Amazingly Layered Cream Cracker Chocolate Coconut Steamed Cake

{{totalReview}}
Craving for a freshly baked cake but ran out of flour? Try out this decadent, beautifully layered Cream Cracker Chocolate Coconut Steamed Cake. It’s just like an easy version of the well-loved Kueh Lapis, and can be made with readily available ingredients. If you don’t have a cake mould, simply use a bread pan or a deep glassware dish (if the mould is wide and shallower than a cake pan, just create less layers). Remember to let it set before cutting into it!
