Pandan Donut Recipe | Resepi Donat Pandan

Donut, I bet most of people on earth have tried them but have you tried PANDAN DONUT! Haha. As an Asian I appreciate the use of Pandan leaf in many asian cuisines. Its versatile, use for dessert and also savory. I must say donut is like vanilla in Europe. It has it own taste, sweet aromatic smell. If you never tried pandan before you missed most precious natural food flavouring.


  1. Use rub in method to combined butter and flour, this helps in donut’s texture
  2. Use pandan emulco instead pandan flavouring. Pandan emulco is much thicker consistency and taste.
  3. Use colouring if needed.
  4. Elastic dough help it to stay fluffy and soft longer.
  5. You may use wheat or bread flour. Bread flour has more gluten, hence make it more fluffier and less time to knead especially if you knead it by hand.
  6. Use low heat while frying but make sure the oil hot before frying.
  7. To test either the oil ready by putting a chopstick or a little bit of dough, if it bubble and float means it ready.
  8. Dont coat the donut with sugar while it still hot.

    Sounds interesting will love to give it a try! But can i know how long does it take for the dough to double in size and do we leave the dough out in the kitchen to rise?

      Thank you. well it depend on the weather. If you stay in a cold weather place it might take longer.If your place is warmer, I think 30 minutes to 1 hour is enough. To be safe you will need to check on your dough size. not depending on the time, it vary depend on the surrounding temperature. the warmer the place the lesser time it take to double in size.

    Can you use pandan extract? I also have the pandan leaves in my freezer, can I make the pandan emulco from that? If so how? And do you have the nutritional values for this donut, ie calories?
