The Easy to Bake Kek Lapis

My 3rd time using this Kek Lapis recipe...
I think it's a pretty easy to follow.
When I made it for the first time, I was very new to baking.
And I succeeded...
 I doubled the recipe and it was really hard to manage..
butter splattered all over my kitchen! HAHA!
And my oven was not working very well for the grill function, 
it took about 10 minutes to bake each  layer..

And look at one of the dark layer. 
I turned the temperature higher, and my oven burst out in smoke! HAHA!
And it got charred!
I wanted to discard the whole thing, lucky i didn't because it still taste good~
Although the layers were uneven too =p
I'm glad that they love my kek lapis!

Hope all of you had a wonderful gathering with your love ones!
