Pandan honeycomb cake

This is a traditional Vietnamese cake that has a soft honeycomb appearance in the centre and a golden colour on the outside. Can be done with vanilla essence instead of the pandan, but I personally prefer the pandan for flavour and the vibrant colour. Pandan paste is available at all Asian grocery stores.


  • 1 cup of rice flour

  • 1 cup of tapioca flour

  • 3/4 cup of sugar

  • 1 can of coconut cream 400 ml

    Whisk eggs, sugar and coconut cream and pandan paste till just combined.

  • 3.

    Mix the 2 flours and the baking powder in another bowl.

  • 4.

    Add the wet ingredients to the flour mix and fold till combine.

  • 5.

    Pass batter through sieve to get a smooth mmixture.

  • 6.

    Take preheated pan out and spray with oil spray before pouring batter in.

  • 7.
