One of my favourite recipe adapted from my dear friend's blog (Bake with Paws) with a slight modification to the original version.
My family and I are a great fan of chiffon cakes, especially pandan flavour. After a few failed attempts, I'm grateful that I finally succeeded in baking a good chiffon cake with the guidance of my dear friend, YL! Also whenever there's a cake baking session, my youngest son would love to accompany me as he love sifting the flour and I'm glad he enjoyed doing it all the time.
If you're wondering what is pandan, it is a tropical plant, which is known for its long blade-like leaves. The leaf has a distinctive refreshing fragrant which is widely for flavouring in Southeast Asia cuisines and it's so versatile that it can be made into delectable sweet treats or savoury dishes.
