The spongecake is my mom’s specialty (and the only thing she likes to bake, really). After all the pictures of food experiments from this year, I have finally earned the right to cook in the non-jank kitchen at home! So just last month, I baked with my mom for the first time. In my life. No, I didn’t have those childhood memories of baking with my mother. She’ll have none of that mess, haha.
This recipe tastes similar to the cakes you’ll find in typical Asian bakeries. It’s a very light, fluffy texture, and is not too sweet. This batch makes about 6 cupcakes or a small 8″ circle cake.
