Coconut Pandan Cake

One of my baking kakis from Baking Project, Wiz, recommended this recipe as she mentioned in her blog, a whiz, it was an easy cake to bake.

Taking her words for it, I quickly baked this cake to give to my brother, who's having a "kenduri". It was a hit!

Thanks Wiz for the recipe.
