Pandan Ogura cake

Pandan Ogura cake

Pandan Ogura cake

 Yields:  7″ or 8″ cake


Yolk batter:
egg yolk ~ 100g (about 5 eggs)
whole egg  1
salt  ~ 1/4 tsp
corn oil ~ 60g
pandan juice ~ 70g
coconut milk  ~20g
superfine flour  ~ 75g – I used plain flour for this cake, no problem:)

Egg whites:
egg white  ~ 200g (from 5 eggs)
castor sugar ~ 80g
Cream of tartar ~ 1/4 tsp or 1 tsp lemon juice

utensil :
7″square pan or 8″ round pan – use the normal pan and line the bottom. Water bath method so make sure your pans are not leaking!

Pandan Ogura cake2


Yolk batter:
1. Beat the egg yolk, whole egg, salt, corn oil, pandan juice and coconut milk until fluffy.
2. Sift in flour, then mix it until well combined.

Egg whites:
1. Beat egg white + lemon juice (or cream of tartar) + castor sugar until firm peaks form.
2. Mix into egg yolk batter, 1/3 portion of the meringue at a time , first use a hand whisk to mix gently and at the end, switch to spatula to lift batter from bottom to fold up. Keep doing this until a nice smooth batter is obtained.
3. Pour the mixture into prepared pan, shaking gently from side to side to even out the top.
4. Put pan into a larger pan and filled up with hot water (about 1/3 of the batter pan). Bake with preheated oven at 160’C for 30 min then turn down to 150’C for 20 min.  Temperature is indicative only.
5. Once baked, remove from the pan immediately, inverted on a rack and let it cool. If the bottom is still slightly wet, invert the cake on a silpat and bake it at 120C for 10 minutes to dry it out. That means you bake it without the pan, putting the cake top side up directly on the silpat. Once done, transfer to a rack and cool completely before slicing.


Ingredients variation:-

90g Flour instead of 75g

1 tsp of pandan paste

85g of santan (coconut cream)

40g of oil instead of 60g

Smeg oven temperature: 155C for 30 mins; 150C for 50 mins.

Triple-Layer White Cake with Orange Curd Filling

10Triple-Layer White Cake with Orange Curd Filling

Yield:  3 layer (9″)


Orange curd

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 9 large egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons orange zest
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

Cake: Dry ingredients

  • 2 3/4 cups cake flour
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Cake: Wet ingredients

  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 6 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange peel
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Cake: Egg white ingredients

  • 6 large egg whites (start with room temperature egg whites)
  • Pinch salt
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar

Frosting ingredients

  • 10 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 2/3 cups powdered sugar



Orange Curd

1 Put the lemon juice in a small bowl and sprinkle gelatin over it. Let sit for 15 minutes.

2 Whisk together the sugar, orange juice, egg yolks, orange zest and lemon zest in a thick-bottomed saucepan. Add the butter and whisk over medium heat until the mixture thickens and bubbles start to appear at the edge of the pan, about 9 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the gelatin mixture. Whisk the mixture until the gelatin dissolves. Transfer the curd mixture to a bowl, wrap with plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the curd (so that no air touches it) and refrigerate overnight.


1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour three 9-inch-diameter cake pans with 1 1/2-inch-high sides. Sift the flour, 1 1/4 cups sugar, baking powder, and salt into medium bowl.

2 Whisk the oil and egg yolks in large bowl until well blended. Whisk in the sour cream, then the milk, orange peel, and vanilla. Whisk in the dry ingredients in 3 additions.

3 Using electric mixer, beat egg whites with a pinch of salt in another large bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining 2/3 cup sugar, while beating on hight speed until you have stiff peaks.

4 Gently fold the egg whites into the batter in 4 additions. (Do not overmix!)

5 Divide batter among prepared pans. Bake cakes until the center is just golden, a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, and the cake pulls away very slightly from pan, about 20 minutes. Cool cakes in pans 5 minutes. Cut around pan sides. Turn cakes out onto racks and cool completely.

6 Place one cake layer, flat side up, on 8-inch tart pan bottom or platter. Spread 1 cup of the orange curd over the cake. Top with the second cake layer, flat side down. Spread 1 cup of the curd over the layer. Top with the third cake layer, flat side down. Cover and refrigerate the assembled cake.


1 Using electric mixer, beat cream cheese and butter in medium bowl until smooth. Beat in powdered sugar, then 3/4 cup orange curd.

2 Spread frosting over cake. (Can be made a day ahead. Cover with cake dome; refrigerate.)
