Layered cake coconut
What is layered cake coconut?
This sweet treat was only served on special occasions, because it is quite laborious to make it yourself; layer by layer the cake must be baked. Luckily you can buy the fresh spekkoek now so you don’t have the hassle. The Dutch name ‘spekkoek’ (baconcake) is caused by its’ resemblance with streaky bacon, called speck in Indonesia, where this treat originates.
In this coconut variety, the spiced ,dark, rich layers, alternate with lighter layers with coconut flavor, a good combination.
