Lantiyas is a wonderful dessert. It is layered cake covered in vanilla cream pudding, and topped off with the wonderful taste of cinnamon. I hope you will enjoy this dish as much as my family does.



*note: I never, ever, use eggs in my latiya.


I suggest you bake your favorite brand of Yellow cake mix. Follow directions on the box; Or if you have to; buy a sponge cake, pound cake, or angel food cake from the bakery.

Optional ingredients:


1. Add evaporated milk, water, sugar, and extract to a large double boiler over medium-high heat. Continue stirring liquid with a wire whisk until you see that the liquid is starting to steam (about 10-15 minutes).
2. Combine corn starch with the 1/2 cup water in a separate bowl to form a sluree. Add immediately to the pot and stir constantly and quickly until milk begins to thicken.
3. Lower heat to medium and stir now with a long wooden, or heat proof spoon.
4. Continue to stir until milk has doubled in thickness. (This may vary, you'll know the difference by "feeling it". At the start you'll feel the liquid is lite, then as it thickens, it will start to feel heavy.) Check the milk, which now looks like pudding, by running your finger across the back end of the spoon and drawing a line, if the line holds, your pudding is ready.
5. Remove from heat and set pot on a wooden cutting board to cool.
6. Add butter to the pudding and stir until the butter melts completely in the pudding mixture. *note: If the pudding still feels too thick, I suggest you add more evap. milk. BUT do so, a little at a time until you reach the desired thickness you want.


1. Cut the cake lenghthwise about 1/2 inch thick. 2. Layer cake in a shallow platter(s), forming about 3-4 rows of cake.
3. Spread the pudding mix on top of the cake layers completely covering the platter, but being careful not to run off the sides of the platter.
4. Sprinkle evenly with cinnamon.
5. Set aside to cool for at least 30 min. Before cooling in the fridge (makes a world of difference)

Okay, now here's the secret. Melt 1/2 stick of butter in a bowl and add 1/4 cup grand marnier, kahlua liquor, or rum. Then, mix the liquids together to make a butter sauce. Afterward, use a pastry brush to spread the butter sauce across each layer cake BEFORE spreading the pudding mixture on top. So, there you go, thats the secret. Eat up and enjoy. I hope you'll like it.
