I like all sorts of pandan cake, be it pandan chiffon or pandan butter cake. When I spotted this cocopandan cake from Table for 2 or more, there is no doubt at all for me to bake one since I cannot resist pandan cake.
As usually, I didn't bake it immediately, it took me more than a year before I finally have chance to make it happened lol.
Initially I thought of using coconut milk to replace the evaporated milk but finally decided to follow exactly from the recipe to try the original taste.
Recipe from here.
Ingredients : for 8" square cake pan
300g self raising flour, sifted
3/4 cup dessicated coconut
185ml concentrated pandan juice *
185ml evaporated milk
4 egg yolks (small)
4 egg whites (small)
3/4 tsp cream of tartar
* I used 8 pandan leaves and blend with water, left the juice in the fridge for 3 days to get the concentrated pandan juice. The total amount of thick layer of pandan extract and the upper layer of diluted pandan juice added up to be 185ml.
1. Preheat oven at 160C. Line and grease the cake pan.
2. Combine milk with pandan juice and set a side.
3. Beat (B) until stiff peaks form and set aside.
4. With the same beaters, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in egg yolks, one at a time, beating well and scrape the bowl after each addition.
5. Put in 1/2 portion of step 2 and beat until well combined. Put in 1/2 portion of flour and mix.
6. Put in balance of step 2 and mix, fold in the balance of flour and mix well.
7. Add in dessicated coconut and mix well.
8. Fold in beaten egg whites in additions.
9. Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 50 mins or until the skewer comes out clean.
The outer layer of the cake is a bit hard, I must have over baked the cake. The inner texture of the cake is soft and moist with the bites of dessicated coconut really delicious. The sweetness is alright for me but the sugar still can be increased a bit e.g. another 10g. Next time, I am going to try it again by using coconut milk instead.

My name is Hui Li recently asked you a number of question under Anonymous cos i can sign in my google account. I have my pandan juice ready in my fridge, about 1 cup but and nicely separated into 2 layer, so i use only the dark green bottom or together with the light green layer to get the required amount?
Hi Hui Li, yes I used both the pandan extract (the thick layer) and pandan juice (the diluted upper layer)to get the total amount.ReplyDelete
Ahhh... long time never eat this cake. hehehehe.ReplyDelete
Hmm... did u cut the cake immediately? or sometime later?
if u wait longer, the top will be softer. Usually I wait few hours before I cut my cakes. This way less crumbs too.
Hi Wendy, I cut it the next day.ReplyDelete

mind sharing,i am a first timer hope u can help n share,,thanks
Hi Gina, I used about 180ml of water if I remember correctly. You need to blend the pandan leaves with water, squeeze out the pandan juice. You can choose to use the pandan juice immediately or you can leave the pandan juice in the fridge for a few days to get the pandan essence/extract, means the bottom darker green layer of the pandan juice plus the upper layer more diluted pandan water.Delete
Jess, check with you, the 3/4 cup dessicated coconut, the 1 cup = how many gram?ReplyDelete
Hi I am not too sure as I didn't weigh it but may b u can aga aga?Delete
