Here's my version. I baked an 8" cake and used a 9" cake tin when pouring the kaya but found the kaya to be insufficient. Hence the uneven sides. :lol:

Hi Mngzara

I would like to try making this Pandan Kaya Cake. I understand to assemble the cake by starting with Kaya and end with cake if I use cake tin. However, I could not figure out how to unmould the cake? Can you please advsie?

Thanks, Connie

Hi Mngzara

Thanks for your kaya recipe. I managed to make my very first Pandan Kaya Cake. After reading through other's experiences, I made some modification and cook slightly more kaya. I also used pandan juice instead of water.

500g Pandan Juice
160g Sugar
50g Butter
150g Pandan Juice
400g Coconut Milk (Yours is 250g)
90g Green Bean Powder (yours is 80g)
1 Tbsp Instant Jelly Powder (yours is 1/2 TBsp)

The taste is good but is slightly harder. Do you think I put too much Green Bean Powder and too much Instant Jelly Powder?





Thanks again for sharing.

Rgds, Connie

Hi Connie,

I do not know why your kaya is slightly harder. Base on the amt of coconut milk you put, the kaya shouldnt be hard. Maybe u can try to reduce the amt of instant jelly on your next round. I would suggest if u want to cook more kaya, you should go by percentage. Btn, I understand that there are several type/grade of instant jelly and some do not need to use so much.

I wish you success on your second kaya cake.

Hi Aifan

I did not have to do any special steps! I just turn the cake tin over the plate and the cake slide down nicely! I guess the oil from butter and coconut milk helps. If you notice, the kaya is a bit shinny/glossy due to the oil.

He he he! I was worried initially too! Embarassed

Many apologies for not responding, was quite bz.

As to the kaya, I don use agar agar powder as I don want my kaya to taste spongy like agar agar when it is set.

The kaya will be thicken but not to the extend of glue-liked state. Hence you really need quite a bit to cover the whole cake. But once its chilled, the texture of the kaya is more of hoon kueh rather than spongy feel like agar agar.

If you noticed, Bangawan Solo's kaya is not hard too.

Of coz if you use agar agar, its easier to achieve that smooth polished look, so its really up to you Smile

Hope you get what I mean, I'm not so good with words esp in describing food texture Embarassed

Made this pandan kaya cake last weekend,run out of pandan paste so only manage to get pastel green color. Hubby shake the cake too much to help me unmould the cake, so there were a few uneven marks on the side.

I tried making this cake too. Taste great and looks nice before u cut the cake. However, once the cake was cut, the layers were untidy. I think it is cos my kaya is not thick enough and the cake layers keep floating up. I was using the cake tin method, In the end, I had to put a pot to push the cake layers down. I guess that results in the untidy layers.

Will definitely try this again till I get it right. I just wonder if adding more hoon kueh will alter the texture of the kaya.

Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Does the cake ring used for assembling the cake and pouring the kaya be bigger than the cake itself? Otherwise, will the kaya drip down and cover the sides of the cake?
