Green tea Castella : 抹茶カステラ

 It's not your ordinary cake ^^, I must say this.



 As you can see that this cake has bread flour in the ingredient list. Why bread flour? Because bread flour has more gluten and it makes this cake firm and gives the cake more texture than cake flour. Castella made with honey, let the cake rest for 12 hours will make the cake become richer in taste and moist texture (as the honey is highly hygroscopic kind of sugar)  with bread flour, the cake will stay firm. The result the you get from all your hard work (well, I know it's not that hard, haha)  is the sweet and fragrance cake that will be lingering in your mouth longer, give you more time to enjoy it with a cup of good tea.
