When I saw this cake in this blog, I fell in love with the color and the mould it was baked in. Of course I quickly pinned it for baking during the long weekend. The cake was quite moist and fine crumbed which I love in buttercakes. Then pandan flavor was very prominent and the poppy seeds lent a nice crunch to the cake...lovely!
