Pandan Huat Kuih

Pandan Huat Kuih

250 g AP flour
150 g castor sugar
1 tsp of double acting baking powder
1 tsp baking powder – if you are using self raising flour, please omit this
1 egg, lightly beaten
200 g pandan juice – blend 7-8 pandan leaves with 200g of water and squeeze out the juice then measure out 200g
50 g melted butter
1/2 tsp salt


1. Melt the butter and allow to cool before mixing in the egg. Add sugar into the pandan juice and heat up to dilute the sugar (or you can just keep stirring without heating up which will take longer). If you are heating the juice, allow it to cool first.
2. Place sifted flour, baking powder and double acting baking powder into a large mixing bowl. Add 1/2 tsp salt and give it a few whisk to mix.
3. Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and slowly add the pandan juice. Mix with a hand whisk until lump free.
4. Add the butter/eggs mixture and mix until batter is smooth.
5. Divide into 6 cups and steam on high heat for 20 minutes.

Notes: make sure the cover of the steamer is wiped dry before steaming the cakes.
Do not open the steamer until the time is up.

    Hi Jeannie. Your pandan kuih looks so good .all nicely opened. Can I use all double acting powder instead. Do I reduce the amount? Thanks. Chloe.

      You can use 1.5 tsp and steam your kuih immediately, do not allow to sit around for too long. Alternatively you can use self raising flour and omit the 1 tsp of baking powder.

    Hi Jeannie
    Thank you for sharing. Love the way your kuih open up. Can you pls tell me what size mould you use.
    Thank you.

      I didn’t measure the mould. Just pour in up to 90% full; using any size is the same.
