班兰相思蛋糕 Pandan Ogura Cake

A popular cake among the Malaysian Chinese bloggers, and being a follower of some of these bloggers I simply cannot resist jumping on the Ogura bandwagon even though I do not know what does the original 相思蛋糕 (ogura cake) taste like.   The original version comes with cream sandwiched in between two slices of cake,  but I chose to have it plain because my cake was too soft and I don’t think I will get a nice cut.  The taste of 相思蛋糕 (ogura cake) is quite close to chiffon except that it is dense, soft and cottony.
