    I tried this cake today, forgot to put coconut in the mould, and didn’t put pandan paste cos cannot open the cap, haha… Thank goodness turn out still not that bad…hee :-). I’m so clumsy, combined 3 and 4 together instead of sifting the flour in slowly. Thanks for your recipe. Tomorrow will be better.
