Pandan Chiffon

29.07.2020 - Pandan chiffon is so common. Its readily available almost anywhere.  Someone said to do chiffon cakes, one cant omit pandan chiffon.  OK, I hear you loud and clear and since its Singapore's iconic cake, I will at least bake it to see the difference but need 2 days to bake a cake is really stretching my patience.  Anyway, this is my pandan chiffon using pure pandan extract.

Honestly, I think I prefer version with pandan paste, so do my neighbors.  Well, taste is very subjective and its a personal preference.

This recipe was adapted from Diana Gale.
