Light & Fluffy Pandan Chiffon Cake
What can I say?! This Pandan Chiffon cake is by far one of my all time favourites. When I posted a photo of this cake on my Facebook page I was asked by someone ‘What does Pandan taste like’. I was completely stumped by this question! I normally have a lot to say about flavours, but this question made me stop and think. I’ve grown up with the taste of Pandan, taking the gentle, subtle, fragrant flavours for granted, so in a way, my taste buds have this flavour stored deep in my life! Some will say it has a taste of vanilla, which I disagree with. I don’t think it has any resemblance to vanilla! It has a slightly earthy, musky flavour, but it is not, in my opinion, a taste you can compare to anything else I know of.
I guess, if you have ever cooked Jasmine rice, you could make a very lose comparison in aroma.
