Pandan Chiffon Cake

Pandan Cake has a unique fragrant that captures my appetite since young. I have been trying Pandan Cake through many baking sessions and they were either too dense or having the taste way out of expectation.

Having tried so many Pandan Chiffon Cake Recipes, I have finally altered one to suit my taste buds. I altered the original recipe with less sugar, oil with more coconut milk, and Pandan Juice.

Recipe is suppose for 25cm tin but I spilt them into two tins, 15cm and 25cm tin, taking into consideration that it won't overflow.

Portion: Serving 12 - 16 persons.

Ingredients:  Divided into 4 Groups

  • 200ml coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp Pandan juice
  • 1 tsp green colouring

4. Take 1/3 of the meringue and fold into the mixture. Do it gently.


5. Take remaining meringue and fold it in. Ensure that you do not deflate the meringue but make sure that there are no lumps left after folding in.

 6. Put batter into ungreased chiffon tin. I fill up the bigger tin (25cm) to close to 3/4 of the size and the rest into the 15cm tin.
