Pandan Cocoa Cupcake 香兰可可小蛋糕

Soft and light cupcakes with interlocking colours and flavours coming from coconut oil, pandan and cocoa powder 😍 Pandan powder can also be replaced by easier available matcha powder 😉 The cake tasted equally nice even in original flavour 😋

6. Take about 1/3 of the original batter, and divide among the cocoa and pandan paste. Mix in separate bowls into cocoa and pandan batters.

7. Pour the original, cocoa and pandan batters, in alternating sequence, into the 6 paper cupcake moulds.

Tap to level the batter in the moulds.

Optional, you can create some marble patterns on the surface of the batter, too.

Place on a baking tray

and bake in a preheated oven at 140℃ for about 20 minutes, at the lower rack of an oven.

Increase the temperature to 170℃ for another 10 to 12 minutes, to brown the surface.

8. Transfer the cupcakes to a cooling rack.

Optional, for a nicer buttery crust, add a small chunk of cold butter to the crust of the hot cupcakes.

When the butter begins to melt, spread it out with a brush.

9. Enjoy it warm 😋
