Pandan Chiffon Cake_Everyone can bake this !!!

This Pandan chiffon cake was done earlier, very ordinary chiffon, I'm sure you did better than me, I just like to keep a record in my blog for my future reference. Anyway, I changed a bit of the usual chiffon ingredients, equal volume of egg yolk and egg white(earlier I use more egg white), cake flour changed to self-raising flour, and I can see a difference after this change, the cake texture more firm compare to the previous one.

Basic Pandan Chiffon cake recipe:-

**for 20cm chiffon pan
A) 5 egg yolk (medium size), sugar 20g
B) corn oil 50g, Pandan water 70g
C) self raising flour 100g, pandan paste 1/4tsp
D) 5 egg white (medium size), sugar 70g, corn flour 10g

Simple steps:-
1. Whisk (A) till creamy
2. Add in (B) and mix well
3. Fold in (C) and mix well, set aside
4. Beat (D) till soft peak form
5. Fold in Egg white mixture into Egg yolk mixture, well combine.
6. Bake at pre-heat oven at 160c for 45mins

Do enjoy Baking !!!

Abisulian, ya, corn flour just did perfect job to replace tartar, but remember to add corn flour at the end of beating.

祝 你和家人中秋快乐 !

Palidor said...

That looks so tasty! I had never heard of pandan until I started blogging, and although I've looked, I've not been able to find pandan paste or anything pandan-related! Maybe I'm not looking in the right places.

Sonia said...

Bakeling, you too.

Palidor, actually you may omit pandan paste if you really couldn't get it, usually you can get this from the bakery ingredients shop.

Sonia said...

Rachel, Thanks for your lovely words. Happy Mid Autumn Festival to you and your family too. Cheers.

Another easy yet sophisticated dessert/afternoon tea! I always wanna try your pandan chiffon but I couldnt fine pandan leave over here... what is the next best flavour?

Colin Woon said...

Pandan Chiffon!!! My all time favorite!

Perfecting the Chiffon recipe is definitely not easy, I know because I have to eat a few of my wife's Chiffon attempts hehehe...

Any new secret flavor you're experimenting? Durian Chiffon?! Hahaha...that might be a little weird...that's why I'm not a baker!

Need yr advice. How do u get the pandan water?

Anonymous said...

Hi Sonia, so is cake flour or self-raising flour better for chiffon cake?
What is the pandan paste? Is it necessary in this recipe?

Anonymous said...

Hi Sonia, I love your blog and has been following for quite some time.
But, this is the first time I write to you.

Want to bake the chiffon this weekend.
Can I pick your advice if I use all-purpose flour in this recipe, how much salt and baking powder should I add in?

Wish you a good day!

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Liliana, try with 1/2tsp baking powder will do, sift flour and baking powder together .

Hi Sonia, if I wanna replace pandan paste with orange juice, how much should I put?

Can you please help to advise?


Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Jeslyn, if you want to make a orange chiffon, then omit the pandan paste, and replace pandan water with orange juices.
