Kuih Ambon

It’s funny. I have never tried Kuih Ambon although it’s been selling all over the place until recently when my Mum started to bring some Kuih Bingka Ambon back home from Singapore. Kuih Ambon is also known as  the Honeycomb Ambon cake as it’s texture resembles that of a honeycomb. The cake originates from Medan, north Sumatra.

Only back home did I start savouring the delightfulness of this cake and started googling up on how to make this. There were many recipes in the net, even with many easy step by step videos to learn from. So I didn’t exactly feel that it was going to be very difficult to make this cake and decided to give it a try. The recipe is adapted from Tina’s Kitchen I loved her idea of using just egg yolks to make the colour much more yellow and intensive.
