Hi Wenn,

If you can bake a simple butter cake then this should have no problem.
Practice make perfect. :)

Hi Anonymous,

Use the Orange Butter Cake recipe which you can find it under the butter cake recipe. Replace the orange juice with 1/2 padan juice and 1/2 milk or adjust to your own prefer. Remember to add in pandan paste to give it a stronger pandan flavor.
