Coconut Pandan Muffin

Star Q
ii.  Pindah!!!

It's the weekend and the start of a two-week long school holiday.  I've got a lot of things planned for the next week, especially marking and grading students' mid-year exam answer scripts.  And marking students' scripts, especially unintelligible and illegible scripts, can be demanding, both on the brain and the nerves.  I really cannot control my emotion and I start to turn green like the Hulk when I get too many of these scripts!

And speaking of green, I decided to ease the stress of marking these scripts by, what else, baking.  Well, muffin would be simple enough.  But half way through, I found the process very torturous, because of the very warm weather; and toiling by the oven certainly did not alleviate the situation.  But I pressed on, and, voila, Coconut Pandan Muffin!


  • 100g all purpose flour
  • 1/3 tsp baking powder
  • small pinch salt

  • 2 eggs
  • 95g soft brown caster sugar
  • 85g corn oil
  • 1/2 tbs coconut pandan emulco
  • 25g freshly grated coconut

  • 150g vegetable shortening
  • 90g icing sugar
  • 1/2 tsp coconut pandan emulco
  • 2 drops green coloring

Sift ingredients A into a large bowl.  Add in B and mix until just combined.  The mixture should be a bit lumpy.  Spoon mixture in muffin cups and bake in pre-heated oven at 180 C for about 25 minutes.

For the icing, beat the shortening and sugar until pale and fluffy.  Then, add in the coconut pandan emulco and green coloring.  Decorate at will! Haha!
