Vietnamese Pandan Honeycomb cake cut on plateThis is a delicious sweet, chewy pandan flavored tapioca cake with coconut milk. To have a successful cake, you have to follow the instructions closely. I love making this cake from scratch at home because I do not add any food coloring. The hue is naturally from the pandan leaves.

You're welcome! I love this cake, too! I actually made this cake 3 times within the week and out of 3 times (2 times were a success). My recipe varies from others, some add more sugar or other ingredients + coloring, I don't. :)
