Castella, a specialty of Nagasaki and brought to Japan by Portuguese way back 16th century. It is also known as Japanese Sponge Cake that made of sugar, eggs, flour and starch syrup. The fluffy texture and light taste of sponge cake and the unique style of cooking this is very interesting. Since Japan is one of the countries that cook traditionally they still use the unique way of cooking or backing this cake traditionally until now.
