This pandan cake is easy and quick to make.  It doesn’t require fresh pandan leaves, and you may make it whenever you want in a short amount of time. Pandan is a type of green plant that is abundant in Southeast Asia. It has long, blade-like leaves and is commonly known for its fragrance. The pandan leaves are never eaten on their own; instead, they are combined with water or another liquid, and the pulp is drained to make pandan extract. This extract is frequently used to enhance flavor and provide a natural green food color. Learn how to make a moist pandan cake by following the instructions below.

Ingredients That You’ll Need

  • 3 cups of chopped pandan leaves
  • ½ cup of coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp. of water
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 2 ½ tsp. of baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup of sugar (2/3 cup if you want your cake sweeter)
  • ½ cup of oil
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla essence (if preferred)

Instructions on How To Make Moist Pandan Cake

Step 1:

What you will do first is set the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Step 2:

Next, rub 2 tablespoons of oil onto the bottom and sides of a 7-and-1/2-inch round cake pan. You can also use your fingers for this after carefully cleaning them. Then, dust the tin with 1 tablespoon of plain flour. Kindly place the flour in the center of the pan and lightly tap it while tilting it to distribute it equally at the bottom. Hold the tin upright, sprinkle the flour on the side, and then revolve it like a wheel while tapping. All of this may appear complicated, but once you get started, you’ll realize it’s fairly straightforward.

Step 3:

Pandan leaves, water, and coconut milk should all be added to a juicer and blended until the leaves are fully crushed. In a small basin, drain the mixture. A third of a cup should come out. Leave it alone.

Step 4:

Mix the baking powder and flour and place them in a bowl. Combine the eggs, sugar, and oil to achieve a creamy consistency. You can use your juice blender, hand-held electric mixer, or stand mixer for this. If you’re using a juicer, you should run it on low for around 2 minutes.

Step 5:

In a bowl, place the egg mixture. Add 4 tablespoons of flour to the egg mixture, and mix it properly. For the blending, add 2 tablespoons of pandan extract and mix everything.

Step 6:

Repeat step 5 till you run out of flour and pandan extract.  If using, add the vanilla essence and mix. The cake pan you previously prepared should now contain the mixture.

Step 7:

When the top is golden brown, a toothpick is put in the center of the pan, and comes out clean, place the pan on the middle rack of the preheated oven. This process took us 25 minutes. However, oven temperatures vary, so pay attention and adjust as needed.

Step 8:

Put the coconut milk, salt, sugar, and water in a pot and start cooking the topping while the cake bakes. Then, simmer it on low heat for a short while after thoroughly mixing everything.
