Science week special: honeycomb recipe
In honour of National Science Week, we go behind the scenes and take a look at the science of honeycomb.
Have you ever wondered how the bubbles in the honeycomb are created? You won't have to wonder anymore, thanks to RACV Cape Schanck Resort Head Pastry Chef Shannon Thirumal. He's put together a simple honeycomb recipe using the magical ingredient bicarbonate soda. You'll see how the heat from the sugar mix breaks down the bicarbonate soda causing it to release carbon dioxide gas. And it's that gas that causes the bubbles in the honeycomb, and it’s those bubbles that make the honeycomb expand! But don't take our word for it - break out your inner nutty professor and give it a yummy go.
