Layered cake pandan
What is layered cake pandan?
This sweet treat is 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. This green variety is colored by pandan , which is also called ‘vanilla of the East ‘.
