I love anything with pandan.

If no pandan juice, can we just use pandan paste or dilute in water to make the juice? thks

The green on your pandan cake is beautiful, and I bet the taste must be yummy too.

Hi Wendyywy, DG, Angie's Recipes and Jess,

Thanks for all your pleasant words. :)

Hi CheezyHeart,

You can use 1/2tsp of pandan paste and 1tsp of pandan essence to give a stronger pandan flavour, just mix it into the cake batter.

This must be a very flavourful, delicious cake. Looks very moist. Thanks very much for sharing.

Hi Mary Moh,

Thanks, this is indeed very delicious cake. My recipe used coconut powder instead of coconut milk so this is not so high in calories and the dessicated coconut give the cake a nice coconut flavor. I think should be the colour of the cake make it look very moist.
