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.

  7. Bake in a preheated oven @ 170 deg.C for 35 mins.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  8. Overturn the pan onto a wire rack to let the cake cool completely.   
Note :  The cake will shrink a little as with most sponge cakes.  Trim off the sides before slicing to serve.
