I've been itch to try pandan ogura cake since I saw some fellow blogger post about this cake. Pandan Ogura cake is kind of similar to chiffon cake which the cake texture is kind of airy , the different is baking method - as we called water bath method, which there is steam needed to help cake baked. And also add a natural food color, from pandan extract. You will find the pandan leaves very easy , mostly at Asian market.
My husband like this cake, even thou he prefer butter cake which is more 'stiff' than 'airy' type of cake. And my daughter ? she was not impress by this cake Hahahaha... I think because she not fan of the color thou, she said, she will like if I using chocolate powder instead ...
I combine several recipe that I found through online, and this is recipe that I already fix here and there for my taste and work well for me. Let's give a try
