I tried making this Malaysian Honeycomb Cake and to my surprised it was quite easy to make and it tasted very nice but a few pointers we have take note, that is the baking time , it must be at least 1 hour , why?? So that more tunnels or honeycomb texture can be formed . And to remember to allow the cake mixture to rest at least 10 minutes before baking, so as to allow the baking soda to work on the cake mixture. And to have a lighter texture, fold in the flour and caramel syrup to the egg mixture using a spatula and not a cake mixer. I realised that this cake is actually easy as ABC and yummilicious too. I will be making this for my next pot bless party :)
This cake has a beautiful fragrance, that of the caramelised sugar and it has a beautiful honeycomb/tunnels and a chewy texture. Thumbs up for this Malaysian Honeycomb Cake !
I found this beautiful step-by-step video demo on U-tube. Here is the link if you are interested to try this out. I hope you will enjoy this cake as much as I do. Piggy gal came back and ate almost the whole cake, the rest she took back to KL ..that’s why I love having her back….she slurps everything up whether my bakes turned out well or not….:P and this trip back she requested for more buns…garlic buns, sausage buns and roll bacon buns and buns with cheese /bacon filling….so a weekend filled with bakings and the whole house smell like a bakery alright. I baked till 2am last nite becoz I went to attend a wake service. Came back and started baking the 2nd batch for my Piggy boy. He loves my sausage buns, so how could this wicked Momsie leave him out! ;P I made extra for Piggy gal ‘s room mate Kim too coz she too loves the buns… will blog about the buns in my next post.

like a little girl having her first piece of cake! ^ *
