Japanese Style Matcha Castella Sponge Cake by Imuraya is a very light yet subtly sweet dessert or a snack. This traditional Japanese sponge cake is packed with matcha powder for that grassy taste. Very bouncy and soft in nature, Castella's secret lies in the eggs. The recipe needs just the right consistency of egg whites to achieve that famous soft bounce.
In Japan, the art of confectionery is deeply intertwined with the culture of the tea ceremony. As part of the tea ceremony dating back to around the 12th century, it was customary to serve some sweet substance, typically made from grape ivy at a time, to balance matcha tea's bitterness. However, once Portuguese traders helped popularize sugar, the Japanese quickly integrated it into their cuisine, giving the world sugar and egg-laden delicacies like Castella. During the Edo period (1603-1867), Japan witnessed tremendous commercialization of tea-time sweets, with specialty boutiques opening in significant towns. While developing a sophisticated selection of sweets and snacks on its own, Japanese culture gradually became increasingly exposed to western imports, providing the world with memorable fusions of the two, such as the best-selling Matcha Kit-Kat. However, unlike their European counterparts, Japanese sweets are distinguished by a lower fat content and a more moderate, subtle sweetness flavor.
