Earlier this week, DH came back from Jakarta after attending several meetings, presentations and company visits and were gifted with these two favorite cakes of mine, Layer Cake (Lapis Legit or Kuih Lapis) and Bika Ambon. The layer cake is so out of this world, it is really yummy and it is one of the best ones I have tasted.
I actually prefer the original type of Bika Ambon, but we got a Pandan Bika Ambon, which was so well made too. Bika Ambon, despite its name (Ambon is a place in Indonesia), is famously originated from Medan and among the more popular traditional desserts in Indonesia. Both these cakes are heavily loaded with egg yolks and butter and all the sinful things. Eat them in moderation, if I could.
