Castella Cake aka Kasutera or 蜂蜜蛋糕

Thanks to my baking lover for introducing this cake to me. Looks easy, so I gave it a try. Indeed easier than chiffon. Texture wise, it's kinda chewy. When I first tasted it, I don't quite like it (i ate those side trim offs, which is rather dry), however when I ate it the next morning, it's moist. Still, i find it rather sweet for my liking, still love chiffon more. hahaha.

2 egg white
2 egg yolk
50g sugar (original was 70g)
50g bread flour
1 tbsp honey diluted with 1 tbsp hot water

1. Line pan with aluminum foil, followed by parchment paper.
2. Preheat the oven to 165'C.
3. Beat egg whites till foamy. Add in sugar gradually and beat till almost peak.
4. Add in egg yolk, one by one, mix till combine.
5. Mix in the sifted bread flour.
6. Pour in honey mixture, mix well.
7. Pour the ready batter into lined pan. Give it a bang and take a satay stick to run over the batter.
8. Bake for 45 mins.
9. Remove from oven and drop it onto counter top to prevent shrinkage.
10. When the cake is slightly cool, remove the parchment paper and wrap the cake in a new piece of parchment paper. Cling wrap it and store in airtight container overnight.
11. The next day, trim off the sides and slice the cake.
