cake into 5 (about 4 cm each) then cut them into 1/2 cm thick.

Notes :

  • Remember do not leave the oven while you bake this cake because it easy to burn.!!!
  • When you bake this cake, you will see some bubbles so stick the bubbles, then cover with next batter.
