Lapis Legit is a Dutch-Indonesian layered cake. It was developed during colonial times in the Dutch East Indies and may have been based on Dutch cake recipes using local ingredients[citation needed]. The cake is the Indo (Dutch-Indonesian) version of Baumkuchen and contains a popular mix of spices of cinnamon, clove, mace and anise.
In Indonesia, the cake is very popularly known as lapis legit, which literally means (very) rich layer-cake. The cake is very rich for a 20 cm × 20 cm size cake contains up to thirty egg yolks, 500 g of butter, and 400 g sugar.
The name of the cake is derived from its layered structure. This layered structured is achieved because of the many very thin layers of cake that are piled on the top of each other. A good lapis legit has more than eighteen layers. This makes the baking of spekkoek a very labour-intensive process. In Indonesia, it is usually eaten when New Year’s eve, Lebaran, and Christmas event.
