Mother and daughter share their love for Pandan
Emily and her mother both adore Pandan. On Mother's Day, Emily always makes her mother Pandan muffins. The only thing is, Emily came to Australia to study and she loved it so much she stayed on, but her mother, Lisa, is in Hong Kong (one of our favourite cities!). So Emily has been getting her stock of Pandan from My Blue Tea to make her mother's favourite treat. She continues to send Lisa her pack of yummy PANDAN goodness filled with oodles of love without fail, every Mother's Day.
Today, Emily shares her recipe for Pandan muffins with us. Perhaps it would make for a nice treat for someone else's Mother too! Emily and Lisa have always enjoyed baking together and we first featured them a few years ago when they shared with us their gorgeous Purple Sweet Potato Soufflé.
