Moving on...saw Ann posting her little pandan cupcakes this morning and also at Jess's blog. As today is the last day of participating in the Little Thumbs Up Event, I quickly rushed out to buy coconut milk to make this recipe as i was very keen to bake them. I already have some thick pandan extract at home out from some pandan juice which i extracted last week, it was kept in the fridge and i smelled them, yes, they were still fine but it was just very little, just a couple of teaspoons. Due to that, i only made a small loaf. If you are going to make a small loaf like mine, you might want to consider using milk instead of coconut milk cos it is also just a very small amount required, otherwise make a big loaf or keep the rest of the coconut milk in the freezer. I find it a very crumbly cake, at the same time very soft and comes with delicate texture..you know i got to handle it with extra care when i needed to take photos of them...i was so gentle with the cake! a very nice cake to eat, i would say, thx to all who shared the recipe.
