Desserts around the world: Spekkoek

Here is something good that came out of the Dutch colonisation of Indonesia: Spekkoek (or kue lapis legit). Wikipedia says:

The cake is very rich – a 20 cm × 20 cm (7.9 in × 7.9 in) cake can contain up to thirty egg yolks, 500 grams (18 oz) of butter, and 400 grams (14 oz) of sugar.

So, definitely not for people on diets. It is best eaten in small bits anyway, because it is heavy enough that you can eat one slice and then skip lunch. Not spoken out of experience or anything.Spekkoek
