Sponge cake (Mamon as it’s called in the Philippines) is a Filipino yellow sponge cake made with a few simple ingredients such as eggs, flour and sugar. It is sweet, soft and spongy. This delcious 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. We all hate complicated recipes, so we have made this sponge cake as simple and easy as possible.
