Pandan Cotton Cake 香兰棉花蛋糕

唉~ 想烤一个没有“爆脸“的棉花蛋糕,还真不容易呀!佩服那些已经成功了的朋友。
This was my third attempt to cotton cake but I still failed to bake a perfect one without crack on top. I feel frustrated but baker won't easily discourage, am I right? There's more to come
However this cotton cake texture is super light, moist and fluffy. Once you try it, you will love it.
I tried to cover the crack but it's too big to cover :(
