Easy Pandan Muffin

Michelle ask to make her a pandan chiffon cake.
I already made one for her on Friday.
Not thinking of making another one.
I am too lazy to wash the beater.
Instead of making chiffon, I made this pandan coconut muffin for her.
A really simple and easy way of making.

Ingredients :
  • 1 1/2 cups self raising flour
  • 1/2 cup fine sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 65 ml corn oil
  • 100 ml coconut milk
  • 6 pandan leaves add with 130 ml water (Blend pandan leaves and water in a blender. Strain to discard pulp).
Method :
  1. P
reheat oven to 180C. Line paper cups on a muffin tray, set aside.
  • In a bowl, lightly beat the eggs and sugar.
  • Add in pandan extr
  • act, coconut milk, oil, salt and mix well.
  • Slowly pour in sieved flour into the mixture, mix well.
  • Scoop the mixture into the muffin cups until 2/3 full.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a light brown crust appear or cracks out of the muffin top.

  • while baking, i found something funny. What is this little girl trying to do ? hehe... she always doing something wierd.
    This especially try out again for Sue. Hope she will get it right for the next attempt. Good luck!

      must very delicious one

    4. 鲸鱼蓝蓝蓝: 谢谢你。

      Pynn, 一种简单容易的食谱。懒惰时可以派上用场。

      Rachel, 发才好吗。我很怕它不发叻。呵呵。。

    5. if no demand, do also nobody wants to eat, at least you received a lot of demands, hehehe..she is really cute girl.

    6. thank you for this recipe, I put the translator And, I'm happy, I think I can find all the ingredients, I can not wait to try

    7. Sonia, Ya true. But the muffin tasted a bit hard after the next day.

      Colargol, Went to ur blog. It is so lovely. Thanks for coming :)

    8. inside of the muffin is a bit moist unlike sponge cake right?and can i know if u made it using a mixer or just use hand to mix and blend the batter?i am totally new to baking,would like to learn to be a fantastic baker like u jane :-)

    9. mimimama, yes, it is not like sponge cake but texture should be soft moist inside but crunchy outer layer. I just used a hand risk but not electrical beater. Actually i am not a good baker :) For own consume and sharing my experienced still ok but not till the standard like many others blogger friends I met :)

    10. you're just being humble :-)ok then i got it right :-) tks for sharing jane, take care, God bless!

    11. Hi Jane, thanks for sharing this recipe. I have made pandan muffins but using cupcake mould. The fragrant is very good. However, My muffins didn't rise high or "huat" like yours. May I know after adding sifted flour to wet ingredient, am I suppose to stir the batter until smooth and no more lumps or just combine like a muffin method?

    12. Sue, I just combined like muffin method. My friend just made this last 2 days too. Her one rise higher than mine. Haha.... Looks like 3 hands came out 3 results :)

    13. Hi Jane, I mixed it till some small lump left. So probably have over mixed. That's explain why my muffins didn't rise much. Will try again. The batter is pretty watery, right? Also, is your 1 cup of flour =125g? I know different country using different cup size.

    14. Sue, the batter is not watery. I just weight the flour with the measuring cup and it is 160g. I think that is why ur batter is watery and the muffin not rising. You are smart enough to ask this as i dint think about it at all. I think i must made some amendment on my metrix measurement which i actually copy from cooking book :(

    15. Hi Jane, you mean one cup of your self-raising flour is 160g? Please confirm. I hope to get it right in my next attempt. My 4year old son, who is usually not interested in cake, surprisingly asked me for a piece of pandan muffin when he saw me eating! He must be attracted by the pandan fragrant. Fortunately the muffin is soft and moist and taste like 米发糕! My son gave a thumb up! Haha because he didn't know what should be the texture of a muffin! I believe most Chinese can't resist pandan flavor pastry.

    16. Sue, ya just did my 2nd weighing. Is around 150-160g per cup. If u can wait for me then i will try it tomorrow and giv u the exactly measurement in grams.

    17. Sue, cant wait to try for u again. Am baking now. Only did 1/3 of the portion. 80g self raising flour, 30g sugar,pinch of salt, 22g corn oil, 33ml coconut milk, 40ml pandan juice. Will post the result for u in short while.

    18. Good morning, thanks for your help. Look forward to the result of your muffin. 你真行,会烘培这么多糕点,连老婆饼都会做,佩服佩服!

    19. Jane..i tried this recipe and this time sucessfully made this turns out to be really nice, soft on the inside and a bit crunchy on the outside, with the nice coconut n pandan smell - i used pandan paste though....the next day it is still nice, i heat it up in the microwave for a while. Thanks for all the tips too, Jane!!

    20. Sue, u saw the last photo in this post? Only made 4 cups yest night. Hope u got the same result :)
      lao po bing actually not hard to make. Bread n toast more difficult.

    21. Winda, happy to hear that. How's ur egg tarts? Hope it turns out good too :)

    22. egg tart finally turn out OK, because u are the suhu/guru hehe...i was trying to recall things that u did when show me how to do it last yr - wow a long time ago yaa, then i gave it a try....thanks again!!

    23. Hi Jane, thanks a lot. I will try out next week. Have a nice weekend!

    24. Hi Jane, I have baked again yesterday and this time all muffins rose very well. Thanks a lot for being so helpful.

    25. Dear sue, Hooray! Happy to share ur good news :)

    26. Hi Jane,

      I tried this originally using the cups measurement, think maybe like Sue, the cup measurement is different from yours. My muffins is very like a dense kueh texture.

      Saw your measurement for Sue by weight. I will try that soon.

      Want to clarify.
      - Corn oil - is it 22 g or 22 ml?
      - I presume you use 1/3 egg for the one you put in weight for Sue.
      - For the egg, do you use a large egg (weigh 60g with shell) or medium egg (weigh 55g with shell)?


    27. Hi Jane,

      For step 2 and step 3, both has sugar. Pls clarify is there a typo?

    28. Hanushi, sorry to hear that :(
      But nvm, i know u will be succeed next round. Thanks for informing my typer error. Ady amended.
      For the oil i used gram not ml but not different a lot.
      I used 60g egg.

    29. Thanks Jane!! I try again and let you know. :)

    30. Hi Jane,

      Thanks for sharing the new measurements. I tried it today using the new measurements you did... This time the muffins are very successful. The result is crunchy top and the inside is very soft! I am so happy!

      Mine looks similar to the photo that you last posted (for Sue).I did not manage to get the first photo that you posted (with crack on top that looks like very huat).

      How did you do it? Hehe...

    31. sue, happy to hear that u success ady. Aiyo! the 1st one nice meh? i personally like the bottom one. How to do? I also dun know lei, it just came out like that automatically o... haha....

    32. Hi Jane,

      haha, I think you confuse me with Sue.

      Yah, the first pic "huat" till very pretty. I am now addicted to muffin bakes. Ha... :)

    33. This comment has been removed by the author.

    34. hanushi, sorry for the mix up. I reply the comments till blur ady. hehe... and now u can bake it everyday :)
      Actually muffin is very easy. As long as not over mix it, u will get a good texture. You can play around the recipe with the ingredients u have in hands. May be u will come up with something amazing.

    35. Hi Jane,
      May i know if i am using those artificial Pandan Extract/Essence (instead of 6 pandan leaves add with 130 ml water per your recipe), how much should i use in teaspoon measurement ? Any need to make adjustment to the recipe if using artificial Pandan Extract/Essence ? Your muffins looked delish and i die-die must try ... Thanks! Anna
