Hi! Peng,
Hope you are coping well with your little one. I wanted to try baking a pandan chiffon cake long ago just didn't have the courage to do so. What size of baking pan are you using for this recipe? What flour should I use?

Thanks, hope to hear from you soon.

Hi! Peng, as my technique of folding the flour still not that good. Always afraid that the flour did not incorporate well in the batter/mixture. How do you fold in the flour? Not sure can we use a hand whisk?

Thanks

Hi Christina...dun worry overfold the flour, just use handwhisk and stir till batter is smooth and free of lumps. Only point to take care the egg white foam,gently fold into the batter until no white streak visible.

Hi Peng

I almost giving up this chiffon. Before my die heart of making this chiffon, Can i ask hw come the cake alway sink and internally was wet? Hw to you get the pandan juice? Can we omit this pandan juice and replace jus the pandan essense.

Wendy...i've indicated on how to extract pandan juice in the recipe already. You can use 1 tsp pandan essence but natural juice taste better. The cake is underbaked therefore it sink.
