  • Preheat oven to 325F/160C.
  • Grease a 8" x 8" square cake pan.
  • In a blender, add chopped pandan leaves and ¼ cup water. Blend on high. Run the pandan liquid through a sieve to remove the pulp to discard. Reserve the liquid for later.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add egg yolks and sugar to a bowl and beat until it turns pale yellow.
  • Then add the melted butter and beat until well combined.
  • Next add flour and only beat until just combined.
  • Whisk together your milk and pandan liquid. Microwave for 60 seconds until lukewarm.
  • Gradually add pandan milk to your egg mixture (about ¼ cup at a time). Beat until well combined.
  • Now beat egg whites until you reach stiff peaks.
  • With a spatula, fold ⅓ of the egg whites into the batter at a time until incorporated. The batter will be very runny and there will be lumps, which is fine.
  • Pour the batter into you square cake pan.
  • Bake for 60-65 minutes. At the 30 minute mark, cover loosely with aluminum foil. To check if it is cooked, insert a toothpick to check if it comes out clean. If its clean, then remove it from the oven. If not, leave it in the oven covered for another 10 minutes.
  • Allow to cool in the cake pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
  • To serve, sprinkle icing sugar over top, slice and enjoy!
