TODAY'S SWEET: KASTERA (カステラ)
Kastera (usually spelled "Castella," or "Kasutera") is moist sponge cake originally from Portugal, but brought to Japan by missionaries in the 16th century. It is a specialty in Nagasaki, one of the largest cities in the Kyushu island of Japan.
I found a simple recipe for the treat on the convenient site Japanese Cooking 101, and decided to test it out! Check out my experience in the video below:
