Lapis is a Nonya sweet, sticky cake made out of mainly rice flour and tapioca flour. The name of this cake means nine layered cake or 九层糕 in Chinese.
Thank you Kenneth for sharing your recipe! Here is a link to Kenneth’s recipe: http://kwgls.wordpress.com/2013/12/04/this-is-different-from-kek-lapis-this-is-kueh-lapisnonya-kueh-lapis/
I tried making the cake in black and orange layers adding Pandan paste to flavor the black layers but the orange layers were not bright enough.
The cake turned out really good though.the recipe is a real keeper!
