The latest food craze to hit our shores is the Castella Cake, a popular Japanese sponge cake of Portugal origins, made from a simple selection of ingredients including sugar, flour and eggs.
Derived from the Portuguese name Pão de Castela, meaning "bread from Castile", these cakes are loved for their fluffy and light-as-air texture.

Touted to be Malaysia’s best selling Castella Cakes, Ah Mah Homemade Cake (from $8) is now in Singapore, with two outlets to boot.
Inspired by the popular egg sponge cakes originating from Tamsui (Danshui), Taiwan, Chef Jim of Ah Mah Homemade Cake has adapted the traditional recipe and put a local twist on it.
The cakes are freshly made every day on the spot with each batch baked for 80 minutes, resulting in a light yet soft texture.
Consider their cakes to be a slightly healthier option as they’re made with purely with milk, grade AA eggs and quality flour, with no added preservative.
Opt for the Original if you fancy a lighter flavour or the Cheese if you prefer a gooey texture within.
Outlets including #01-18, Bukit Panjang Plaza, 1 Jelebu Road.
