The Pandan Cake Recipe

Ingredients

*130g Cake Flour

*80g Plain Flour

*6g (1 1/2 tsp) Baking Powder

*3g (1/2 tsp) Baking Soda

*3g Salt: 3gms

210g Fine Granulated Sugar

100g-105g Large Eggs: 2 (room temperature)

*70g Unsalted Butter Room temperature

*60ml Vegetable Oil

*85g Yoghurt or Sour Cream

*3g (1/2 tsp) Organic Pandan powder

*200ml Whole Milk




Method :-

(1) Preheat oven to 305°F (150°C).

(2)Grease and line three 5-inch cake pans with baking spray and grease 3 cake heating core and set them aside. ·

(3) Place cake flour, plain flour, pandan powder, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt into the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and mix on low to combine. ·

(4) Add the room temperature butter and mix on low until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs (Reverse creaming method).·

(5) In a separate bowl, add in the eggs, vegetable oil, yoghurt, pandan extract, whole milk and pandan powder mix until combined and heat in the microwave for 1min until it just warms and set aside.

(6) Add two-thirds of the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and mix on low medium speed until just combined. Add the remaining wet ingredients and mix well until combined and the batter is smooth. Do not overmix the batter and do not forget to scrape down the bowl.·

(7) Divide the batter between the 3 grease and line pans. Weigh them for more accuracy. (360-370gms per pan).

(8) Place the nail cake heating core in the centre of each cake pan. A nail cake heating core is used to help cook the middle part of the cakes at the same time as the outer edge. This can help you to get even baked cake and more puff on the cake.·

(9) Bake for 30 -40 minutes or until a toothpick or wooden skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean with a few moist crumbs. (refers to the things to keep in mind)·

(10) Remove from the oven and allow the cakes to cool completely in the pans set on a wire rack.

(11) Once the cakes are cool, invert them into the wire rack. Cover in cling wrap and refrigerate till you’re ready to decorate2)

About Fellia - Bloom Flowercakes

Pandan cake is the best | My Blue Tea
The Pandan Cake with Roselle Buttercream

Kopisanangan ! (Hii there) I'm Fellia Lucas, the owner, maker, and cake decorator behind Bloom’s Flower Cake. I am a self-taught baking enthusiast who, growing up, enjoyed baking and cooking a lot. In the beginning, it was just a hobby, but then it grew and became addictive, and now sharing the passion I have for baking has proudly become my daily task. All of this began as a dream when I saw this realistic buttercream Flower cake on the YouTube channel (ggcakcraft) back in 2017. This suddenly sparkles and booms; it's blooming after I take this offline class. You may follow Fellia, Bloom Flowercakes via her Instagram and FB Page - Bloom's Flowercake.


Since then, I've been practising a lot, taking a few online classes, and flying back to Malaysia to take a personal intensive advanced course. I spent countless hours of trial and error before I was satisfied with my creation. My task doesn't end here; I'm also a full-time mom. The pressure of feeling stuck at home with my daughter is challenging. I adore being a mom. I love my still-little baby, but the endless amount of housework and the list goes on is a challenge.


This role of creating beautiful, realistic buttercream Flower cake is giving me the chance to do something that I genuinely enjoy. It also gives me the opportunity to ‘lead by example’ and to show my children what it is like to work on something that you absolutely love and that has meaning that you can be proud of. Having an incredibly supportive family is another blessing for me.


Thank you to my husband; he is my solid rock of never-ending support. I am always grateful that I can transform my interest into a career. It truly is a blessing to have a job that is so satisfying. This world is unpredictable; someday everything makes perfect sense, and someday it just doesn't. Anyway, if you are struggling with life choices as you're reading this now, do not be afraid to open to any potential possibility, because it's often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock! I hope telling you My Story of How It Blooms here will inspire you to do anything you wish, even in the smallest way. Laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears, and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason, and finally, sometimes it is ok not to be okay!·



Tips by Fellia Lucas - Things to keep in mind

· Use a kitchen scale.

· Use room temperature ingredients.

· Make sure your baking powder and baking soda are fresh.

· Sift dry ingredients.

· Do not overmix. Mix only until all ingredients are incorporated. Overmixing will result in dense cakes.

· Do not overbake. Overbaking will result in losing moisture from your cake and cracks on the surface. Keep a close watch on your baking times and closely check your cake for indications of doneness. Because oven temperatures can vary, it is best to start checking your cake a few minutes before the earlier bake time listed in my recipe, following up every couple of minutes.

· Often Opening and closing the oven door before

· Overmixing your batter, ingredients not being at room temperature and/or over-greasing your cake pans can result in greasy cakes.

· Overheating milk can also result in a greasy cake.

· For best results by baking, it straight after mixing the wet and dry ingredients. The rising agent gets activated as soon as you mix the wet and dry ingredients.

· To avoid large air pockets, use a paddle attachment and tap your cake pans on the counter to dissipate air bubbles.·
