Osaka Cake

Image Hosted by PicturePush - Photo Sharing

Starting my New Year post with an interesting cake which I have heard so much about and finally stumble upon in a local bakery near my place.
It is a cake, like its name, popular in Japan among the locals.

The Osaka cake may sound like a popularized version of a local cake, but this is not just any cake as this is a rather unique soft type of cake oozing with light goodness.

The Osaka cake is a light and fluffy type of sponge cake, with a filling of lightly battered custard cream.

It is not too sweet and is just light; which is my favorite part of the cake.

It's a pity that this cake is quite rare, as it is indeed a gem of a cake!
Have you ever tried this before?

  3. I've been to Osaka before but never saw this cake there! It sounds terrific, I love light airy sponges and having custard in the middle is just indulgence...
    I did have one cake in Osaka that I loved and that was a very very light and fluffy Japanese style cheese cake...I was so in love...
