Layers Lickin’ Good

Remember the traditional Nine-Layer Kueh (九层糕) ?   When we were kids, these came with alternate bands of light pink and magenta, topped by a cover layer of strong red. Sweet, slightly chewy and lemak, these were well loved by everyone.

One of the favorite ways of eating was to peel off layer by layer – somehow it added more fun.  And we often we would put a light pink layer on our tongues and let it hang out like that of a dog, and showing off to our siblings.   Woof ! Woof !

These days, the Nine-Layer Kueh has acquired a whole gamut of colors, to the extent that it is rather hard to find the original version.
