Lapis Nutella Cake

Let me start this entry by wishing all my Muslim readers Eid Mubarak & Selamat Hari Raya Idul Fitri. How was your celebration so far? Hope it has gone well.... Alhamdulillah, mine has been good so far. We only went visiting on the first day since that was the only public/school holiday. So the visiting will have to continue this weekend.

Tonight's sharing will be the recipe for the Nutella Lapis which I made for the two mothers. As I've mentioned before, I usually prefer to bake 2 lapis cakes together, so I decided to bake the same cake for my mum & mum-in-law. 

I don't think you would be wondering if this cake tasted good.... it's Nutella cake! It can't go wrong, right? Besides, there're condensed milk & Horlicks too, & from my experience, any cakes that have any of these three ingredients will not disappoint me. However, this cake did take up more than the usual time to finish baking. It took me 2 & a half hours to complete baking the two cakes, almost an hour more than baking other types of lapis cakes. So you do need more patience if you wish to bake this Nutella lapis cake.

Lapis Nutella
(Makes 1 cake.)

500 gm butter
180 gm caster sugar
1tsp ovelette
1 tsp vanilla paste (I added.)

10 eggs (large)
1 tin (397gm) sweetened condensed milk

260 gm Hong Kong flour (I used cake flour.)
100 gm Horlicks powder (malted milk powder)
220 gm Nutella spread

180 – 200gm Nutella spread (to top the Nutella layers)

  1. Preheat oven (grill or top heat only) at about 180 deg C. (Refer to my post here for more tips on baking lapis cakes.)
  2. Grease & line the bottom of a baking pan. (10x7 inch or 8x8 inch.) 
  3. Combine butter, sugar & ovelette in a mixing bowl & cream until fluffy, about 10 minutes.
  4. Add in eggs, one at a time, & continue mixing until well blended.
  5. Reduce the speed of beater & add in condensed milk, continue mixing.
  6. Reduce speed to the lowest possible & add in flour & Horlicks in 3 parts. Mix until well blended.
  7. Divide batter into 2 parts. Leave 1 part  plain & add Nutella to the other part.  (I weighed 1 part 220g lesser than the other & added Nutella to the lighter part. In this way, I would not end up with too much excess Nutella batter.)
  8. Pour 90g of plain batter into baking pan. Spread  the batter evenly & bake for about 3-5 minutes or until the layer turns golden brown. Remove the pan & press the layer with a lapis cake presser to even out the layer & pop any bubbles. 
    .... a lapis presser.
  9. Next, pour 90g of Nutella batter & spread it out. Then spoon Nutella spread onto the batter (as shown in the above picture). Bake until cooked. 
  10. Continue with plain & then Nutella batter, until finish.
  11. When finished, turn the cake onto a wire rack & leave to cool before slicing & serving.

Faeez said...

Hi, you can use a flat-bottom drinking glass. That was what I used long time ago before cake presser was invented. Happy baking! :)
