Halloween Kueh Lapis: A Spooktacular Sweet Twist | Low GI Recipe

Adding an Asian twist to your Halloween celebration can turn the festivities into a truly delightful and unique experience. Imagine sinking your teeth into layers of vibrant hues - a black as dark as a midnight moon, a yellow as bright as a jack-o'-lantern grin, a purple as mysterious as a witch's brew. Each bite bursts with a harmony of textures: the soft, melt-in-your-mouth coconut flavour. It's a dessert that's as visually captivating as it is palate-pleasing, sure to cast a spell on everyone who tries it.

We'll be using Nuvojoy's Low-GI Kueh Lapis Premix. The key is to divide the batter into four portions and add natural colouring powders to create those spooky shades.

Here's how to make your own Kueh Lapis:


  • 1 pack Nuvojoy's Low GI Kueh Lapis Premix
  • 85g water (or 100g water)
  • 110g fresh coconut milk (or 120g UHT coconut cream, if fresh isn't available)
  • Nuvojoy's Natural Colouring Powders (Black Charcoal, Yellow Pumpkin, Purple Sweet Potato)


  1. Whisk together the premix, water, and coconut milk in a mixing bowl until smooth.
  2. Divide the batter into four equal portions in separate bowls. Add the colouring powders: 1 bowl remains white, 1 gets a sprinkle of black, 1 gets a touch of yellow for a sunny surprise, and 1 gets a dash of purple for a touch of mystery.
  3. Pour half of a coloured batter into a greased glass container or Halloween-themed mould. Steam for 5 minutes.
  4. Repeat step 3 with the remaining colours, building your layers one by one.
  5. For the final layer, steam for 7 minutes to ensure it sets perfectly.
  6. Let your Kueh Lapis cool completely before removing it from the container and slicing it into pieces.

Bonus Tip:

  • Garnish your Kueh Lapis with edible flowers for an extra festive touch.

It's the perfect way to add a touch of magic to your Halloween celebrations, and it's sure to be a hit with everyone who tries it. Share your experience or memories of making Kueh Lapis and tag us on social media.
