Pandan Chiffon Cake
When I was a teenager, my sister-in-law taught me how to make chiffon cake.
I love all kinds of chiffon cake, be it Pandan, orange or coffee. However, my absolute favorite chiffon cake recipe is Pandan Chiffon Cake.
Pandan leaf (screwpine leaf) is widely used in Malaysia, and this chiffon cake is infused with the sweet fragrance of fresh Pandan juice.
What is Chiffon Cake?
Chiffon Cake is the Asian version of Angel Cake.
The cake has a soft and cottony texture, every bite is so light and fluffy because there is no butter or cream cheese in the recipe.
Chiffon cake is absolutely delicious. It’s also simple and easy to make the cake.
How to Serve Chiffon Cake?
You can serve the cake as is but it’s best served with vanilla ice cream.
