Made a stop at this old-school bakery at Alexandra on Friday and was so, so elated to see two blocks of my favourite pandan cake still up for grabs. It sells out terribly quickly, so I lost no time in claiming them mine.

It's been ages since I last had this, but it is exactly how I remember it to be: immensely fragrant yet subtle and not overpowering on the palate; the crumb light, moist and cottony soft – I suspect far more so than any other pandan chiffon cake that ever existed or will exist – nearly dissolving involuntarily in the mouth as I chew.

And of course, while making my purchase at the confectionary, I had the thought in my head to photograph the cake on the Jamie Oliver board that @missmandyy just gifted me earlier in the week. 😊
