Pandan Madeleine (班兰玛德琳)

I just learned how to make concentrated pandan paste from Sonia blog. Great to have this type of natural and fragrant homemade pandan paste.  I using this first homemade pandan paste for my madeleine instead of chiffon cake (just baked chiffon recently).

I saw many bloggers used green tea or matcha powder to bake their green colour madeleine but in Malaysia we are blessed with lot of pandan leaves. So why don't we use them wisely in our baking or cooking?

This is how my pandan paste look likes (after 3 days in fridge and discarded the upper layer)

 This madeleine mould is good for beginner like me only cost RM5 at Daiso.
