We are now in Japan , the land of rising sun .Japanese cuisine is based on combining staple foods, mostly Japanese rice or noodles, with a soup and dishes made from fish, vegetable, tofu etc.

The original recipe calls for 7 eggs , since we don't use eggs , I tried to replace eggs with milk and condensed milk. The texture of cake was not as spongy as it should be with eggs but the taste was outstanding. This cake tastes better the next days and best served as it is without any frosting.So let's start the recipe .yum

Capital- Tokyo
Dish- Castella

1 can / 400 g condensed milk
