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.

When Le Castella opened its first outlet in Singapore this May, it made waves for its popular cakes (from $9.90).

Drawing four-hour long queues, the Taiwanese brand’s cakes are famously jiggly, thick and fluffy — each measuring 23 cm x 13 cm exactly.

As of now, only two flavours, Original and Cheese, are available.

Word has it that new flavours are in the pipeline, including Chocolate and a locally-inspired flavour in time for National Day.
