About my Pandan French Toast
For my recipe, I’m using two slices of bread, a free-range egg, pandan leaf extract or essence and oat milk. Be sure to use free-range eggs are they are produced by happier healthier hens who have the ability to roam and walk as animals should. They also receive more sunlight which is a natural antibiotic.
When I first met my husband’s family who originates from Malaysia, I got to try these delicious Pandan Crepes! I will never forget the first time I tried them because they were soft, chewy and had that gorgeous pandan aroma. From that moment I was hooked and I had to make everything Pandan flavoured! So look out, I’ll be producing more recipes with this wonderful flavour!
What is Pandan?
Pandan is a herbaceous tropical plant that grows in Southeast Asia. It’s a very fragrant plant thanks to it’s vanilla and floral grass scent. The plant looks similar to a palm with vibrant green leaves that are long and pointy. The leaves are utilized for their delicious taste in many Thai and Southeast Asian Dishes. Pandan is usually sold as an extract, paste or powder to flavour treats.
How is Pandan used?
It’s commonly used to flavour many Thai or Southeast Asian desserts, such as cakes, jellies and more. Sometimes the leaves are used to wrap sticky with as the flavour seeps into the sticky rice making it taste wonderful!
Where can I buy Pandan Essence?
You can usually buy it from most asian grocers on online. Just search online for “Pandan Leaf Essence” or Extract. I would not recommend using the powders unless you’re familiar with using them.
