Egg White Pandan Cupcakes

these little egg white pandan cuppies were made in an attempt to use up the remaining egg whites i had in the freezer! i adapted the recipe from aunty yochana's egg white cheese cupcakes. replaced the 100 mL of fresh milk with 25 mL of pandan juice and 75 mL of coconut milk and added 1/2 tsp of pandan paste.

but mine sank a little after i took them out of the oven.


it tasted very light and soft, and i loved the pandan fragrance. you could make them in a larger size. i think these are a little too mini. haha.


the recipe uses a little amount of butter and no yolks. so i guess it's a rather healthy one :) do try it!

the exams are drawing near. so i won't be blogging for sometime. will be back after my papers end. yay i can't wait man :)

till then, take care :)

i'll be leaving for wyoming, yellowstone during the 3 months break this coming may for a work and travel program! really excited and looking forward to it. basically i'll be working in yellowstone for 2 months at xanterra national park and resort, then we'll be travelling for the remaining one month :) heh. any must go places anyone? please let me know okay :)

hi,i was wondering what it means to beat the egg whites till fluffy? like till it forms stiff peaks? or soft peaks? and is it possible to replace the pandan paste with pandan flavour? will that work? Thanks!

Hi Anonymous,

It means beating till soft peaks which are "stiff", meaning the peaks in the batter do not fall at all.

You could try with Pandan flavour. I think it wouldn't be a problem :)
