Pandan Butter Cake
I was really excited when I found pandan paste in the chinese grocery shop here two weeks ago. I had been searching for the paste here.
Just to let you know how excited I was : I woke up at 6.30am today to bake :)
I found this simple pandan butter cake recipe at Aunty Yochana site. I do not have ovalette here so I used the recipe without ovalette with some modifications:
250 gm. butter
200 gm. sugar
1 Tbsp. Kaya ( I omitted this as I do not have Kaya here)
6 nos. eggs
300 gm. cake flour
1 tsp. baking powder
200 gm. coconut milk
1/4 tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. milk powder ( I omitted this as well)
1 tsp. pandan paste
a drop of green colouring ( I omitted this)
1. Cream butter and sugar till creamy. Add in Kaya.
2. Add in egg one at a time and make sure it's properly mixed before adding in another egg. Pour in coconut milk and salt slowly and if it cuddles, put in some flour. Add in pandan paste and some green colouring.
3. Fold in cake flour, milk powder and baking powder and then pour into a 9" sq. tray and bake at 175C for about 60 mins ( The recipe call for a 7" sq tray. But this is a big cake. I used a 9" but I think an 8" would be just right)
