Simple Recipe - Muara Cawang Indonesian Pandan Cake

My maid taught my daughter to make this Muara Cawang Indonesian Pandan Cake. I named the cake after her village, Muara Cawang in Sumatera, Indonesia. Since it is kampung(village) style cooking there is no exact measurement of the ingredients. The cake tasted a bit like Bak Chien Kuih (Chinese Pancakes) and it is different from our normal pandan cake. I think if we add a bit of kaya on the top the type will be very nice. Ingredients Flour, 1 bowl Castor Sugar, ¾ bowl (Add more sugar if you want it to be sweeter) Eggs, 4 Soda Bicarbonate, ½ teaspoon Butter, 2”x2”x 2” Pandan(screw pine) leaves, 7 pcs Put sugar and butter into a big bowl and beat it until the batter turns white and fluffy. Add egg and continue to beat the batter. Slowly add the flour and soda bicarbonate; beat well. Blend pandan leaves using a blender and squeeze out the juice. Heat up the pandan juice and bring to a boil. Pour the boiling hot pandan juice into the batter mixture so that bubbles will form to make the cake fluffy (The Indonesians are good at using alternative ways to make the cake fluffy instead of using baking powder). Put mixture in baking pan (greased with butter and sprinkled with a little flour so that the cake will not stick). Bake in oven 150 Deg C for 40 minutes.

Josephine : taste ok larr.

Misti : Aiyo, poor girl. I will find you a chef boyfriend. LOL

Calvin : Bro, I also wonder what happen to the green colour. I think it is because we use natural pandan, so the colour not too strong. Should taste good if eat with kaya, yummy.
