Pandan chiffon cakes are known for their softness and fluffiness. Pandan is often used in the South East Asian Cuisine as how vanilla

Chiffon cake is like a dream cake - a sweet dream! It is fluffy, soft and moist. My all time favourite is that which uses the extract from pandan leaves which is also known as screwpine leaves. If you are lucky enough to secure them, extract the juice from the fresh pandan leaves. Alternately, look for those that are prepacked and sold at the asian grocer in your area. Of course, you can always replace it with orange/lemon juice, vanilla, coffee or any flavour of your preference! The crucial part when making this cake is to ensure that the cake does not collapse. To prevent that from happening, the egg whites need to be beaten till it is really stiff and each step needs to be done carefully. Take time to watch the video to understand the steps. Believe me, I tried taking some short cuts only to fail miserably. So, take your time. Once the cake has cooled, store it in an air tight container. It should be able to keep well for 3 days. However, I bet that it would be gone within a day or at the very most, two!
