How is Fortune Kueh Lapis Made?

The main ingredients used in making Fortune Kueh Lapis are eggs, butter, sugar, flour, and spices such as cinnamon and clove, staple ingredients for a Kueh Lapis.

However, Mdm Ling Bakery sourced only the best and premium ingredients in Singapore, to provide the utmost quality for the customers.

These ingredients are blended to create a smooth batter, which is then divided into different portions and dyed with vibrant colours.

Each layer is individually baked until it is cooked through and has a slightly browned top and this process is repeated multiple times to create the distinct layered effect of the cake.

The layers are then stacked on top of each other, with a thin layer of sweet syrup brushed between each layer to enhance the flavour and the cake is then left to cool and set before it is ready to be served.

The result is a visually stunning cake with a melt-in-your-mouth texture and a unique blend of spices and sweetness including a personal touch of perfectly embossed symbol for prosperity, only at Mdm Ling Bakery.
