This recipe is originated by Rabiah Amit, the popular layered cake book writer from Sarawak. Her book is a must have if you interested in layered cake making.
Herewith the recipe which I have modified for more accurate measurements. I have also tried to explain the method a bit more for greater clarity. The original recipe is in Malay language and translated into English:
10 Egg yolk*
2 Egg white*
250g Castor Sugar*
1 tbsp Ovalette*
75ml chilled Water*
3/4 can Serikaya* (1 can is 300g)
250g Hong Kong flour
4 tbs Condensed Milk
4 packet of Haw Flakes
1. Place all ingredients marked* in a mixer bowl & beat with high speed until fluffy & thick. (Tips: The bowl need to be big enough to handle the volume which get doubled up)
Fold in flour gradually until well mixed.
2. In a separate bowl, beat butter & condensed milk until white & fluffy.
Combine into the earlier mixture.
3. Grease & line 8 inch square tin.
Spread about 2 big scoop into the tin & grill until the top is evenly brown.
Take the tin out from oven and press surface with cake presser to ensure even layer.
Repeat for second layer.
Arrange haw flake by inserting through the two layers at 45 degrees angle.
Repeat the above process until all batter is used up.
4. For all layered cakes, I always bake the cake at 180C for 30 minutes as the last step to ensure that the cake is properly cooked through.
