Here are my combination Lapis Legit and Lapis Surabaya Cake. 

Lapis Legit - Half recipe from what I normally baked

100 gr Butter
75 gr Margarine
1 tbsp Condense milk
1 tbsp Rum

12 Egg yolks
2 Egg white
85 gm. Caster sugar

25 gr Plain flour
5 gr Milk powder

Colouring (optional)

- Preheat 200C
- Cream butter till creamy and pale in colour. Add in condense milk and rum, mix well.
- Whisk ‘B’ until thick & double in volume, then add ‘A’, whisk until mix well.
- Fold in ‘C’, mix well using spatula.
- Prepare 8 inch (20x20cm) tray, lined at the bottom.
- Bake the first layer with top-bottom heat.
- Then bake the next layer until the last layer using top heat. Try to bake it each layer not more than 5 minutes or else, the cake will turn hard.
