Castella Sweet Aroma Spongecake

Castella, a Japanese sponge cake, is a specialty and popular souvenir of Nagasaki. Originally from Portugal, the snack was brought into Japan during the 16th century by Portugal merchants. The cake has a light mustard yellow color and a layer of dark brown on top. The sponge is made from flour, sugar, eggs, and starch syrup and has a fluffy texture. The moist spongecake has a nice sweet aroma and taste. Today variations of the castella exist such as green tea castella and brown sugar castella.
