Pandan Chiffon




A not so green Pandan Chiffon, but it's full of flavor.


I always have problem removing the cake from the tin. Look at the holes!

One of the most popular chiffon cakes would be Pandan Chiffon. It is also my very first chiffon cake I learnt to make. I didn't have a proper recipe for it since my first time baking it. I just convert the Orange Chiffon recipe to make my own Pandan Chiffon. Well, it works!




For this particular chiffon cake, I referred to one of my chiffon recipe books and fix up my own concoction, as the Japanese they don't have Pandan Chiffon in their books. The best of all, I did not use any baking powder! Which most mommies would choose not to. The cake is very moist and soft, I can't see any different from those with baking powder. I also use pure Pandan juice and never use Pandan paste from the bottle.

Ooh...pandan chiffon. One of my favorite cakes of all time! Yours look yummy! To unmould it nicely, perhaps you can try using a thin-blade knife and work round the pan slowly? It works for me :).

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you!
