How Is The Texture of These Pandan Kaya Muffins Like?
If you like soft and light muffins with some bite to it, you would probably like these muffins!
This pandan kaya muffin recipe uses a little more eggs than usual. The baking powder gives the muffins quite a bit of lift there for a fluffy texture. As this recipe uses slightly more baking powder, you can use aluminum-free baking powder so there’s no weird aftertaste, and is probably “healthier” too.

What Ingredients Do I Need?
- Eggs – Use medium or large sized eggs, about 55g – 60g each at room temperature.
- Milk – I am using pandan powder for the pandan milk (I previously bought from Redmart but it’s now out of stock). You can also blend pandan leaves together with milk and strain it to get pandan milk. If you cannot find both of these, you can also use whole milk for vanilla flavored muffins.
- Oil – I am using rice bran oil. You can use any neutral tasting oil, or coconut oil for a fuller coconut aroma.
- Baking Powder – Baking powder is important to give these muffins a fluffy texture. Do not skip the baking powder.
- Top Flour – You can use either top flour or cake flour for this recipe.
- Kaya – I topped the muffins with our favourite local custard jam – KAYA! It gives the muffins some texture and richness. Don’t skip this if you’re a kaya lover! Both Hainanese or pandan kaya would work. If you’re living overseas, check if your nearest Asian grocery store carries it 🙂
Are These Pandan Kaya Muffins Easy To Make?
Yes! This recipe uses a very simple mixing method: you just need to mix the wet ingredients in one bowl, sift in the dry ingredients into another. Then combine the wet ingredients to the dry – VOILA – the batter is done.
Do note that this batter is fairly liquid and thin, so be sure to mix till it is as smooth as possible, without too much lumps.
