Castella Cake: Soft and fluffy Castella cake

 I post this cake a long time a ago, actually it's one of my favorite cake ^^. But at that time it's quite too sweet for my Mom.


But if you use only a whisk to make this kind of sponge cake, a load of sugar helps keeping the mixture thick and make the cake moist. I think about making it again when I listen to this situation CD  ひめのかぞくをしょうかいします! ~まさはるおにいちゃんといっしょ!~  (introducing princess' family member: With brother Masaharu) that my favorite Seiyu: Sato Takuya-san (佐藤拓也) is the actor ^^. 
Well, if you never know what situation CD is, I will tell you, in this kind of CD, the actor will talk to you as if you're one of the character in the story, and in this story you (or me, hehe), is the princess. And the princess is 5 years old, it means while listen to this CD I'm 5 years old girl, hahahahaha!!!! When the actor (Bro-Masaharu) is an university student. The story started when bro-Masaharu come to pick me (please remember, now I'm still in the kindergarten ^^ and try not to laugh). While going back home, we talk about the tale that I read at the kindergarten, and I really want to make "Castella". So, my brother (Masaharuniichan) think that we can make it together. It's how the story goes, and it makes me want to make the Castella too. (I really want to talk about the CD more but I don't want your stomach to be hurt by laughing too much, haha).
This time I make the Castella cake using hand mixer as I reduce the sugar from 180g to 120 g, it's easier to beat the egg until thick. The baking time is long but as we pour the hot water into the pan and reduce the temperature, the cake is still moist. 
This cake is not the same as the one that I made with Masaharuniichan but I think it's delicious enough for me to enjoy with a cup of hot tea.
