Delicious and Super Easy To Make Too

Unlike most other cake recipes, this traditional sponge cake does not have any leavening such as baking powder. Hence it is suited for those who do not like leavening agent in their baking. Just make sure the eggs are well beaten and they will act as leavening for the cake batter to rise when baked in the oven. Also be sure not to mix too much when folding the whipped egg whites into the egg batter, as this will deflate bubbles from the eggs.

Gently transfer the cake batter into paper-lined muffin cups, fill till almost full and bake till the top turns golden brown. You will surely be pleasantly surprised when these cute cup-shaped soft and fluffy cakes are removed from the oven. Looking at these super soft and moist paper-wrapped chinese sponge cakes certainly brings back a lot of old taste and childhood memories.

As always, Enjoy!
