Kek Gula Hangus (Honeycomb)


This cake is 1 of my family favourites. To be frank, before I got this to a perfect "sponge" look I already tested more then 10 times...the first few was disaster...every time I made either the sponge didn't rise or my oven temperature was not right...good thing about this recipe it did not used up a lot of ingredients ... so its OK to try so many times..hehehehe

Ingredients for caramel:-
1 cup sugar-(1 cawan gula)
1 cup hot water-(1 cawan air panas)
2 tbsp butter-(2 sudu besar mentega)
On medium heat, fry sugar in a saucepan. When the sugar has almost melt, add in hot water(be careful @ this part cause it will be popping.) Add in butter and stir till melts. Put to cool ans set aside.-(Gula digoreng dengan api sederhana besar. Bila gula dah agak cair masukkan air panas-kena berhati2 sebab nanti dia meletop letop. Tutup api & cepat masukkan air panas tadi dan masukkan mentega kacau sampai mentega cair. Ketepikan)

Ingredients for cake:-
4 eggs-(4 biji telur)
1 cup condensed milk-(1 cawan susu pekat)
1 cup plain flour-(1 cawan tepung gandum)
2 tsp soda bicarbonate-(2 sudu teh soda bicarbonate)
1 tsp vanilla essence-(1 sudu teh vanilla essence)

Method:-
Using a hand mixer beat eggs till creamy and thick. Add in condensed milk mixed well. In a blender pour eggs and milk mixture. PRESS the on button. Then add in plain flour & soda bicarbonate which has been sifted and Vanilla Essence. PRESS the on button again. Lastly add in the syrup. PRESS the on button again. Leave the mixture in the blender for 3-4 jam(covered) to get a beautiful 'sponge'. After 3-4 hours, pour into a 5" greased tray in order to get a 'higher sponge'(I used 7" inch tray) in oven.Without stirring the mixture(This was what I did), pour the ingredients directly into tray in the oven. Bake for 60 minutes or till cook at 160 degrees Celsius (For my oven I used 145C degrees and bake for 90 minutes) using just the below heat(api bawah). The last 20-30 minutes use both heat(api atas and bawah). Take out from oven and let it cool before cutting. -(Pukul telur sampai kembang & pekat. Masukkan susu pekat and mix lagi. Tuangkan adunan kedalam blender dan tekan ON. Masukkan tepung & soda bicarbonate yang telah diayak tadi dan esen vanila. Tekan On lagi. Last baru masukkan gula hangs tadi. Tekan On lagi. Biarkan adunan dalam blender selama 3-4 jam(tertutup) untuk mendapatkan 'span' yang cantik. Selepas diperap, masukkan adunan kedalam loyang yang telah digris dengan butter(Tanpa menggodak adunan tu). Gunakan loyang 5", kalau nak kek yang tinggi( saya gunakan loyang 7" aje)Tuang adunan terus kedalam loyang dalam oven. Bakar dengan suhu 160C selama 60 minit. (Saya bakar suhu 145c selama 90 minit untuk oven saya) dengan menggunakan api bawah sahaja. Balance 20-30 terakhir, pakai api atas dan bawah. Keluarkan dari oven dan sejukkan dulu sebelum potong.)
