Bzz! Bzz! Y’all hear that? The queen bee is here and she came bearing gifts- it’s the honeycomb cake! This cake takes its name from its beehive-like interior, full of little air pockets, with honeycomb tunnels going from the bottom up. Doesn’t it make you feel like a little bee in a beehive when looking at it? Fun fact, this honeycomb cake has a few siblings! The indonesian Bika Ambon and the Vietnamese Honeycomb Cake are all quite similar, but our Malaysian recipe calls for the sugar to be caramelized first, which makes it a darker colour than the others!

- 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
- ½ cup Condensed Milk
