Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

IMG_0797– the original sponge cake recipe bakes for 33-35 mins. as it did not state which rack to bake it on, i baked on second lowest rack, which explains why it took me 45 mins baking time
海绵蛋糕原食谱烘焙时间为 33-35分钟。因食谱没注明该用烤箱那层烘焙,我用了倒数第二层,所以烘焙时间较长

  • you will have extra custard from this recipe. chill the extra and enjoy as pudding

IMG_0757– this is high maltose syrup. if you do not have it, you can replace with honey or light corn syrup, but yes, it is said that substitution affects the texture. please refer to this post to purchase
这是我用的水饴(念 “yi”~和意思的“意”同音)。如没有,可用蜂蜜或玉米糖浆替代。不过,据说会影响蛋糕口感。购买链接可参考此博文

– i suggest using good coconut cream. i use Chaokoh 100% coconut cream. however, if you do not have it, you can replace with coconut milk in entirety
建议用好的浓椰浆。我用的是 Chaokoh 牌子 100% 纯浓椰浆。但要是木有,可以用椰浆完全替代

  • these are the hoon kueh flour and cream style corn i use~ easily available in supermarkets
