Pandan and Coconut Steamed Cake

Pandan or Pandanus amaryllifolius one kind of tropical plant. The plant is rare in the wild but is widely cultivated. It is an upright green plant with fan-shaped sprays of long, narrow, blade like leaves and woody aerial roots. The plant is sterile, flowers only very rarely, and is propagated by cuttings.

used widely in Southeast Asian cooking as a flavoring-wikipedia

Beside can give such a nice flavoring in foods, some kind of pandan can give beautiful natural green color, I just love it.

This pandan we can plant it either on garden yard or inside pot. Too bad I don't have it in my home here. I have no idea even if I can bring this plant here, whether it can survive in 4 season country like Turkey. I remember my mom plants this pandan in pot at our house in Indonesia.

Last time my friend brought me pandan paste from Indonesia and give me 1 small bottle. I was so happy cause I miss it's fragance and I miss some Indonesian food (mostly dessert and cake) using this pandan falvor...

So here it is my 1st Pandan cake in Turkey @(^,^)@

You can try to find this pandan paste in Asian grocery store in your country/ city, maybe you'll get lucky to have one...

 Ingredients A:
• ¾ cup grated coconut (fresh or dried)
• 2 tablespoons caster sugar

Ingredients B:
• 3 medium eggs
• ¾ cup caster sugar
• 1 cup + 2 tablespoons flour
• 1 tablespoon cornstarch
• 1 tsp vanilla powder
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
• pinch of fine salt
• 1 ½ tsp pandan paste
• 100 gr unsalted butter, melted and mixed with ½ cup olive oil


1) Prepare bundt pan 1 ½ liters capacity, basting with margarine and set aside. Heat water in a steamer pot over medium heat to produce enough steam.

2) Mix the ingredients A, set aside. Sift and mix together: flour, baking powder,vanilla powder, cornstarch and salt. Set aside.

3) Beat eggs and sugar until pale and fluffy. Gradually fold in flour mixture alternately with melted butter, fold nicely until all well blended.

4) Take 1 cup of the batter and mix with material A. Pour into bundt pan and steam ± 5 minutes. Give pandan paste to the remaining batter,fold nicely until blended through. Pour the batter over the whites, continue steaming until cooked about 45 minutes. Check with a skewer, if the stick comes out clean, means the cake is ready to remove from the steamer.

Enjoy you pandan coconut cake ^,^
