How to Make Pandan Cupcakes

Have you ever had pandan flavored desserts before? Pandan has a fragrant scent, which makes the dessert taste interesting. I’m not sure if there is something else I can relate it to because it is so unique. If you haven’t tried desserts infused with pandan flavor before, give it a try and let me know what you think about it.
