Kue Lapis/Layer Steamed Cake

Kue Lapis is traditionally cake consisting of alternating layers which is steamed separately. It takes about ten minutes for each layer to be steamed, making of a kue lapis time consuming process. You can count how long I need to cook this Kue lapis ^_^

1 l (1000 ml) coconut milk
400 g tapioca flour
100 g rice flour
400 g castor sugar
1 tbsp vanilli
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp pandan paste (or any food colour which you like: red, brown etc)

directions: Put sugar, flour, vanili, salt in a mixing bowl, then pour in coconut milk gradually until all together mix well. Divide the batter into two. Add pandan paste to a half of batter and mix well.
Grease a (20x20)cm pan with a bit cooking oil. Take one vegetable spoon of batter or about 100 ml batter into pan then steam for 10 minutes in a steamer. Pour another colour of batter and steamed it again for 10 minutes. Repeat this similar step until the batter is used up.

I simply love this lapis cake! I know how long you have to steam it layer by layer, that's why I have yet to make it again after my 1st attempt. I just simply too lazy to wait that long, and another 8 hours before we can cut and serve it....man! But so good though, guess have to see how strong is my craving for this cake huh?

In Singapore, we called it "nine-layer cake". Our kueh lapis is the cake version and not the "kueh" version. Oops, am I confusing you ?
