Rainbow Nonya Kueh Lapis Recipe | Singapore Nine Layer Steamed Cake | no bake Asian desserts

OPEN for ingredients! Today we’re making Nonya Kueh Lapis/Kuih Lapis, or Gao Teng Kueh, or Nine Layer Steamed Cake. This fun colourful, gluten-free, oven-free cake is addictively chewy and requires very minimal ingredients. Not exactly easy to make, so I’ve got lots of tips in here to ensure perfect, yummy kueh each time. This is a favourite dessert in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia, rich in coconut flavours.

There’s only one way to eat Kueh Lapis – peeling it layer by layer. Any other way is the wrong way 😛 😛
