Pandan Kaya Fudge Cake was a rave in Malaysia in 90's. This tropical harmony of coconut and agar agar makes this a sweet treat that tastes like jello but cuts like a cake. This cake will cause oohs and aahs the minute it is presented and will immediately bring smiles on the first bite.


For Pandan Chiffon Cake:

4 egg yolks
90g castor sugar
160g all-purpose flour, sifted
1/2 tsp baking powder, sift with flour
1/2 tsp baking soda, sift with flour
100 ml water
1 tsp pandan essence
50g corn oil

4 egg whites
60g sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tartar

Pandan Kaya:
900 ml. Coconut milk (i use Savoy Coconut Cream)
9 Tbsp. Hoen kwee flour / green pea flour
1 Tbsp. agar agar powder
1/2 tsp. salt
a little green colouring
a little pandan paste
180 gm. sugar
60 gm. Dessicated coconut for covering cake


To prepare pandan chiffon cake:

Add all ingredients in (A) and mix well until the mixture is smooth and consistent.

Whip egg whites and cream of tartar of Ingredients B at medium speed until the egg whites are bubbly. Add sugar and whip at high speed until stiff form but not dry.

Fold 1/3 of whipped egg whites into mixture of Step 1. Then, pour this mixture to the remaining egg whites in the other mixing bowl. Fold lightly to combine both mixtures.

Pour this combined mixture into a ungreased 9-inch round cake pan(i lined the cake tin with aluminium foil).
Bake at a preheated over at 350 deg F for 40-45 minutes.

As soon as the cake is removed from oven, quickly invert the pan and let it cool. (i invert cake on to a cake rack and place cake rack on top of a colander)

When the cake is completely cool, run a knife around the sides of pan to remove the cake(i remove the foil and tear it carefully).
Slice cake into 3 layers.(Remove the brown layer from the top of cake - that was what i forgot to do)

Method for pandan Kaya:
(1) Put all the ingredients into a pot and stir till evenly mixed.
(2) Cook over medium heat till mixture thickens and smooth. Cool slightly before using. Make sure it is still in pouring consistency.
(3) Place a slice of sponge cake into a cake ring, pour in some kaya and continue the same process till the last layer is covered with pandan kaya. Press slightly after layering the cake onto the kaya and make sure that the kaya fills the sides on the last layer.
(4) Leave aside to cool and set before chilling in the fridge.
(5) Remove cake from cake ring and cover the whole cake with dessicated coconut. If you are using an ordinary cake pan, line the cake tin before putting in the first layer of cake and when removing cake, introduce air in by folding 3 or 4 strips of paper and slipped them to the side of cake. Cake will then dislodged easily.
(6) Serve chilled.
