Kuih Sarang Semut (Caramel Honeycomb Cake)

Oh no I'm in love with honeycomb cake! ^0^ Compare to the Kuih Bingka Ambon I've done previously, this Caramel Honeycomb Cake tasted much lighter and softer with a spongy texture and deep caramel flavour, great to enjoy it with a cup of tea. 

Making of the caramel syrup

Whisk egg, fold in condensed milk & flour followed by the caramel sugar, rest for 3 hours then ready to bake! Some recipes indicated it is not necessary to rest the batter for such long hours and still able to achieve the honeycomb texture. But on the safer side, I've chosen to rest it longer hopefully it will turn out right :D

After baking...the whole house lingering with rich caramel smell!

  3. In a clean mixing bowl, beat eggs until light. Add in condensed milk and stir till well combined.
  4. Sift in flour and baking soda into egg mixture till smooth. Lastly add in cooled caramel syrup and mix till well incorporated.
  5. Pour the batter into a 8" square greased pan. Let the mixture rest for 3 hours. 
  6. Bake in preheated oven at 180 deg cel for 50-60 mins or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
