Categories: Indonesian, Desserts
Yield: 6 Servings
6 Egg whites
1/2 ts Vanilla extract
1 1/2 c Sugar
1/2 ts Cinnamon powder
10 Egg yolks
1/2 ts Nutmeg
1 1/3 c Butter
1/2 ts Allspice powder
2 1/2 c Flour
Beat the egg whites with one-third of the sugar and, in a separate
bowl, beat the egg yolks with another third. Soften the butter and
cut into small pieces, them mix this with the remaining sugar and
beat until light and creamy. Place the three mixtures into one
large bowl, add the flour and vanilla extract and blend thoroughly.
Transfer two-thirds of the mixture to another bowl and to this add the
cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice powder and stir to blend well.
Pour one-third of the spiced mixture into a well-greased cake tin
and bake in a moderate oven until firm, then add half the plain
mixture and bake until this is also firm. Repeat the process three
more times; spiced, plain, and ending with spiced. Turn out onto a
wire rack and allow to cool before serving.
