Castella custard cake is my version of a custard cake. It's a Filipino cake that is one of the all-time favorites here in the Philippines. It's a combination of castella cake and the custard which is the leche flan.

A Castella is a Japanese sponge cake made from a mixture of eggs, flour, butter, milk, and eggs. The difference between a Castella sponge cake and the ordinary sponge cake is that a Castella is more delicate, finer, and more bouncy in texture. It is jiggly. That is the beauty of this cake.

Combined with leche flan, the cake is bursting with so many flavors because as always I try to upgrade my cakes to a higher level. This recipe yields four different flavors of Castella Custard Cake-the original, chocolate, ube, and strawberry.
