Pandan Chiffon Cake

I do believe in love at first sight... and first bite :) When me and J had our first bite, we knew that we wanted another one (and another one and another one). The cake is so light, spongy, moist, soft and rich in pandan flavour. Serve warm with a cup of tea and life can't get any better than this :D

I baked the cake in both chiffon and muffin pans. I just bought a new set of paper liners and I wanted to use it so badly. Hence, I forced the chiffon cake to transform into chiffon cupcake :D
