Fluffy & Soft Pandan Chiffon Cake (Bolu Pandan)

Pandan is a type of leaf that is very famous in South East Asia, it’s also called Screw pine leaves. it’s basically like vanilla but in green color. It’s so aromatic and its fragrance is so nice and calming. Usually you can make Pandan chiffon cake using Pandan juice. But since It’s not very easy for me to find it here, I use Pandan extract instead. The texture of the cake is soft and fluffy, thanks to the butter. I hope you enjoy the cake in your break time together with a nice cup of coffee or tea. Happy baking!
