stack of Pandan Pancakes with Coconut CustardMy best friend and I frequent an Asian tea house that serves excellent pandan waffles. We really like how soft the middles are, so we decided to try making our own pandan pancakes. Pandan sweets always pair nicely with coconut, so we made a coconut custard to go along with the cakes. When the layered stack is placed in the fridge for an hour, the breakfast treat turns into a dense cake, which is also a nice way to enjoy this!


Pandan is short for "pandanus amaryllifolius," a tropical Asian plant that's well known for its distinct aroma. Pandan extracts are usually infused with suji leaves to get their super bright green pigments.
