Castella Cake 原味鸡蛋糕


I really enjoy castella cake.  It is very popular in Singapore now.  There is usually a queue at any bakeries selling it.  I like this cake because there is no cream of tartar or baking powder added to it and the texture is also moist and fluffy.

1.  6 egg yolks
2.  75 g oil
3.  60 g milk
4.  90 g cake flour

3.  Pour batter into baking pan (8 inch square pan)
4.  Preheat oven 150 degree Celsius.  Bake for on the lowest shelf using waterbath method for 60 mins or when a toothpick is insert into the center of the cake and it comes out clean with nothing sticking, the cake is done.   (my oven seems to be very hot, so I turn my temp down to 130 degree Celsius)
If the top of the cake is slightly brown, cover it with a piece of baking paper to prevent it from getting burnt.


Add cheddar cheese for extra flavor
