Rainbow Kuih Lapis


"Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high. There's a land that I dream of once in a lullabye". Each time I look at a Kueh Lapis, I would be reminded of this song from the Wizards of Oz. This is such a lovely traditional cake, made out of a mixture of rice flour/tapioca starch mixed into coconut milk and steamed one layer at a time. To be considered successful, you must be able to tear out the individual layers. If they stick to each other, then you will know immediately that the cake is a failure. I am really happy with how my Rainbow Kueh Lapis turned out and everyone whom I shared the cake with gave it a thumbs up for its nice springy texture.
