Pandan Soft Chiffon Cake - Asian Screwpine Cake.

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Um Safia

A beautiful cake using Pandan extract - this gives it an unusual colour as well as taste. Note: I like to bake this in an 8" round tin @ 180 C for 50 minutes then allow the cake to cool in the oven (turned off!). To decorate, I dust with icing sugar & sprinkle with toasted sliced almonds.

Try adding 1 tablespoon of pandan essence ( get the 'butterfly brand' from Indonesia ) as well as the pandan extract for a more fragrant cake. That will also give it the traditional green colour. Very delicious cake indeed. Thank you for posting.
