Steam Pandan Cake

I read that this Steam Pandan Cake tasted just like the chiffon cake and I was keen to attempt on this.

My first attempt was a failure, the cake did not rise well and was pretty dense.  Nevertheless, because I used concentrated home-made pandan juice, the flavour was really good.  

Thankfully, it was still edible but not good enough to present it for my hub's birthday though.

I attempted it again, this time round, I managed to succeed.  Now I am frosting it with cream cheese whipped cream and my hub gave a thumbs up for it.

Sorry dear that I could not give you a proper birthday cake on the actual day. ðŸ˜ but nevertheless that brownie served was pretty good.

 

Findings: Though the cake has no fine texture, it was light and soft.  I will definitely attempt this again.
