Back by popular demand, Christopher’s Lapis Surabaya class will teach you all you need to know to make this favourite and decadent cake at home – plus other dependable recipes to keep in your back pocket.

1. Lapis Surabaya
This classic three-layered Indonesian cake, also known as spiku or spikoe Surabaya, is distinguished by a fluffy yet velvety texture thanks to generous amounts of butter, eggs and egg yolks. Unlike many commercial versions, Christopher’s recipe is not too sweet, and only uses all-natural ingredients – absolutely no margarine or artificial emulsifiers or flavourings.   

2. Quick Raspberry Jam
A fruit conserve to sandwich your Lapis Surabaya layers together, tart and refreshing to counter the richness of the cake.

3. White Coconut & Rum Pound Cake
What do you do with all the egg whites left over from baking Lapis Surabaya? You make this delicious yolk-free pound cake, of course! In classic American style, it has a sturdy golden crust and a buttery, tender, melt-in-the-mouth crumb flecked with grated coconut, all scented with a whisper of rum and vanilla.

4. Kue Mangkok Pandan
Springy and soft steamed cupcakes fragrant from fresh pandan juice, a retro teatime treat which can be enjoyed with many different accompaniments – salted grated coconut and palm sugar, or sambal hay bee, or soft cheese, or simply salted butter. Another recipe to help you use up extra egg whites.
