Today is World Baking day so we are bringing to you Japanese Castella cake that is usually served with tea or Coffee. It is also shown regularly in anime! So, let's get started.
Sugar: Kurozato (Japanese black sugar), which has a deep flavor, is recommended.
Preheat oven at 180C/356F. Place parchment paper on a cake pan.
Put eggs and sugar in a large bowl, place it over a tray with hot water (or a double boiler), and beat using an electric mixer on high speed for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the egg mixture is thick.
Add honey and water and beat on low speed until combined.
Add flour and stir with a spatula until combined.
Pour the batter into the cake pan, tap the pan a few times to break the air bubbles, and bake for 15 minutes at 180C/356F.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 25 minutes at 160C/320F.
Wrap the cake with plastic wrap and leave for half a day (It will be more moist and tasty)
After it serve it with Coffee or Tea! Do let us know if you try making it. We would love to know about it.
