Mandy and I are back to our baking routine again, this time we baked Poppy Seed & Pandan Butter cake as I were seriously craving for it during the weekend. Mandy heard that, she took out this gorgeous cake recipe and we baked together. In case you don’t know who is Mandy, she is my old time buddy known since I was 7 years old, she is also the one who shared the Buttermilk Scones recipe.

The bake together activities have been interrupted since months ago as I was so busy with the renovation and moving in. I leave it to Mandy to do the testing out alone while I am away, bad bad me :mrgreen: !!! With the new home and new oven, we resume the joy of baking together again as I am settling down. By the way, our house is only 5 minutes drive away, and we hope to do it as frequent as possible either at her kitchen or mine. Once we got the recipe tested and adapted, we will share it here.

As you can see from the photo, this 2 layers butter cake has pandan (screwpine leaves) flavor on top and poppy seed at the bottom. It is one of the best butter cakes I have ever eaten, moist and full of butter and pandan flavor, not to mention the taste and sensation when you bite on the poppy seeds. LOVE it!

Hope you will try out this recipe soon and tell me what do you think about it!

  1. This cake looks delicious. What is pandan paste and where can I find it? Thanks!

    • Good question, Terri. Pandan paste is extracted from pandan leaves, it is called screwpines leaves in the States. Unfortunately, it is not widely available fresh in the USA market but you may try to search around Asian shops. If you found the fresh leaves, use this method to extract it.
      Otherwise, you can buy the artificial flavoring from some bakery shops or in Amazon (Pandan Flavoring Paste). Please be aware that artificial flavor might not be as good as the natural flavoring.

  2. This cake looks simply exquisite

  3. I have got to try this!
