Triple Delight Cake
This cake is also called Surabaya and is a delicious 3 layered cake, coming from Indonesian cuisine.
Three batter mixes are prepared, two with a naturally produced yellow colour, the other is mixed with cocoa powder to produce a dark brown colour.
The layers of cake are glued using strawberry jam.
Chopped nuts may be added to the layers for texture for variations.
There are a lot of egg yolks used in this cake and that what makes the cake so rich.
