Hi Somewhere in Singapore,

Same for me, lazy... so once in a while I will use freshly squeeze coconut milk. I find that the taste and smell of Pandan Chiffon Cake using freshly squeeze coconut milk is really fantastic.:)

hi there, your pandan chiffon cake looks so nice(: i just baked one, but when i remove the pan, the bottom of the chiffon cake caved in. Can i know what is the reason? and when i tried to cut it, the chiffon cake was squashed!

Hi Yin,

I used about 60-65g egg without shell.

Hi Bernice,

Your egg white was not beat properly. Egg white should whisk until about stiff peak. Do try again.

Hi Happy Flour,

I love Pandan Chiffon cake!! I have one doubt about chiffon cake...Is that compulsory to use tube pan? how bout the normal spring form or round pan?

Happy Flour said...

Hi Vicky 2074,

Yes, chiffon cake has to use tube pan. If you use normal cake pan, the cake will collapse after baking.

Hi,
Can you explain what the is pandan juice and pandan paste and where do you get it from please?

Happy Flour said...

Hi Anonymous,

Extract juice from pandan leaves to get Pandan juice. You can buy pandan leaf from supermarket or wet market.

Pandan paste is a kind of essence which has pandan flavor and colouring included in it. You can get pandan paste from bakery mart.
