Baked Egg Cake ~ 烤鸡蛋糕


The recipe for this soft and light Baked Egg Cake is derived from the original recipe for steamed egg cake or Ji Dan Gao  (糕). I like the texture of this cake which is not too sweet and it does pair very well with a hot cup of our local black coffee.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包
