Kuih Ambon

When my Mum brought back some Kuih Bingka Ambon from Singapore, I was ready for more after finishing off the first batch and there’s no place insight to get them here, where I live.  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 of Sumatra.

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.
