Mini Pandan Butter Cake

68 comments

Today is the last day of the month of September 2013.  Have you noticed that during this month, many bloggers have posted recipes using pandan leaves and mostly all the pictures are in green colour too? Yes, it's for the Little Thumbs Up event which is hosted by Joceline,Butter, Flour or Me. So here I'm sharing this Mini Pandan Butter Cake on the last day of the LTU event. I adapted this recipe for Pandan Butter Cake that Angie from My Mum's Cake House had shared with us last week. I baked the cake into mini sizes using the small muffin pan and mini donut pan. I'm very pleased with the end result. This pandan fragrant small cake has a little crust on top and the texture is soft even though it is a little crumbly. So good to serve with a cup of tea and I just can't stop but to grab a second one after the first.





Mini Pandan Butter Cake


    Ingredients: makes 36
     180g Butter, room temperature
     80g Caster sugar
     2 Eggs, 65g, lightly beaten
     45g Pandan extract (follow the instruction below to make pandan extract)
     35g Coconut milk
     220g Self raising flour
     1 tsp Baking powder


     Method:
  • Combine pandan extract and coconut milk together and mix well. (Is ok if you don't get enough 45g of pandan extract, just top up with coconut milk.)
  • Cream butter and sugar until light. Gradually add beaten egg into mixture and beat until fluffy at medium speed.
  • Sieve in all the self raising flour, baking powder and coconut milk mixture. Gently fold well the mixture with a rubber spatula.
  • Spoon mixture into into small cupcake liner or lightly greased/cooking spray on small muffin pan.
  • Bake at preheated oven at 165 degrees C for about 12 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer.
  • Best to serve warm. Store the small cakes in an airtight container and re-heat for 8-10 minutes before consuming.


   To make pandan extract (I'm following the method from Zoe, Bake for Happy Kids)




  • Using a kitchen scissor, snip 20 fresh pandan leaves into small pieces.
  • Place them into a blender in 3 batches with 50ml water each time. (total 150ml water or add little more of water if you find the pandan leaves are still too dry to process)
  • Place blitzed pandan into a small disposable soup bag and squeeze out the pandan juice.
  • Leave pandan juices in the fridge overnight.
  • The juice will separate into two distinct layers. Remove the top clear liquid layer and use the deep green colour sediment as concentrated pandan extract.
  • Do not freeze the extract as it will lose its fragrance after freezing and thawing.


I am submitting this to the Little Thumbs Up "Pandan" event organized

Hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

  27. I can't believe the month of September has slipped by so quickly, Ann. And yes, I have seen all the lovely recipes that include Pandan as an ingredient. As a matter of fact, I am so intrigued I am going to inquire at the Asian store in State College to see if they have it in stock. In the meantime, I will have to imagine nibbling at your minis in my dreams. They sure look like a perfect delicacy to enjoy with a cup of tea. (have another for me:)


    Thank you so much for sharing, Ann...

  31. Ann, these cakes are so beautiful! They look so soft and fluffy too! Yummylicious! I wonder when will I have the courage to bake birthday cakes as it comes with such a big responsibility......

  32. Ann, I posted my comment yesterday did you receive it? What is the texture of these cakes? Are they like muffin or soft and cottony like chiffon cakes? By the way, where to buy soup disposal bag? If I don't have one can I use a sieve? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ai Li, Sorry no, I didn't received your comment yesterday. Thanks for commenting again.
    This cake is not really soft like chiffon cake. The texture is like butter cake and crumbly. Best is to toast the small cakes the next day as you can feel the crust on top.
    Better to use a bag to squeeze out the pandan juice, faster and easier. Can get the bag at Daiso or any grocery shop.

  34. Helena, 辛苦了! 好好好!一定请你吃 :D

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thanks Ann for the reply! Toast as in the toaster not oven is it? Appreciate it!

  47. Hi Ann,

    Good that we have been eating lots of "greens" this month... This means that we are healthier? - LOL!

    I have learned to appreciate pandan so much after this month and I like that it is an amazing ingredient... making your little cakes looking so lovely.

    Ann, my cake turned out soft and moist after 2 days, so although I didn't bake it successful, it still tasted nice :D. I love you baking the cake in the donut tray, looks so cute and inviting.

    1. Hi Vannterline,
      Yes you can use about 2 tsp of pandan paste but the taste will not be so natural. BTW this cake is quite crumbly after baked.
      Happy Baking!
