There are numerous recipes from the Cookbook 'In Love With Pandan' which I love to try.  Anyway, I have to cos' I bought a bottle of Pandan Paste recently.  Must make use of it soon to replace home-made paste.

These muffins are easy to make. They are soft, moist but dense. The texture is quite close to steamed cakes but slightly more fragrant from the baking. The pandan flavour is not that intense and no oil is used in this recipe. Why?  Perhaps, this is why the muffins turned out chewy.  Is there a typo error?  If you are brave enough, do try this recipe otherwise forget it cos' I'm not too happy with the outcome.

Recipe adapted from my selected Cookbook for Cookbook Countdown Event#4 - Ricky Ng's book 'In Love with Pandan [modified]
[makes 5-6 large muffins]
200 gm superfine flour - sifted
2 tsp baking powder
70 gm caster sugar [I used 50 gm]
1/2 tsp salt
60 gm raisins - rinsed, drained and chopped
235 ml milk
1 egg
1/4 tsp pandan paste [I used 1/2 tsp]
  1. In a mixing bowl, sieve flour and baking powder, stir in the sugar, salt and raisins.  Mix well.
  2. In another bowl, pour in milk and add in the egg and pandan paste.  Stir well.
  3. Pour liquid mixture into flour ingredients.  Mix well and set aside for 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, lightly grease a muffin tray and preheat oven at 190 degrees C.
  5. Fill muffin moulds with batter until 80% full.  Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes.
  6. Remove and allow to cool slightly before serving.

Sorry to hear about the kueh-like muffins! Hope there are other better pandan recipes, can't wait to see them as I have a bottle of pandan paste to use up too!

Hi Fiona, I followed the recipe to the T. Perhaps, I have over mix the batter. Would appreciate if you try making this and let me know if it turn out good.

Hi Jasline, I have bookmarked several to try and really hope that they turned out well so that I can share the recipes with all.

Hi Kimmy,
Strange that there's no oil, that could be the cause of the dense texture. Maybe by reducing some of the milk and replace with oil or melted butter?

Kimmy said...

Hi Joyce, good suggestion. I'll take note of it and try again.

Kimmy, these muffins should be good. I love any kind of baked items with pandan.

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, it is fragrant but I think it is chewy and compact when cooled.

No oil? But I love the little tower on top!
