Asia has one of the most inspiring and incredible recipes and this pandan cake is one of them, this cake is light, airy, and has a gorgeous green color. To make it get a large clean bowl to make meringue by whisk the egg whites and cream of tartar into stiff peak. In another bowl whisk the egg yolk and sugar until fluffy.

Using an electric hand mixer, continue to beat until it looks slightly opaque, then add the 100g sugar in a steady flow. Continue to beat until the meringue reaches stiff peaks and set to one side. In a separate bowl, using the same electric beaters (no need to wash) beat the egg yolks and the remaining 75g sugar and whisk until they are really fluffy.

Add some oil, coconut milk, vanilla extract, and pandan extract to get a lovely fragrant color. Whisk until well combined. Sift the flour into the egg yolk mixture and whisk well again. Using a spatula fold in a spoon of the meringue into the egg yolk mixture and mix in well. Then gently fold the remaining meringue into the egg yolk mixture.

Roughly stir it through and do the same to the remaining meringue. Lightly spray a bunt tin with cake spray, pour the mixture into the tin, and put into the pre-heated oven of 175degrees C for 35 minutes. Into a bowl, mix tangy mix of icing sugar, lime juice, and a little water. Once the cake is cooked remove it from the oven and leave to cool.

Once the cake is cooled pour the icing over just until it drizzles down the sides. Lastly, sprinkle some lime zest on over the top just to finish it.
