Sponge Cake (Mamon)
Mamon is a Filipino yellow sponge cake made with simple ingredients such as eggs, flour and sugar. It is sweet, soft and spongy. This delicate dessert comes in different shapes and flavors, as well. In the Philippines, you can see mamon made into many shapes such as bananas, oblongs, and more. Now, I know a lot of you hate complicated ingredients and methods. So, in this recipe, we have tried our best to keep our mamon simple and easy. You just need a few basic ingredients, and you also don’t need a bunch of eggs (which we were really trying to avoid)! But if you have a stock of eggs on hand, then go ahead and use them. I will not make this any longer. I know you want to make mamon for your kids. So here are the ingredients.
