• You will squeeze out the same amount of the juice. (8 tbsp) so you can make them in two batches of swiss roll. Leftover juice can store in the fridge for not more than 3 days to experience it at its top quality.
1) Clean the pandan leaves under running water to remove dirt. Cut the leaves into small pieces with scissors. Add the leaves at a time, and pulse the blender several times to mince them. Once the leaves are minced, add coconut milk to strain the juice through a fine mesh strainer to remove any solids.
2) In a bowl, mix (A) egg yolks, sugar, corn oil and pandan juice. Sift in the cake flour and whisk until smooth.
3) In a separate bowl, whisk (B) egg whites until foamy then add cream of tartar and sugar a little bit at a time until to a thick and stiff peak stage, about 3 minutes.

1) It's fine to use cold eggs for baking, or you still can use room temperature eggs. The temperature of eggs will affects the baking time, and cold eggs will take longer to bake.
2) Chill the bowl and whisk in the freezer before whisk the egg whites and making whipped cream.

4) Whipping cream doesn’t whip up as thickly as double cream.
5) Cutting off the crusty edge from the two long sides.

7) Fold the batter into a egg whites. Cut the egg whites into the mixture. Don't stir and never use an electric mixer for this.
8) Beating egg whites is a very important process, It will help your cakes rise with perfectly.
