Pandan Butter Cake (班兰牛油蛋糕)

After seeing this pandan butter cake recipe from a chinese blogger, it reminds me that I should bake one for my hubby (usually I try to avoid making any buttery cake >.<)
Butter cake is his favorite cake and he was very happy to have it yesterday ^-^
Even though pandan butter cake is a simple traditional cake but you are advised to use homemade pandan paste and good quality butter for better taste, moist and fragrant aroma.
Come On!!! Let the amazing aroma fill up your kitchen and bring you an unforgettable taste!
