Pandan Chiffon Cupcakes

Been wanting to bake cupcakes for the kids' lunchboxes so has been trying and bookmarking a few recipes. Another few on the 'to-do-list' are those quiches/egg-like cuppies for breakfast. Those need coaching to my helper on how to bake them and I need a trial run on how well they keep as well. So let's see how it goes next week or later this week during the school holiday!

Today I did this Pandan Chiffon Cupcakes. Viola~ I love it, as well as my 15month old. Couldnt stop eating and got angry when I walked away with it. And I also went to get the Honey Cheesecake from Swee Heng after seeing the intro video. 

Tastewise, better than Breadtalk's Honey something cake. And its worth the $3.80 in my view. I can cut into 8 small slices which is just nice for a small bite after a meal. Do go ahead and try. And this cake inspire me on some more other cheese sponge too...

Back to my chiffon, its light and i think sweetness can reduce slightly. I used pandan paste, fresh milk to replace. Lovely chiffon cupcakes as I think it didnt really collaspe much and no cracks even tho I forgot to add the baking powder. 
Really soft and spongy!

I fill then up to this height! When cooled, it collaspe slightly below the cupcake case rim.
