Gina,
Do you have recipe for the Pandan Kaya cake (just like the one selling in Bengawan Solo)? Thinking of baking this for my hubby's coming birthday.

Thanks.

Hi,

I do have the recipe. But personally, I have not tried it yet. Its from my mom's big folder of cakes and pastries. I find it rather difficult. Difficult becoz I still consider myself as a novice in baking. All the recipes that I shared here are tried and tested and I know it works.

I can get it for you..and post it here.

Karen

thanks for helping too. My mom's recipe is in Chinese and everything is measure in kati!

It will take me a while to decipher what she wrote and how to translate that into English.

And the worst is, i don't even know if it works or not.

Kaya Pandan Cake

Ingredients:
345g optima flour (flour w sugar, avail in ntuc, giant, carrafour & SC, prima brand)
6 eggs
1 tsp ovalette (to make the cake more spongy, orangy color)
2.25 oz water
85g melted butter (slightly heat in microwave oven until watery)
1 tsp pandan essence (add some green essence if your pandan essence is colorless)

Kaya Topping:
1140 ml water
400ml coconut (packet type)
340 gm sugar
1 pkt Hoon Kueh powder
1 tbsp gelatine powder
2 tsp pandan essence

Method:
Beat optima flour, egg and ovalette on high speed until moussse like (able to hold on spoon when overturned)
Add 2 tsp pandan essence
Detach bowl from mixer and add in melted butter (can substitute with same amount of corn oil)
Bake at 170 deg or gas mark 7 for 35 min.

When cake is cooled, slice the cake into half

Kaya
Mix all the ingredient in a bowl, stir well and heat over low heat until jelly form

Assembling:

Spread some kaya in the middle layer of the cake
Pour the kaya in a measuring cup, slowly pour the kaya over the centre top of the cake, with the back of a soup scoup, spread the kaya over the cake in circular clockwise motion. Let the kaya drop naturally to the sides of the cake

You may want to decorate with dessicated coconuts on the sides of the cake.

Chill in fridge.

You can use your own spong cake receipe, just add pandan essence to make it green if you find troublesome to buy optima flour & ovalette.

its Green bean powder..its packed in a white paper and shaped into a roll. You can find this at supermarkets in the baking items section.

If its too difficult to buy optima flour & ovalette, you can actually use the Prima premix for sponge cake, my friend tried and said result is about the same. Just make sure you add pandan essence into your cake mixture.

I think the key point for this cake is the kaya spread.

I couldn't find the "Prima Premix for sponge cake" in NTUC. Can only find the normal flour like plain flour, bread flour.

Do you replace the "Prima Premix" for "Optima flour AND ovalette"? Do I have to add sugar?

I also saw "Cake flour". Are they the same?

maybe you can try getting it from Phoon Huat stores. They will definitely have their own blend of Sponge cake mix. Or you can ask their sales assistants on what kind of flour you can use to make sponge cake.

to find out the nearest Phoon Huat store near your place:

My mum like pandan kaya cake, intend to make one for her this weekend. What is size of cake pan should i use? 20cm? 23cm?
If I use PH's sponge pre-mix, i will need to add pandan essence right?
I saw other recipe add pandan juice plus pandan essence, is pandan juice necessary for this case? please advise.

hi,

haven't baked this before,

but i think the recipe mixed both pandan essence and pandan juice in order to control the amount of liquid in the cake.

Because it would take a lot of pandan juice to have the flavor and colour of pandan to come out in your cake. That much liquid could result in a dense cake.

Jennifer, I used pandan paste instead of pandan essence in the spongecake mixture which I find is better.
