    Hi, the cake looks so yummy. i want try to make it asap.
    But any substitute for coconut cream powder? i don\’t think i can find it at my places 🙁

    • Victoria Bakes (July 6, 2015)

      Hi Vika, the coconut cream powder helps to enhance the flavour. If you cannot find this, omit totally (this alters the taste and aroma slightly). I may consider adding desiccated coconut, but may alter on the weight since it is a very dry addition. Apologies I cannot comment how much as I haven\’t tried it (need to trial and error) but that\’s a consideration for u. Hope this helps.

    WoW! So many bookmarked recipes from you, Victoria 🙂 My lists are getting longer and longer.

  • JesSaBuff (July 6, 2015)

    Hey Victoria! Where did you get the cake stamp thingy? I\’m really interested to get 1 for myself!

    • Victoria Bakes (July 7, 2015)

      Hiya, as mentioned above, its a gift from a friend, but i believe she got it off taobao

      • JesSaBuff (July 7, 2015)

        Oh I didn\’t see that part. So cool. Thank s !

  • Weny (July 21, 2015)

    Hi Victoria,
    I just tried this cake today, cannot find coconut powder, so I I add some milk powder instead.
    The texture is super soft. Me likes! 🙂
    But the cake fell down when I inverted it. Do you have any advice on how to prevent that?
    And I also wonder if you intentionaly ommit the sugar on the yolk batter? It is not in the recipe, and the cake taste less sweet .

    • Victoria Bakes (July 21, 2015)

      Hello Weny, there isn\’t any sugar in yolk batter for this recipe. If u prefer a sweeter cake, feel free to add on. If u notice, I like using all the sugar in egg whites as I learnt from jap chef that by doing so, it yields a softer cake.

      With re dropping cake, u may like to try pre heating cake pan in the oven before pouring in batter. I just made an orange flavoured one recently, and learnt from someone that actually, this cake does not require inverting to cool just leave in the oven for five mins (after turning off heat) and then remove. Place cake directly on rack to cool. A successful cottony cake is supposed to have shrunk a little and slides out of pan easily. And guess what, it sounds like what u he achieved… Oh well, I guess different people have different ways of making this 🙂

      Hope this helps

  • Weny (July 22, 2015)

    Thanks! I will try that next time. Which probably soon :p
    After a few slices, it did not taste less sweet anymore, just need a little used to the taste.
    Less sugar is healthier anyway 🙂

    Hi, Victoria, re: pandan cotton cake, is melted coconut oil available in bakery shops? Is boiling coconut oil a must? Thsnk you.

  • Victoria Bakes (September 4, 2015)

    Hi Jen, coconut oil is easily available. The reason i said melted is because over time, there had been many readers asking me if coconut oil should be melted when using. Depending on what climate u r in, it may already be in liquid form. But when weather turns slightly colder, it hardens. So, just use coconut oil. And yes, boiling method is a must here. Its also known as cooked dough method.

    Hope this helps.

    • Jen Tan (September 4, 2015)

      Thank you so much for your prompt reply.

  • LN Ng (January 18, 2016)

    Hi, Can i use pandan juice instead of pandan paste? If I can, do I need to increase the amount use to get the same flavour? Thanks in advance.

    • Victoria Bakes (January 18, 2016)

      Hi, in this situation, i will say no substitution. the paste and juice have different density, and you may end up having to using more juice just to get a nice colour but your batter will be too wet. you will then have to adjust the amount of flour and coconut milk used.

      if you are using self made pandan juice, consider leaving it in the fridge for 4 days (people start using by day 2 though, but based on my experience, day 4 homemade pandan paste is better). you will see that the green residue starts to sit to the bottom of the bottle and it just gets thicker by the day. just dump the diluted water that\’s collected by day 4, and use the concentrated bottom ones. that is homemade pandan paste

      hope this helps

  • Jen Tan (April 9, 2016)

    Hi, Victoria, do I blend in coconut milk & pandan in Step 2 immediately or wait till is cool off. Juz baked it sink in centre. Tks.

    • Victoria Bakes (April 10, 2016)

      Hi Jen, you do not need to wait for things to cool off. Just blend it in. With re sunk centre, do rem to send cake to bake once batter is prepared and do not open the oven door till it\’s cooked. I do hope you can succeed soon Jen. It\’s a very nice cake 🙂 gambate!

      • Jen Tan (April 10, 2016)

        Tks for prompt reply. Will try again.

      • Jen Tan (April 10, 2016)

        Victoria, tks. Will try again

      • Jen Tan (April 10, 2016)

        I baked again, its soft & light, but a slight thick layer formed at the bottom. Why? Will try again. Tks for recipe.

        • Victoria Bakes (April 10, 2016)

          Hi Jen, it sounds like the ingredients weren\’t well incorporated. It\’s really a thin line between folding just enough and not over mixing. I\’m sure you will get it right again very soon 🙂

  • Pooi Leng (June 17, 2016)

    Nice cake. I only have 8 inch pan. Should I double the recipe? Thanks. PL
