Kueh Lapis Sagu in a Bundt Pan

Recently I was inspired by someone posting her Kueh Lapis made in a Bundt pan. I was very keen to find out how difficult it is to make one.

Due to the tall structure of the bundt pan, I didn’t follow the traditional 9 layers for the kueh. I had to add four more layers to make up for the height of the bundt pan.

To make this delicious kueh, click on the video tutorial and print out the recipe below.

Thank you
