If I still have some spare time, I will always bake kueh lapis just for new year. Maybe of this recipe use lots of egg yolks, I found there were more wave in this lapis, therefore the line not as neat as I did last year. Or maybe I should practice more :) And I found out that this lapis even nicer if you eat on the second day, are you thinking the same way too?
