Ube Coco Pandan Waffles

I love the pandan waffles or green waffles usually sold at Vietnamese sandwich stores.   Pandan is a plant mainly found in Asia and being used for green color and for its fragrant smell.  It is usually best paired with anything with coconut or basmati rice.

Since I have been craving for these waffles, I decided to make some and added ube (purple yam) extract for extra flavor.


  • 2 cups unbleached flour
  • 3/4 cup (OR 14 Tbsp) sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter, melted & cooled
  • 4 Tbsp shredded coconut
  • 2 eggs, separate yokes & white
  • 1 can of coconut milk (13.5 oz Or 400 ml)
  • 2 Tbsp coco (buko) pandan extract
  • 2 Tbsp ube (purple yam) extract
  • coconut oil spray


  1. Sift flour & baking powder together in a bowl, stir in sugar then set aside
  2. Pre-heat the waffle maker
  3. Mix egg yokes, coconut milk, butter, shredded coconut & extracts together
  4. Add in the flour mixture then blend it all together until thick
  5. Beat the egg whites to soft peaks
  6. Fold in the egg whites to the thick batter
  7. Spray coconut oil on the waffle maker, pour about half a cup of batter then cook
  8. Eat is as plain or with ice cream
  9. Enjoy



  •  Buko pandan & ube extracts can be bought in any oriental stores
