  1. Hi, If I were to bake a 7 inches round cake do I double or triple the recipe?

  4. Ok. Thank you for your reply. I shall try it this weekend :)

  5. Sorry just to double check the butter used is salted or unsalted butter? Thanks.

  6. I can't find a 7*11 inch tray in boon huat so I bought and used a 10*10 inch tray and it turned out real flat and dry. Is the recipe writes correctly? Is it a 7*11cm tray or really 7*11 inch tray??

  7. Hi Lucinda,

    Can I use cake flour instead of self raising flour? Same quantity?


  8. Hi Glenda. Using cake flour will yield a different texture for the cake. The sr flour will give you a melt in the mouth texture cake.

  9. How do I get the pandan juice?
