Pandan Chiffon Cake

Ingredients

  • 8 eggs, separate egg whites
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup liquid vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 tsp. pandan extract
  • 1 cup Self-rising flour
  • 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar

Pandan Chiffon Cake Cooking Instructions:

  • 1). Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  • 2). In a small bowl, combine coconut milk  and pandan extract. Add the 1/4 tsp. of pandan paste (or 1/4 tsp. green food coloring) to mixture if using (using the pandan paste or green food coloring is optional). Set aside.
  • 3). With an electric mixer OR by hand, beat the egg yolks, sugar, vegetable oil and vanilla until well combined. Beat in coconut milk/pandan extract mixture.
  • 4] Sift the Self-rising flour three times into a large bowl. Make a well in the center of sifted dry ingredients, and whisk egg mixture into the flour mixture.
  • 5). With an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until frothy. Add the cream of tartar and beat until firm peaks form. Fold the beaten egg whites into the flour/egg yolk mixture in two batches using a balloon whisk or rubber spatula.
  • 6). Gently pour the batter into a 9 or 10-inch (23-25 cm) ungreased tube or angel food cake pan. With a spatula, spread batter to even out top. Bake in preheated 350 degrees F (180 C) oven for 45 minutes or until the cake feels spongy to the touch.
  • 7). Remove cake from oven, and carefully invert the pan (upside down) onto a cooling rack. Do not remove cake from pan until completely cooled. Once cake has cooled, run a spatula around the sides and center tube of the pan to release the cake. When you are ready to slice the cake, use a thin sharp knife with serrated blade, and cut with a “sawing” action opposed to slicing through the cake.
  • 8). If desired, dust top of cake with confectioners’ sugar, and serve with whipped cream and fresh fruit.
  • 9). Store cake at room temperature (covered with foil or plastic wrap, or cover with a glass cake dome) for up to 3 days.
