Pandan Chiffon Cake 班蘭戚風蛋糕

My first blog post in 2018 is also my 200th blog post! I have never thought I would have the perseverance to continually photograph and blog about my baking adventure for more than three years! Thank you for all my readers who have been supporting, reading and baking along with me.

This pandan chiffon cake was my last cake I baked in 2017. It was made with a combination of pandan leaves (for flavor) and pandan essence (for color). It is not easy to have access to fresh pandan leaves in Toronto so I usually use frozen ones purchased from my local Asian grocery store. I do have another pandan cake recipe prepared with the Tang Mian method. Feel free to read about my blog post, Pandan Coconut Chiffon Cake.

Pandan Chiffon Cake

For 7” tube pan


80 g cake and pastry flour
4 large eggs, separated
40 g grapeseed oil
70 g milk
60 g granulated sugar
10 fresh or frozen pandan leaves
1/2 tsp pandan essence (optional)
1/2 tsp cream of tartar

Notes: The eggs I use are about 50 g each without shells.


低筋麵粉 80克
大蛋(分開蛋白和蛋黃) 4隻
葡萄籽油 40克
牛奶 70克
細砂糖 60克
班蘭葉(新鮮或急凍) 10塊
班蘭香油(可省略) 1/2茶匙
他他粉 1/2茶匙


Directions 做法

Separate the eggs and place the egg whites In a clean mixing bowl (I usually wipe the bowl and the wire beater with paper towel dampened with vinegar or lemon juice to remove traces of grease). Preheat oven to 325ºF/160ºC.

Rinse pandan leaves then cut off the bottom white parts. Cut leaves in small pieces with a pair of scissors. Add leaves and milk into a blender then pulse for one minute. Strain mixture through a fine strainer while using the back of a spoon to press on the pulp to extract the juice. Measure 60 g of the pandan-milk mixture then set aside.

Place sifted flour into another mixing bowl. Make a well in the center then pour in the oil, pandan-milk mixture, pandan essence and egg yolks. Whisk gently until incorporated. Set aside.
低筋麵粉過篩放入另一鋼盆中,中開一穴後倒入油、班蘭牛奶 、班蘭香油和蛋黃,輕手用蛋拂攪拌均勻成蛋黃糊備用。

With a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar (to stabilize the meringue) and continue beating until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar in batches and continue beating until glossy and firm peaks form. When you lift up the whisk, the peak will hold its shape but the tip will fall back slightly.

Scoop about one third of the meringue into the yolk mixture and fold with a whisk to lighten. Then scrape this back into the bowl of meringue. Fold gently and thoroughly (so you don’t deflate the meringue) with a spatula until homogeneous.

Pour batter into an unprepared tube pan. Tap pan against the kitchen countertop several times to get rid of any large air bubbles. Smooth top with an offset spatula.

Bake for 10 minutes until a skin forms on the cake surface. Take the cake out and make three to four slits with a greased knife with thin blade. Continue baking for 20 to 25 minutes more or until a wooden skewer inserted in the center of cake comes out clean. Every oven is different so adjust baking time accordingly. Drop cake pan on the kitchen countertop at a distance upon removal from the oven. This will release any gas trapped in the cake cells and minimize shrinkage. Invert pan on a wire rack to cool completely before unmolding.

I doubled the recipe and made this chiffon cake with my 10″ Nordic Ware angel food cake pan.
這蛋糕用了Nordic Ware的10寸天使蛋糕模,使用雙倍份量剛剛好。
