Where to get Indonesian Honeycomb (bika ambon) cake?

Lynndsey Rigberg | Mar 11, 2007 01:26 PM

Hi Chowhounders,

After spending a year in S.E.A I am totally addicted to Indonesian honeycomb cake. Desperate to find some, I visited Sampang Asia and found a box mix - it was a total disaster. Maybe there's something wrong in the translation, so I went online searching for recipes...I did find a couple but the temperature was all screwy and weird (it says to bake the cake at 70 Celsius, which is about 170 Farenheit!!!...and then to switch to "grill" function on the oven...and I have no idea what that means!)

Long story short, I've completely given up on making this cake from scratch and just need to have some. NOW.

Simpang Asia, amazingly, doesn't have it. They said the cake was too complicated to make!

Chowhounders, HELP!
