I have been making these for so many years and have forgotten where the original recipe came from.
My Dad loved this cake its rich, butterscotchy, and all it needs is a dollop of whipped cream.
The name? The cake does resemble a honeycomb kinda hornet's nest when the butterscotch pieces melt a little
