Pandan Blueberry Cake recipe

I like the Pandan blueberry cake served at Cedele. This is my attempt at re-creating the flavours using a strawberry shortcake recipe as base. It also happens K was nursing a cold yet it’s his birthday so I thought some antioxidants will be good for him. 🙂 The funny thing is, I scoured the internet… Continue reading Pandan Blueberry Cake recipe
