This cake is soft and moist and to achieve the same texture make sure not to over-steam or it becomes dry. The salted egg is perfect for this cake so do not omit. If you happen not to find salted egg in your area, you can make your own but you can also top it with cream cheese and omit the cheese required in this recipe. For the cheese, I used Eden brand. You can also use Queso or Magnolia brands. 8-inch square or round pan is perfect for this recipe. Just make sure to line with ungreased parchment paper so you can easily pull it from the pan and you'll achieve smooth sides if the sides are lined too.
After steaming, let cool for few minutes, remove from pan, peel off the parchment paper and transfer to a wire rack. If you leave it in the pan, the bottom will be soaking wet and you do not want that. The heat needs to be released so transferring to a cooling rack is highly recommended. More recipe notes below, so make sure to read them.

SPECIAL PUTO PANDAN CAKE RECIPE
Cake Flour Substitute:
- As mentioned above, you can use plain water or make your own pandan water. Just adjust the pandan flavor if you are not using pandan leaf.
- I used Eden brand for the grated cheese.
- Make sure not to overmix the cake and follow the folding technique. ("Folding" is a more gentle mixing technique than "stirring" and "mixing". Carefully cut through the mixture with the edge of a rubber spatula, working in a gentle figure of eight.). Overmixing will cause the cake to deflate or your cake will be too heavy or compact.
- After steaming, let cool for few minutes, remove from pan, peel off the parchment paper and transfer to a wire rack. If you leave it in the pan, the bottom will be soaking wet and you do not want that.
