Kaya Pandan Cake

I have made this cake numerous times. Sometime requested by others and some times just for the family. This recipe is always a keeper. We just love the kaya and the coconut with the cruncy taste. The good thing about this cake is it used only few eggs and no butter which is non fatening.
This time I used only 1/2 of the orginal recipe which required only 2 eggs and instead of optima flour I used self raising flour and sugar. I always prefer self raising flour to ready cake mix because self raising flour the texture is always firmer. This time I also used a new brand of agar agar powder as below which was made in Thailand.


125 gm. self raising flour
80gm sugar
2 eggs
1 Tbsp. Pandan juice (optinal)
a little green pandan paste or green colouring
1 1/2 Tbsp. Thick coconut milk
3/4 Tbsp. cooking oil

400 ml. thick coconut milk cream
5 Tbsp. Hoen kwee flour / green pea flour
