Indonesia's signature layer cake, Lapis Surabaya or Spiku, is so dear to most of Indonesians. The cake is commonly used for the base cake of decorated wedding and birthday cakes in Indonesia.

Usually, the original recipe of Lapis Surabaya would require lots of egg yolks for the cake batter but the one that I found in my cooking book was the simpler version (that also guarantees similar result). It is pretty much a Lapis Surabaya recipe for beginners and only requires 5 eggs for each layer.
