I have been dying to try this recipe but was held back due to the increasing load in study time and the approaching deadline limit of research proposal. Anyhow, one day I got an excuse to try this recipe. I wanted to bring something to “pengajian”. Besides, I need to try my spankin’ new angel food cake pan ;) .

Ingredients:
A:
200 gr flour
150 sugar
100 ml oil
125 water
5 egg yolks
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
5 drops of pandan paste

B:
7 egg whites
1/2 tsp cream of tartar (substitute: salt)
100 gr sugar

Directions:
-Preheat the oven at 160 degrees
-Beat A with an electric mixer until it is well combined.
-Add in half of the sugar, resume beating for five minutes.
-Add in the rest of the sugar, beat the batter until it becomes stiff
-Beat B until it reaches hard peak.
-Fold the beaten egg whites into the flour/egg yolk mixture in three to four batches. Mix well.
-Pour into *ungreased* angel food cake pan (diameter: 24 cm).
-Let it bake for about 50 minutes at 160 degrees and continue to bake it for about 15-20 minutes at 180 degrees.
-Take out the pan from the oven. Let it cool while it is inverted.
