Really looks so soft & evenly brown on top too! Is the recipe in your blog some where? If not, can you share the recipe? Would love to try other sponge cake recipe other than Castella. :P

Hi,
Your sponge cake looks really good and soft. I made sponge cakes several times but still never cotton soft. Would you mind sharing your recipe? I want to make sponge cake again for my kid's birthday, which is 3 weeks away. My email is reginachennault@yahoo.com.

Thanks,
Regina

Regina and Ching, the recipe is already in my blog under Cotton Spongecake. Actually this is a recipe from Alex Goh's book but I find his method not what I like so I change the method to what I would like to do. However, if you have his book and you would like to try his original method you can do so too.

I'll ever tried Alex Goh's Japanese Cotton Sponge Cake, not cottony at all, I think he still keeping some & didn't share it out. I think I'll try yours, can I know the size of the baking tray?

Very beautifully baked sponge cake. Looks like really soft and fluffy cake. Can I ask for the recipe please?

Hugbear said...

KC, the recipe is in my blog under Cotton Spongecake.

Hnonymous, I used exactly the same ingreds as state in Alex Goh's book except for the milk. INstead of evaporated milk, I used fresh milk. You can use either a swiss roll pan, like what I did here and cut it into half and spread with some buttercream and stack it up. Or you can use a 8 inch round or square baking tin.

hi Hugbear, i left a comment in the other post earlier. i realise my prob could be due to my shortened baking time. it was also rather wet.

can i check what brand of eggs do u normally buy for baking? are the eggs frm phoonhuat fresh?

Hi HB,

May I know how to make the buttercream?

Hugbear said...

You can get the buttercream recipe from my sugar roll post.

Tracy, I agree that underbaking it will make the cake rather wet. I have had such experience before too. I don't know what brand of eggs I use because I usually buy by the tray from the wholesaler through my aunty. It is usually bigger and cheaper then if I buy from the market or supermarket.
