Lapis Legit Pisang (Banana Layer Cake)

I had a bunch of over-riped bananas but tired of eating banana cake so I decided to make this instead. Well, it was a rather impromptu decision, that is why the layers are thick, I was baking this at about 8pm and wanted to complete it before midnight :-P Since this is not exactly an easy thing to bake, I have put up the recipe here at my other blog.
Enjoy !!

Easy Sweet & Sour Chicken

This is a very hassle free dish except for the frying of the chicken pieces. For the sauce, I used 3 off-the-shelf ones which I normally keep stock at home. My kids love sweet and sour sauces so I usually make various versions with different ingredients. As for the chicken pieces, I only use flour, salt and pepper.

The sweetened plum sauce which I purchased from Sheng Siong if you are living in Singapore. Don't use too much of these because this is pretty sweet.

Maggi ketchup and chilli sauce. If you want spicier flavour, you can use other brands like sinsin extra spicy chilli sauce.

Here is the recipe, adjust the sauce according to your taste. You don't have to follow the amount in my recipe.


200-250g chicken fillet, cut into bite size
1/4 - 3/4 C plain flour
salt & pepper (amount is up to you)
oil for frying

2T sweetened plum sauce
4T ketchup
4T chilli sauce, add more if you want it spicy or use extra spicy chilli sauce
1T-2T hot water

spring onion


1. Heat oil in pan
2. Combine flour, salt and pepper in a ziplock bag and shake to mix them
3. Add the chicken pieces and lock the ziplock bag, leaving some air and shake to coat the chicken pieces with the flour mix
4. Fry the chicken pieces till they turn golden brown

1. Mix all the ingredients and heat it up or microwave for about 1-2 minutes

Put lettuce on a plate, place the chicken pieces on the lettuce, pour the sauce over and garnish with spring onions.
