Recipe: Pandan Layer Cake

Anyone still here?

Pardon that I've been too busy with work, home reno and wedding planner that I've no time for this space. :/

Also thanks to Dayre and Instagram, they are so much easier to update on the go then blogging here! :P 

Anyway, I've been wanting to share this recipe for the longest time! 

Pandan Layer Cake - not something new, if you do a simple Google, you'll probably find lots of them on the internet. 

With Mother's Day coming up soon, it's a good recipe to try baking for your dearest mother! ^^

I baked a pandan flavour and one of durian! :D 

I modified from the yam layer cake recipe that I've shared a while back. :)
ps: Mr Tan tried to bake this for my birthday too! Haha! Read about it here. ^^

4. Pour the batter into a lined 8" round tin.

6. Let the cake cool on a rack before removing from the pan. Slice into 3 equal slices horizontally when cooled.

2. Let the cake cool to room temperature before refrigerate for overnight. 
3. Remove the cake ring and decorate with desiccated coconut as desired. 

Durian flavour is quite complicated. I'll keep it for next time! :P
