Butter-Pandan Marbled Cake


250g butter, softened
180g caster sugar
4 eggs (60g each), room temperature
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
190g plain flour
60g cornflour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
60g coconut milk

  • Preheat oven to 170 deg C.  Grease and line an 8 inch round cake pan.
  • Sift plain flour, cornflour, baking powder and salt together.  Set aside.
  • Beat the butter until soft.  Then add in sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in eggs, one at a time and beating well after each addition.  Add vanilla extract and beat until combined.
  • With the mixer on slow speed, alternately add in the flour mixture and coconut milk, in three additions, beginning and ending with the flour.
  • Divide batter into two portions.  Add pandan paste into one portion and mix to just combined.
  • Place a spoon of the plain batter onto the middle of the cake pan and top it with a spoonful of the pandan batter. Continue with alternating batters, making sure to keep placing them into the centre with each addition.
  • Bake for about 50 - 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  • Leave the cake in the pan for 10 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool.
