How to make it

  • * Preparation Batter *
  • Pre heat the oven to 160c/350 f(convection).
  • Pour the coconut milk into a saucepan and add the castor sugar (160 g). Bring to a boil, stirring slowly to dissolve the sugar. Set aside to cool.
  • Sieve the cake flour, baking powder and salt.
  • In a bowl, combine the egg yolks, coconut mixture, pandan juice and pandan essence.
  • Whisk lightly, then add the flour to the egg yolk mixture. Mix until the batter is smooth. Set aside.
  • Whisk the egg whites lightly and add in the cream of tartar and castor sugar (1 tbsp). Continue to whisk until the mixture is stiff. Do not overheat or allow the mixture to become dry. Set aside.
  • * Baking the cake *
  • Gently fold half the beaten egg whites into the egg yolk mixture and blend well.
  • Fold in the remaining egg whites and work very lightly with a spatula. Make sure the mixture is well mixed.
  • Place the finished mixture in an ungreased chiffon cake mould. Level and bake in the oven until golden brown (about 45 minutes).
  • Remove the cake from the oven and invert the mould. Allow it to cool.
  • Do not remove the mould while the cake is still hot.
  • When it has cooled, use a long, fine palatte knife to loosen the sides of the cake to remove it from the tin.

    Pandan is a leaf plant that we asian people use a lot when we make dessert because of the delightful aroma it have and the beautiful green color it turns our desserts into. You can find the plant's leaf or its extract in asian grocery store. If you ever use an extract, eyeball the amount u pour, because 1/2-1tsp. (teaspoon) can go a long way (like food colouring). Don't know what the plant look like? Google it- "pandan leaf"/"pandan extract".

    Sounds different - is there any way you could edit the recipe to explain what pandan is? Thank you! (just to save you time later) :)

    hi elly, if you can't find cake flour you can substitute it with self raising flour

    The cake is soft and delicious!
    It took me longer than 45mins to bake it, perhaps I did not set the pre heat temperature right.
    But definitely a good recipe to try!
