Lapis Roll

My last submission for this month's Aspiring Bakers event - at the same time to fulfill my craving of this Indonesian traditional cake :)

One of the most difficult cake to bake - time consuming and lots of patience required, but it's really worth to go thru all after you sink your teeth on this moist cake
Often called a thousand layer cake cos of the many thin layers - but this time I made a twist since I myself is busy packing my stuff
I made just four layers and roll it up :)

Recipe is from Rima's site
(a little modified by me)

140g creamery butter (I used Golden Churn)
1 tbsp condensed milk
12 large egg yolks
90g icing sugar - sifted
1/2 tsp vanillin powder
1/2 tsp mixed spice powder (spekoek powder)
10g cake flour - sifted
5g milk powder - sifted

Preheat oven to 160degC
Grease, lay with parchment paper and grease again a square pan (I used 24x24cm)
Beat butter til pale and light, add in condensed milk - beat well, set aside
In a separate bowl, beat eggs, icing sugar and vanillin & mixed spice powder til thick and pale
In low speed, add in flour and milk powder - mix well
Divide the batter into four
Spread the first layer, bake with top+bottom fire for 3 minutes, switch to top fire and bake til golden brown
Spread the second layer, and bake exactly like the first layer
Followed by the third and fourth layer
Final bake with top+bottom fire for 3 minutes
Take out from the oven, let cool on the cooling rack
Roll with parchment paper away from you while it's warm - tighten it
Let it set in the paper for approximately 10minutes
Take out the paper and cut

Such a sinful indulgence - every bite worth the effort :)

I'm submitting this roll to Aspiring Bakers #9 Swiss Roling Good Times hosted by Lynn from Obsessedly Involved With Food at this LINK

Now, back to packing business - tomorrow is my D-day for moving out
No internet connection from tomorrow and back to normal on Monday evening
