A few weeks ago on our way to (and then back) Cape Cod for my brother's wedding, we stopped by our favorite Japanese shopping center across the Hudson River from NY (you can see Columbia University from the shopping center). I was admiring all the Japanese sweets (well, food in general) the place had to offer. Besides the usual obanyaki that my dad always buys whenever we go to this store (childhood favorite of his), there were some ultra fancy sweets as well.

Now I want to make the Japanese style sponge cake called Kasutera, or Castella, or 長崎蛋糕. It's interesting that this cake is a 16th Century Portuguese import to Nagasaki. I think the honey cake recipe my mom gave me is actually related to kasutera, but I want to try a few recipes out as well as find some actual kasutera while in Japan.
