“This is the easiest pandan cake I've ever made, and best tasting too! I made my husband rank his favourite cakes that I've ever made and I've never been able to outdo the Choco Banana cake until this one!.We're both watching our weight, so I've reduced alot of sugar in the recipe, so it's not too sweet at all. Enjoy!”
