Pandan Coconut Cake

My hands are itching to do some baking. I've not baked in my oven for more than a week! The days have been really very busy since last week. This week, the days are equally bad. My days are filled with meetings that lasted till later than my office hours. By the time I reached home, it was late already.

Cannot take it any longer, I decided to do some simple baking this evening, even though I was home much later than usual. Pulling out Alex Goh's Creative Making of Cakes, I've decided to bake Pandan Coconut Cake, just to satisfy my craving for bakings.

3. Fold in (C) and mix till well blended.
4. Pour it into 10"x10" cake pan. [Original was 10" round cake pan. I used 10x10 cake pan because I want a flatter cake.]

6. Bake at 175C for 45mins.
7. Cooled and serve.

Hi Grace,
Oh yes, I managed to squeeze some time to do some baking. Otherwise, I'll feel so guilty for my oven. The coconut was really very nice, the pandan & coconut combination is almost like kaya already! Hahaha...

Hi Stanley,
You may have to 2.5x the original recipe to fit the pan size you want. The baking time may be increased up to 70mins.
Please note that this is only an estimate. You may have to try it out ourself to get a better timing. Hope this helps.
