Coconut Pandan Pound Cake

Coconut Pandan Pound Cake

Preheat oven to 325
Grease and line a loaf pan with parchment paper

Sift dry ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

In a measuring cup, mix together:
1/2 tsp Pandan extract/paste
3/4 cup coconut milk

Remaining Ingredients
1 stick softened butter (1/2 cup)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a stand mixer or large bowl with an electric hand mixer, cream together 1 stick of softened butter with 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Start slow and gradually use medium speed. Make sure to scrape the bowl down occasionally to evenly combine.

Beat in 2 eggs, one at a time along with the vanilla extract until combined.

Slowly add in the sifted flour mixture. Mix on medium speed for a few minutes until combined and batter is light and fluffy. Make sure to scrape down sides. Stream in the coconut milk/pandan mixture until well combined with the batter. Mix on medium speed for another minute. Avoid overmixing.

Pour into loaf pan (batter should be light and airy) and bake at 325 for 1 hour. Test for doneness with a toothpick and cool completely before slicing.

The texture is super light and fluffy. The taste is buttery and coconuty, with a hint of pandan.

Hi everyone,

Just want to share with you my recent projects.  I've started doing giant paper flowers and I have to say I'm obsessed. Here are some of the ones I've done. I'm also selling these so if you're interested please let me know.

I also did a quick onsies set for a good friend of mine. Those things are addicting to make too. :)

Thanks for stopping by.

Handmade flowers from 100% Recycled paper

Hi everyone,

I am excited to share with you some flowers I made with 100% Recycled paper. As you can see I made the papers myself and I couldn't believe how easy it is to recycle. I love the texture it gives to my flowers and how thick the paper turns out. Hope you like them as well.

Art dress and dress forms

Hello everyone. 

I finally got my new craftroom together after we had our place flooded due to pipe broken. I also have had some time to craft again, it was way too long. The things that got me started again was dress forms. I've always been obsessed with dress forms of any kind but mostly shabby chic ones. Below are some that I came up with, I hope you like them. The hot pink one is a pin cushion which I love using. You can view a video of them here as well.

Peonies and a card share

Hi everyone,

I hope you're having a good Fall season. I have been super busy so I haven't crafted in a while. But I'm always itching with ideas. I made these peonies recently and I'm addicted to them. 

I also made a card for a customer of mine, Marcey. I have met up with her and so I wanted to make her a card for being a return customer. I used a file from BirdsCards and cut it out with my cameo. Love her designs you should check her out. Anyhow hope you like the card.
