Pandan Chiffon Cake

During my recent trip back home during the summer, I bought myself 2 tube pan for making chiffon cake.  But then while packing I realized that I am hitting overweight, so had to leave the pans and a few others, hoping someone would be able to bring it down on the next opportunity.  True enough I got my goods not long after and finally made them.

As the name calls Pandan Chiffon Cake, it calls for pandan juice but I did not have sufficient pandan leaves to make juice so I ended with the no so natural pandan essense.

I was really surprised at the outcome as this was the first time I made them.  They turned out perfectly well which is not only moist and soft, they had a nice pandany aroma.  Lets look at some of the pictures that I have taken before you look at the recipe courtesy of www.nyonyafood.rasamalaysia.com
