Moist Pandan Sponge Cake aka Ogura Cake ????????

This cake is commonly known as Ogura cake. It's actually similar to sponge cake and chiffon cake but the texture is more moist due to water bath method used in this recipe.    

There are 3 flavours of Ogura cake that I used to bake for my family, that I started about 2 years back ~ Coffee Ogura, Bandung Ogura .....

Bandung Ogura that I baked back in July 2015.

Bandung Ogura Cake made into a Candy Crush themed birthday cake for my son's 6yo birthday.

.......and Pandan Ogura. I have tried both steam bake and water bath method for this cake. The one that I preferred, it's water bath method because the cake is more moist and it's especially tasty while it is chilled. Whereas steam bake method yield the similar texture like chiffon cake. Yes, my pandan chiffon cake  is moist and soft too ;)

1. Blend pandan leaves and coconut milk, extract the liquid, this should yield about 90g of green pandan milk. Set aside.

2. Use a hand whisk, whisk egg yolk and whole egg until frothy (until small bubbles appeared), whisk in salt, oil and green pandan milk until well combined. Gradually sieve in flour, gently whisk until no more lumps. Do not over mix the batter.

3. In a stand mixer, beat egg white and lemon juice until frothy, gradually beat in sugar. Continue to beat until the meringue is stiff but not dry. 

4. Fold egg white into yolk batter in 3 batches. 

5. Pour the batter into a lined baking tin (7" square baking tin). Gentle tap the baking tin on the worktop to release trapped air. 

6. Bake in a preheated oven (water bath method) 160'C for 30 minutes (lowest rack). Reset temperature to 140'C, bake for 30 minutes (lowest rack). Move the baking tin to middle rack, continue to bake for 20 minutes until the top is nicely brown. 

Do adjust the temperature and baking time according to your oven setting.

7. When it is done, remove the baking tin from oven. Invert the cake and peel off the baking sheet. Let it cool completely on the rack. 

8. When it's completely cooled, transfer the cake into an airtight container, store in the refrigerator. Best served chilled.
