is a light, fluffy cake of Malay origins (Indonesia, Malaysia, The Philippines) flavored with the juice of Pandanus amaryllifolius
leaves. The cakes are light green in tone due to the chlorophyll
in the leaf juice. It also sometimes contains green food colouring
to further enhance its colour. The cakes are sometimes not made with the leaf juice but instead simply flavoured
with pandanus extract
, in which case, colouring must be added to give the cake a green colour.
It is popular in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, and China. It is also known as pandan chiffon.
